Chapter 45

1


 

   For the Chief Musician; set to Shoshannim. [A Psalm] of the sons of Korah. Maschil. A Song of loves. My heart overfloweth with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.  

 

 


2


 

  Thou art fairer than the children of men; Grace is poured into thy lips: Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.  

 

 


3


 

  Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, Thy glory and thy majesty.  

 

 


4


 

  And in thy majesty ride on prosperously, Because of truth and meekness [and] righteousness: And thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.  

 

 


5


 

  Thine arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under thee; [They are] in the heart of the king's enemies.  

 

 


6


 

  Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: A sceptre of equity is the sceptre of thy kingdom.  

 

 


7


 

  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness: Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.  

 

 


8


 

  All thy garments [smell of] myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.  

 

 


9


 

  Kings' daughters are among thy honorable women: At thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.  

 

 


10


 

  Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house:  

 

 


11


 

  So will the king desire thy beauty; For he is thy lord; and reverence thou him.  

 

 


12


 

  And the daughter of Tyre [shall be there] with a gift; The rich among the people shall entreat thy favor.  

 

 


13


 

  The king's daughter within [the palace] is all glorious: Her clothing is inwrought with gold.  

 

 


14


 

  She shall be led unto the king in broidered work: The virgins her companions that follow her Shall be brought unto thee.  

 

 


15


 

  With gladness and rejoicing shall they be led: They shall enter into the king's palace.  

 

 


16


 

  Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, Whom thou shalt make princes in all the earth.  

 

 


17


 

  I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: Therefore shall the peoples give thee thanks for ever and ever.
