like yshowers that water the earth!
7 In his days may zthe righteous flourish,
and apeace abound, till the moon be no more!
8 May he have dominion from bsea to sea,
9 May desert tribes dbow down before him,
and his enemies elick the dust!
render him htribute;
11 May all kings kfall down before him,
all nations serve him!
12 For he delivers lthe needy when he calls,
the poor and him who has no helper.
and saves the lives of the needy.
and mprecious is their blood in his sight.
may ngold of Sheba be given to him!
May prayer be made ofor him continually,
and blessings invoked for him all the day!
on the tops of the mountains may it wave;
may its fruit be like Lebanon;
and may people pblossom in the cities
like the qgrass of the field!
17 rMay his name endure forever,
his fame continue as long as the sun!
sMay people be blessed in him,
tall nations call him blessed!
That is, the Euphrates
