Psalms 45

For the end, for alternate strains by the sons of Korah; for instruction, A song concerning the beloved.

1 My heart has uttered a good matter; I declare my works to the king; my tongue is the pen of a quick writer. 2You are more beautiful than the sons of men; grace has been shed forth on Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever. 3Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, in Your comeliness, and in Your beauty; 4and bend Your bow, and prosper, and reign, because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Your right hand shall guide You wonderfully. 5Your weapons are sharpened, O Mighty One, (the nations shall fall under You) they are in the heart of the king's enemies. 6Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; the scepter of Your kingdom is the scepter of righteousness. 7You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness beyond Your companions. 8Myrrh, aloes, and cassia emanate from Your garments, and out of the ivory palaces, 9with which kings' daughters have gladdened You for Your honor; the queen stood by on Your right hand, clothed in vesture wrought with gold, and arrayed in many colors. 10Hear, O daughter, and see, and incline your ear; forget also your people, and your father's house. 11Because the King has desired your beauty; for He is your Lord. 12And the daughter of Tyre shall adorn Him with gifts; the rich of the people of the land shall supplicate your favor. 13All her glory is that of the daughter of the king of Heshbon, robed in golden fringed garments, 14in embroidered clothing; virgins shall be brought to the king after her; her fellows shall be brought to You. 15They shall be brought with gladness and exaltation; they shall be led into the king's temple. 16Instead of Your fathers children are born to You; You shall make them princes over all the earth. 17They shall make mention of Your name from generation to generation; therefore shall the nations give thanks to You forever, even forever and ever.
