The hills bring the fruit of righteousness

72:5 They shall fear you while the sun endures;
and as long as the moon, throughout all generations

The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts

the poor, who has no helper.
72:13 He will have pity on the poor and needy.
He will save the souls of the needy
72:14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence.
Their blood will be precious in his sight
72:15 They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba.
Men shall pray for him continually.
They shall bless him all day long
72:16 Abundance of grain shall be throughout the land.
Its fruit sways like Lebanon.
Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.

His name continues as long as the sun.
Men shall be blessed by him.
All nations will call him blessed
72:18 Praise be to Yahweh God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds
