Yes, forever!H3372H5973H8121H3394H6440H1755H1755 6May the king’s rule be refreshing like spring rain on freshly cut grass, like the showers that water the earth.H3381H4306H1488H7241H2222H776 7May all the godly flourish during his reign. May there be abundant prosperity until the moon is no more.H3117H6662H6524H7230H7965H3394 8May he reign from sea to sea, and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.H7287H3220H3220H5104H657H776 9Desert nomads will bow before him; his enemies will fall before him in the dust.H6728H3766H6440H341H3897H6083 10The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts.H4428H8659H339H7725H4503H4428H7614H5434H7126H814 11All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him.H4428H7812H1471H5647 12He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them.H5337H34H7768H6041H5826 13He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them.H2347H1800H34H3467H5315H34 14He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him.H1350H5315H8496H2555H3365H1818H5869 15Long live the king! May the gold of Sheba be given to him. May the people always pray for him and bless him all day long.H2421H5414H2091H7614H6419H8548H3117H1288 16May there be abundant grain throughout the land, flourishing even on the hilltops. May the fruit trees flourish like the trees of Lebanon, and may the people thrive like grass in a field.H6451H1250H776H7218H2022H6529H7493H3844H5892H6692H6212H776 17May the king’s name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun shines. May all nations be blessed through him and bring him praise.H8034H5769H8034H5125H5125H6440H8121H1288H1471H833 18Praise the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does such wonderful things.H1288H3068H430H430H3478H6213H6381 19Praise his glorious name forever!
