May he grant justice to the people who are oppressed. May he save the children of needy people and crush their oppressor….

He will rescue the needy person who cries for help and the oppressed person who has no one’s help. He will have pity on the poor and needy and will save the lives of the needy. He will rescue them from oppression and violence. Their blood will be precious in his sight.

~ Psalm 72: 4, 12-14; God’s Word translation. Baker’s Bible Commentary of the Bible writes the early church preserved Psalm 72 as “a description of the reign of the Messiah, and a manifesto of the ideal society ruled as God intends.”
