God, endow the king with your own justice, his royal person with your righteousness, that he may govern your people rightly and deal justly with your oppressed ones. … May he give judgement for the oppressed among the people and help to the needy; may he crush the oppressor. … For he will rescue the needy who appeal for help, the distressed who have no protector. He will have pity on the poor and the needy, and deliver the needy from death; he will redeem them from oppression and violence and their blood will be precious in his eyes.
