King David Sings A Prayer For His Son Solomon
1 Authority [David sings,] “Oh Elohim, give [me,] the [aging] king, your [wise ability to] judge. [Pass] your ethical-integrity to [my] son, [Israel's future] king.
See 2Ch 1. This is David's prayer for Solomon. But it ends up being fulfilled only by the Messiah in the end-times.
2 Justice [I see my son's future:] He judges your people with [absolute] fairness. He vindicates your oppressed [workers].
3 Peace The mountains yield prosperity for [earth's] people. The hills [fill with] virtuous [kindness].
4 Authority [The coming king] liberates the [world's] downtrodden [masses]. He frees needy [laborers'] children. He crushes all extortionists.
5 YAH (the Most High Creator) [All people come to] fear you, [YHVH], as long as the sun and moon [shine] their faces [on humanity], throughout all generations.
6 Authority [The king] descends [to help people], like rain [falls] on mown grass, like showers drench the earth [with life].
7 Authority All the days of the righteous [king], peace buds [and flourishes. Ultimately, the Messiah's goodness] outlasts the moon.
8 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven [The Messiah] holds dominion from sea to sea, from the [Euphrates] river to the ends of the earth.
9 Authority Desert-dwellers bow before [Christ's] face. His enemies lick the dust.
10 Authority The kings of Tarshish {Gem} and [other remote] coastlands bring presents [to Israel's end-times king]. The monarchs of [African] Sheba {Ethiopia} and Seba {Congo} offer him gifts.
Tarshish may = Spain.
11 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven Yes, all [the world's] rulers fall down before [heaven's king]. All beast-nations serve him.
12 Authority [History's ultimate human king] rescues crying, starving [people from the fists of criminals]. He surrounds the oppressed [worker with a forcefield of power].
13 Compassion [Christ] covers skinny, panting [refugees who dangle by threads]. He lifts the pauper's [dying] body [off the nasty street and into a wide, open estate of safety].
14 Honoring and Serving The Poor [The Messiah] buys back the penniless [beggar's] life from violent frauds. [Christ] treats the [poor child's every drop of] blood as a priceless [treasure].
15 Success [Yahshua] thrives. [The monarchs] of Sheba {Ethiopia} give him [tons of] gold. [People] pray about him nonstop. All day long [they] kneel [before] him.
16 Yah's Provision (Assurance) Grain fills the earth's [hands from the valleys] to the mountaintops. Fruit waves [in our orchards] like [the sky-scraping] cedars of the white mountains [of Lebanon]. Cities twinkle [with light,] like grass blossoming over the earth.
17 Authority [Christ the king's] name endures forever. His fame propagates, shooting out to the face of the sun. Humanity kneels [before] him. All beast-nations call him [the provider of] happiness.
18 YAH (the Most High Creator) [Earth's billions] adore [you,] YHVH Elohim, Israel's Sovereign, [sole] performer of incomparable miracles.
19 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven [All beings] honor [YHVH's] glorious name forever, 😇. [YAH] fills the whole earth with his everlasting splendor [and] faithfulness.”
20 Prayer 😇, here end the [recorded] prayers of David {Love}, the son of Yashai (Jesse).
