Amplified Bible

Psalm 72

The Reign of the Righteous King.

A Psalm of Solomon.

1Give the king [knowledge of] Your judgments, O God,
And [the spirit of] Your righteousness to the king’s son [to guide all his ways].

May he judge Your people with righteousness,
And Your afflicted with justice.

The mountains will bring peace and prosperity to the people,
And the hills, in [the establishment of] righteousness.

May he bring justice to the poor among the people,
Save the children of the needy
And crush the oppressor,


Let them fear You [with awe-inspired reverence and worship You with obedience] while the sun endures,
And as long as the moon [reflects light], throughout all generations.

May he come down like rain on the mown grass,
Like showers that water the earth.

In his days may the righteous flourish,
And peace abound until the moon is no more.


May he also rule from sea to sea
And from the River [Euphrates] to the ends of the earth.

The nomads of the desert will bow before him,
And his enemies will [a]lick the dust.
10 
The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring offerings;
The kings of Sheba and Seba will offer gifts.
11 
Yes, all kings will bow down before him,
All nations will serve him.

12 
For he will rescue the needy when he cries for help,
The afflicted and abused also, and him who has no helper.
13 
He will have compassion on the poor and needy,
And he will save the lives of the needy.
14 
He will redeem their life from oppression and fraud and violence,
And their blood will be precious in His sight.
15 
So may he live, and may the gold of Sheba be given to him;
And let them pray for him continually;
Let them bless and praise him all day long.

16 
There will be an abundance of grain in the soil on the top of the [b]mountains;
Its fruit will wave like [the cedars of] Lebanon,
And those of the city will flourish like grass of the earth.
17 
May his name endure forever;
May his name continue as long as the sun;
And let men bless themselves by him;
Let all nations call him blessed.

18 
Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
Who alone does wonderful things.
19 
Blessed be His glorious name forever;
And may the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen.

20 
The prayers of David son of Jesse are ended.

Zabbuli 72

Zabbuli ya Sulemaani.

1Ayi Katonda, kabaka omuwe okuba omwenkanya,
    ne mutabani we omuwe obutuukirivu,
alyoke alamulenga abantu bo mu butuukirivu,
    n’abaavu abalamulenga mu mazima.

Ensozi zireeterenga abantu bo okukulaakulana
    n’obusozi bubaleetere obutuukirivu.
Anaalwaniriranga abaavu,
    n’atereeza abaana b’abo abeetaaga,
    n’omujoozi n’amusaanyaawo.
Abantu bakutyenga ng’enjuba n’omwezi gye bikoma
    okwaka mu mirembe gyonna.
Abeere ng’enkuba bw’etonnya ku muddo ogusaliddwa,
    afaanane ng’oluwandaggirize olufukirira ensi.
Obutuukirivu bweyongere nnyo mu mulembe gwe,
    n’okufuga kwe kujjule emirembe okutuusa omwezi lwe gulikoma okwaka!

Afugenga okuva ku nnyanja okutuuka ku nnyanja,[a]
    n’okuva ku mugga Fulaati[b] okutuuka ku nkomerero z’ensi!
Ebika eby’omu malungu bimugonderenga,
    n’abalabe be bamujeemulukukire beekulukuunye ne mu nfuufu.
10 Bakabaka b’e Talusiisi[c] n’ab’oku bizinga eby’ewala
    bamuwenga omusolo;
bakabaka b’e Syeba n’ab’e Seeba[d]
    bamutonerenga ebirabo.
11 Bakabaka bonna banaavuunamanga mu maaso ge;
    amawanga gonna ganaamuweerezanga.

12 Kubanga anaawonyanga eyeetaaga bw’anaamukoowoolanga,
    n’omwavu ne kateeyamba ataliiko mwasirizi.
13 Anaasaasiranga omunafu n’omwavu;
    n’awonya obulamu bwa kateeyamba.
14 Anaabanunulanga mu mikono gy’omujoozi n’abawonya obukambwe bwe;
    kubanga obulamu bwabwe bwa muwendo mungi gy’ali.

15 Awangaale!
    Aleeterwe zaabu okuva e Syeba.
Abantu bamwegayiririrenga
    era bamusabirenga emikisa buli lunaku.
16 Eŋŋaano ebale nnyingi nnyo mu nsi,
    ebikke n’entikko z’ensozi.
Ebibala byayo byale ng’eby’e Lebanooni;
    n’abantu baale mu bibuga ng’omuddo ogw’oku ttale.
17 Erinnya lye libeerengawo ennaku zonna,
    n’okwatiikirira kwe kube kwa nkalakkalira ng’enjuba.

Amawanga gonna ganaaweebwanga omukisa ku lu lw’erinnya lye,
    era abantu bonna bamuyitenga aweereddwa omukisa.

18 Mukama Katonda agulumizibwe, Katonda wa Isirayiri,
    oyo yekka akola ebyewuunyisa.
19 Erinnya lye ekkulu ligulumizibwenga emirembe n’emirembe!
    Ensi yonna ejjule ekitiibwa kye.
Amiina era Amiina!

20 Okusaba kwa Dawudi mutabani wa Yese kukomye awo.
