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

1A Psalme of Salomon. Giue thy iudgements to the King, O God, and thy righteousnesse to the Kings sonne.

2Then shal he iudge thy people in righteousnesse, and thy poore with equitie.

3The mountaines & the hilles shall bring peace to the people by iustice.

4He shall iudge the poore of the people: he shall saue the children of the needie, and shal subdue the oppressor.

5They shall feare thee as long as the sunne and moone endureth, fro generatio to generation.

6He shall come downe like the rayne vpon the mowen grasse, and as the showres that water the earth.

7In his dayes shall the righteous florish, and abundance of peace shalbe so long as the moone endureth.

8His dominion shall be also from sea to sea, and from the Riuer vnto the endes of the land.

9They that dwell in ye wildernes, shall kneele before him, and his enemies shall licke the dust.

10The Kings of Tarshish & of the yles shall bring presents: the Kings of Sheba and Seba shall bring giftes.

11Yea, all Kings shal worship him: all nations shall serue him.

12For he shall deliuer the poore when he cryeth: the needie also, and him that hath no helper.

13He shalbe mercifull to the poore and needie, and shall preserue the soules of the poore.

14He shall redeeme their soules from deceite and violence, and deare shall their blood be in his sight.

15Yea, he shall liue, and vnto him shall they giue of the golde of Sheba: they shall also pray for him continually, and dayly blesse him.

16An handfull of corne shall be sowen in the earth, euen in the toppe of the mountaines, and the fruite thereof shall shake like the trees of Lebanon: and the children shall florish out of the citie like the grasse of the earth.

17His name shall be for euer: his name shall indure as long as the sunne: all nations shall blesse him, and be blessed in him.

18Blessed be the Lorde God, euen the God of Israel, which onely doeth wonderous things.

19And blessed be his glorious Name for euer: and let all the earth be filled with his glorie. So be it, euen so be it.

20Here end the prayers of Dauid, the sonne of Ishai.
