“O God, with your judgment endow the king, and with your justice, the king’s son;

He shall govern your people with justice and your afflicted ones with judgment.

The mountains shall yield peace for the people, and the hills justice.

He shall defend the afflicted among the people, save the children of the poor.

Justice shall flower in his days, and profound peace, till the moon be no more.

May he rule from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

May his name be blessed forever; As long as the sun his name shall remain.

In him shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed;  All the nations shall proclaim his happiness.” – Psalms 72(71):1-2.3-4ab.7-8.17.
