L:  Give the king your justice, O God,

L:  May he judge your people with righteousness,
P:  and your poor with justice!
L:  Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness!
P:  May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy,
P:  and crush the oppressor!
L:  May he live while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations!
P:  May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth!
