Deus, judicium.

Give the King thy | judgments•, O God,

* and thy righteousness | unto• the King's son.

2 Then shall he judge thy people according | unto right,

* and de- | -fend the poor.

3 The mountains also shall | bring peace,

* and the little hills | righteous•ness •unto• the people.

4 He shall keep the simple folk | by their right,

* defend the children of the poor, and | punish• the wrong doer.

5 They shall fear thee, as long as the sun and | moon en- | -dureth,

* from one gener- | -ation to another.

6 He shall come down like the rain upon the | mown grass,

* even as the | drops that •water• the earth.

7 In his time shall the | righteous flourish;

* yea, and abundance of peace, so | long •as the• moon endureth.

8 His dominion shall be also from the one sea | to the other,

* and from the River | unto• the world's end.

9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall | kneel before him;

* his ene- | -mies shall lick the dust.

10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall | give presents;

* the kings of Arabia and | Saba shall bring gifts.

11 All kings shall fall | down before him;

* all | nations• shall do him service.

12 For he shall deliver the poor | when he crieth;

* the needy also, and | him that hath no helper.

13 He shall be favourable to the | simple• and needy,

* and shall preserve the | souls of the poor.

14 He shall deliver their souls from | falsehood• and wrong;

* and dear shall their | blood be in his sight.

15 He shall live, and unto him shall be given of the gold | of Arabia;

* prayer shall be made ever unto him, and | daily• shall he be praised.

16 There shall be an heap of corn in the earth, high upon the hills; the fruit thereof shall | shake like Lebanon:

* and they of the city shall flourish like | grass upon the earth.

17 His Name shall endure for ever; his Name shall remain under the sun among the posterities, which shall be | blessed in him;

* and | all the •nations• shall praise him.

18 Blessed be the Lord God, even the | God of Israel,

* which only | doeth wondrous things;

19 And blessed be the Name of his majes- | -ty for ever:

* and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. | Amen, Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
