Psalm 72:5

They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

They shall fear thee,.... The King Messiah, the Judge of the poor, and the destroyer of the oppressor: either the tyrants and oppressors themselves shall fear him, and such who have been aiding and assisting to them; see Revelation 11:11; or rather the people of God, the poor of the people, and children of the needy, judged and saved by Christ; who shall fear the Lord, both internally and externally, in the exercise of grace, and in the performance of religious worship; in all the parts of it, which are both included in the fear of the Lord; of which there will be many instances, both among Jews and Gentiles, in the latter day; see Hosea 3:5; and this they shall do,

as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations; or, "with the sun, and before the moon, generation of generations" {r}; that is, to the end of the world, until sun and moon shall be no more: so long will Christ have a seed to serve him:; see Psalms 89:36.
