Psalm 72:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 72[a]

A Prayer for the King

Of Solomon.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 72 A royal Psalm in which the Israelite king, as the representative of God, is the instrument of divine justice (Ps 72:1–4, 12–14) and blessing (Ps 72:5–7, 15–17) for the whole world. The king is human, giving only what he has received from God. Hence intercession must be made for him. The extravagant language is typical of oriental royal courts.
