The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness (Ps. 72:3)
In this "royal" psalm, long interpreted as Messianic, the mountains and hills, not considered usually productive, are represented as bearing qualities of peace—a word which includes prosperity. Moffatt has, "May justice bring welfare to the people, from the very hills and mountains!" (See also Isa. 52:7.)
Amen (Ps. 72:19) (a'men'—a as in ace, e as in end; often a as in arm, e as in end—always in singing). A word occurring in this form in many languages, including Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and Anglo-Saxon. It is generally construed as meaning, "so is it; so shall it be; so be it," and is used in solemn ratification of an expression of faith, a creed, prayer, blessing, or the like. The Hebrew root 'aman with which it is connected implies faith, stability, constancy, truth.
