New International Version
12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
the afflicted who have no one to help.
13 He will take pity(A) on the weak and the needy
and save the needy from death.
14 He will rescue(B) them from oppression and violence,
for precious(C) is their blood in his sight.
15 Long may he live!
May gold from Sheba(D) be given him.
May people ever pray for him
and bless him all day long.(E)
16 May grain(F) abound throughout the land;
on the tops of the hills may it sway.
May the crops(G) flourish like Lebanon(H)
and thrive[a] like the grass of the field.(I)
17 May his name endure forever;(J)
may it continue as long as the sun.(K)
20 This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse.(R)
