Psalm 72:3-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

May the mountains bring prosperity[a] to the people
and the hills, righteousness.
May he vindicate the afflicted among the people,
help the poor,
and crush the oppressor.

May he continue[b] while the sun endures
and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
May he be like rain that falls on the cut grass,
like spring showers that water the earth.
May the righteous[c] flourish in his days
and prosperity[d] abound
until the moon is no more.

May he rule from sea to sea
and from the Euphrates
to the ends of the earth.
