Psalm 72 and Isaiah 11:1-10 are linked together through a Midrash among other ways. The Talmud applies Psalm 72 as speaking of the righteous reign of the Messiah and makes the first verse to read as follows: "Give the sentence of they judgment to the King Messiah, and thy justice to the son of David the King."
One of the names given to the Messiah in the Talmud comes from Psalm 72 verse 17. (Yinnon)
