1. 72:1  <<A Psalm for Solomon.>> Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
  2. 2  He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
  3. 3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
  4. 4  He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
  5. 5  They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
  6. 6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
  7. 7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
  8. 8  He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
  9. 9  They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
  10. 10  The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
  11. 11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
  12. 12  For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
  13. 13  He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
  14. 14  He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
  15. 15  And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
  16. 16  There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
  17. 17  His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
  18. 18  Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
  19. 19  And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
  20. 20  The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
  21. Romans

  22. 10:1  Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
  23. 2  For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
  24. 3  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
  25. 4  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
  26. 5  For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
  27. 6  But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
  28. 7  Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
  29. 8  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
  30. 9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
  31. 10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
  32. 11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
  33. 12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
  34. 13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  35. 14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
  36. 15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
  37. 16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
  38. 17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
  39. 18  But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
  40. 19  But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
  41. 20  But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
  42. 21  But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
