Deus, judicium.GIVE the King thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the King's son. Then shall he judge thy people according unto right, and defend the poor. The mountains also shall bring peace, and the little hills righteousness unto the people. He shall keep the simple folk by their right, defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrong doer. They shall fear thee, as long as the sun and moon endureth, from one generation to another. He shall come down like the rain upon the mown grass, even as the drops that water the earth. In his time shall the righteous flourish; yea, and abundance of peace, so long as the moon endureth. His dominion shall be also from the one sea to the other, and from the River unto the world's end. They that dwell in the wilderness shall kneel before him; his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall give presents; the kings of Arabia and Saba shall bring gifts. All kings shall fall down before him; all nations shall do him service. For he shall deliver the poor when he crieth; the needy also, and him that hath no helper. He shall be favourable to the simple and needy, and shall preserve the souls of the poor. He shall deliver their souls from falsehood and wrong; and dear shall their blood be in his sight. He shall live, and unto him shall be given of the gold of Arabia; prayer shall be made ever unto him, and daily shall he be praised. There shall be an heap of corn in the earth, high upon the hills ; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass upon the earth. His Name shall endure for ever; his Name shall re-main under the sun among the posterities, which shall be blessed in him; and all the nations shall praise him. Blessed be the LORD God, even the God of Israel, which only doeth wondrous things; And blessed be the Name of his majesty for ever: and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. Amen, Amen.
