1 A Psalm according to Solomon.
2 Give your judgment, O God, to the king, and your justice to the king's son, to judge your people with justice and your poor with judgment.
3 Let the mountains take up peace for the people, and the hills, justice.
4 He will judge the poor of the people, and he will bring salvation to the sons of the poor. And he will humble the false accuser.
5 And he will remain, with the sun and before the moon, from generation to generation.
6 He will descend like rain upon fleece, and like showers showering upon the earth.
7 In his days, justice will rise like the sun, with abundance of peace, until the moon is taken away.
8 And he will rule from sea to sea and from the river to the limits of the whole world.
9 In his sight, the Ethiopians will fall prostrate, and his enemies will lick the ground.
10 The kings of Tarshish and the islands will offer gifts. The kings of Arabia and of Seba will bring gifts.
11 And all the kings of the earth shall adore him. All nations will serve him.
12 For he will free the poor from the powerful, and the poor one who has no helper.
13 He will spare the poor and the indigent, and he will bring salvation to the souls of the poor.
1 Rise up to be illuminated, O Jerusalem! For your light has arrived, and the glory of the Lord has risen over you.
2 For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and thick darkness will cover the peoples. Then the Lord will rise above you, and his glory will be seen in you.
3 And the nations will walk in your light, and the kings will walk by the splendor of your rising.
4 Lift up your eyes all around and see! All these have been gathered together; they have arrived before you. Your sons will arrive from far away, and your daughters will rise up from your side.
5 Then you will see, and you will overflow, and your heart will be amazed and expanded. When the multitude of the sea will have been converted to you, the strength of the nations will approach you.
6 A multitude of camels will inundate you: the dromedaries from Midian and Ephah. All those from Sheba will arrive, carrying gold and frankincense, and announcing praise to the Lord.
