[Of Solomon.]
O God geue vnto the kyng thy iudgementes: and thy ryghteousnesse vnto the kynges sonne.
[Then] he wyll iudge thy people accordyng vnto iustice: and thy afflicted accordyng to equitie.
The mountaynes also and hylles: shall bryng peace to the people by the meanes of ryghteousnesse.
He wyll iudge the afflicted amongst the people: he wyll saue the children of the poore, and subdue the oppressour.
They wyll feare thee as long as the sunne and moone shyneth: from one generation to another.
He wyll come downe lyke the rayne into a fleece of wooll: euen as the droppes that water the earth.
In his dayes the ryghteous wyll florishe: and there shalbe aboundaunce of peace so long as the moone endureth.
His dominion also shalbe from the one sea to the other: and from the fludde vnto the ende of the earth.
They that dwell in the wildernesse shal kneele before him: his enemies shal licke the dust.
The kyng of Tharsis and of the Iles shall offer presentes: the kynges of Sheba & Seba shall bring giftes.
All kynges wyll worshyp hym: all nations wyll do hym seruice.
For he wyll delyuer the poore when he cryeth: and the afflicted and hym that hath no helper.
He wyll haue compassion vpon the poore and needy: and he wyll preserue the soules of the poore.
He wyll delyuer their soules from deceipt and oppression: and their blood shalbe in his syght.
He wyll lyue, and he wyll geue to the poore of the golde of Sheba: and he wyll pray alwayes for hym, and dayly he wyll blesse hym.
A handfull of corne shall [be sowed] in the earth vpon the toppe of hylles: and the fruite therof shall make a noyse lyke Libanus, and shall florishe in the citie lyke grasse vpon the earth.
His name shall endure for euer, his name shalbe spread abrode to the world so long as the sunne shall shyne: all nations shalbe blessed in hym, and shall call hym blessed.
Blessed be God the Lorde: the Lorde of Israel which only doth wonderous thynges.
And blessed be the name of his maiestie for euer: and all the earth shalbe fylled with his maiestie.
Amen, Amen.
Here endeth the prayers of Dauid the sonne of Isai.
