Psalm 72: Solomon’s prayer for his reign after David died

David’s gone and I am king.

Bless my reign, oh Lord.

Let all adversity take wing.

Let my dominion stretch

from sea to shining sea,

and all other kings pledge

tribute to me.

Let the fields be fertile,

and the gold flow abundantly.

Let the buildings be of marble

and everyone prosper!
