Endow the King with Your Justice
(1 Kings 3:1–15; 2 Chronicles 1:1–13; Psalm 45:1–17)

1Geue the kinge thy iudgmet (o God) and thy rightuousnesse vnto the kynges sonne.

2That he maye gouerne thy people acordinge vnto right, and defende thy poore.

3That the mountaynes maye brynge peace, and the litle hilles rightuousnes vnto the people.

4He shal kepe the symple folke by their right, defende the childre of the poore, and punysh the wrongeous doer.

5Thou shalt be feared as longe as ye Sonne and the Moone endureth, from one generacion to another.

6He shal come downe like the rayne in to a flese of woll, and like the droppes that water ye earth.

7In his tyme shal rightuousnesse florish, yee and abundauce of peace, so longe as the Moone endureth.

8His dominion shalbe from the one see to the other, and from the floude vnto the worldes ende.

9They that dwell in the wildernes, shal knele before him, & his enemies shal licke the dust.

10The kynges of the see and of the Iles shal brynge presentes, ye kinges of Araby & Saba shall offre giftes.

11All kynges shal worshipe him, & all Heithe shal do him seruyce.

12For he shal deliuer the poore whe he crieth, & the nedy yt hath no helpe.

13He shall be fauorable to the symple & poore, he shal preserue the soules of soch as be in aduersite.

14He shal deliuer their soules from extorcion & wronge, & deare shal their bloude be in his sight.

15He shal lyue, & vnto him shalbe geue of ye golde of Arabia: Prayer shal be made euer vnto him, & daylie shal he be praysed.

16There shalbe an heape of corne in the earth hye vpon the hilles, his frute shal shake like Libanus, & shal be grene in the cite, like grasse vpo the earth.

17His name shal endure for euer, his name shal remayne vnder the sonne amonge the posterites, which shalbe blessed thorow him, & all the Heithen shal prayse him.

18Blessed be the LORDE God, euen the God of Israel, which only doth woderous thinges.

19And blessed be the name of his maiesty for euer, and all londes be fulfilled with his glory. Amen, Amen.
