PSALM 72:4-13

A (4) He shall judge the poor of the people, HE SHALL SAVE

B (4) the children OF THE NEEDY, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

C (5) They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon ENDURE <06440>, throughout all generations.

D (6) He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water THE EARTH.

E (7) In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

D1 (8) He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of THE EARTH.

C1 (9-11) They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow BEFORE <06440> him; and his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

B1 (12,13) For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and NEEDY, … the souls OF THE NEEDY.

A1 (13) and SHALL SAVE …

Note in the Hebrew text “he shall save” comes at end of v. 13
