72 Give the king Your judgments, O God, And Your righteousness to the king’s son. 2 [a]May [b]he judge Your people with righteousness And [c]Your afflicted with justice. 3 [d]Let the mountains bring [e]peace to the people, And the hills, in righteousness. 4 [f]May he vindicate the [g]afflicted of the people, Save the children of the needy And crush the oppressor.
6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will [a]rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. 7 There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
4 But with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. 5 Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, And faithfulness the belt about His waist.
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is [a]just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the [b]foal of a donkey.
