Psalm 72:3–8

May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,

the hills the fruit of righteousness.

May he defend the afflictedr among the people

and save the children of the needy;s

may he crush the oppressor.t

May he endurea u as long as the sun,

as long as the moon, through all generations.v

May he be like rainw falling on a mown field,

like showers watering the earth.

In his days may the righteous flourishx

and prosperity abound till the moon is no more.

May he rule from sea to sea

and from the Riverb y to the ends of the earth.z
