A Psalm of Solomon.
1 Give the king aYour judgments, O God,
And bYour righteousness to the king’s son.
And the hills, in righteousness.
Save the children of the needy
And crush the oppressor.
And 2as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
Like bshowers that water the earth.
And babundance of peace till the moon is no more.
8 May he also rule afrom sea to sea
And from the River to the ends of the earth.
And his enemies click the dust.
All bnations serve him.
12 For he will adeliver the needy when he cries for help,
The 1afflicted also, and him who has no helper.
13 He will have acompassion on the poor and needy,
And the 1lives of the needy he will save.
And their blood will be bprecious in his sight;
15 So may he live, and may the agold of Sheba be given to him;
And let 1them pray for him continually;
Let 1them bless him all day long.
Its fruit will wave like the cedars of aLebanon;
And may those from the city flourish like bvegetation of the earth.
17 May his aname endure forever;
And let men cbless themselves by him;
dLet all nations call him blessed.
18 aBlessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
Who alone bworks wonders.
19 And blessed be His aglorious name forever;
And may the whole bearth be filled with His glory.
cAmen, and Amen.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
