Psalm 072

1    O Lord, thy judgments give the king,

          his son thy righteousness.

2    With right he shall thy people judge,

          thy poor with uprightness.

3    The lofty mountains shall bring forth

          unto the people peace;

     Likewise the little hills the same

          shall do by righteousness.

4    The people’s poor ones he shall judge,

          the needy’s children save;

     And those shall he in pieces break

          who them oppressed have.

5    They shall thee fear, while sun and moon

          do last, through ages all.

6    Like rain on mown grass he shall drop,

          or show’rs on earth that fall.

7    The just shall flourish in his days,

          and prosper in his reign:

     He shall, while doth the moon endure,

          abundant peace maintain.

8    His large and great dominion shall

          from sea to sea extend:

     It from the river shall reach forth

          unto earth’s utmost end.

9    They in the wilderness that dwell

          bow down before him must;

     And they that are his enemies

          shall lick the very dust.

10   The kings of Tarshish, and the isles,

          to him shall presents bring;

     And unto him shall offer gifts

          Sheba’s and Seba’s king.

11   Yea, all the mighty kings on earth

          before him down shall fall;

     And all the nations of the world

          do service to him shall.

12   For he the needy shall preserve,

          when he to him doth call;

     The poor also, and him that hath

          no help of man at all.

13   The poor man and the indigent

          in mercy he shall spare;

     He shall preserve alive the souls

          of those that needy are.

14   Both from deceit and violence

          their soul he shall set free;

     And in his sight right precious

          and dear their blood shall be.

15   Yea, he shall live, and giv’n to him

          shall be of Sheba’s gold:

     For him still shall they pray, and he

          shall daily be extoll’d.

16   Of corn an handful in the earth

          on tops of mountains high,

     With prosp’rous fruit shall shake, like trees

          on Lebanon that be.

     The city shall be flourishing,

          her citizens abound

     In number shall, like to the grass

          that grows upon the ground.

17   His name for ever shall endure;

          last like the sun it shall:

     Men shall be bless’d in him, and bless’d

          all nations shall him call.

18   Now blessed be the Lord our God,

          the God of Israel,

     For he alone doth wondrous works,

          in glory that excel.

19   And blessed be his glorious name

          to all eternity:

     The whole earth let his glory fill.

          Amen, so let it be.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
