2 (71-2) may he judge righteously your people and your poor in judgment;
3 (71-3) may the mountains bring peace to the people and the hills of truth;
4 (71-4) may he judge the poor of the people, may he save the sons of the wretched and humble the oppressor, -
5 (71-5) and they will be afraid of you, until the sun and moon abide in childbirth.
6 (71-6) He will descend like rain on a sloping meadow, like drops irrigating the earth;
7 (71-7) in his days the righteous thrives, and there will be an abundance of peace, until the moon ceases;
eight (71-8) he will possess from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth;
nine (71-9) the inhabitants of the deserts will fall before him, and his enemies will lick the dust;
ten (71-10) the kings of Tarshish and the islands will pay tribute to him; the kings of Arabia and Sava will bring gifts;

16 (71-16) there will be plenty of bread on the earth, at the top of the mountains; its fruits will be agitated like [the forest] in Lebanon, and people will multiply in the cities like grass on the earth;
