Psalms 45


The Beauty of the Warrior

To the director; for the changings; to the sons of Korah; for contemplation; an ode for the beloved.

[2discharged forth 1My heart 4word 3a good]. I speak of my works to the king. My tongue is a reed pen of a scribe writing fast. More beautiful in beauty than the sons of men. [2was poured out 1Favor] on your lips. On account of this [2blessed 3you 1God] into the eon. Gird your broadsword upon your thigh! O mighty one, in your beauty. And in your fineness, even stretch tight your bow, and greatly prosper, and reign! Because of truth, and gentleness, and righteousness even shall [2guide 3you 4wonderfully 1your right hand]. Your arrows are being sharpened, O mighty one. Peoples [2underneath 3you 1shall fall] in the heart of the enemies of the king. Your throne, O God, is unto the eon of the eon. A rod of straightness is the rod of your kingdom. You loved righteousness, and detested lawlessness; on account of this [3anointed 4you 1God 2your God] with oil of exultation beyond your fellow partakers. Myrrh, and balsam, and cassia of your garments from palaces of ivory, from of which [3gladdened 4you 1the daughters 2of kings] in your honor. [3stood 1The 2queen] at your right [2in 3clothes 5interwoven with gold 1having put around 4being embroidered]. 10 Hear, O daughter, and behold! And lean your ear, and forget your people, and the house of your father! 11 Even [3desired 1the 2king] your beauty; for he is your lord, and you shall do obeisance to him. 12 And the daughter of Tyre shall come with gifts. [6your face 5will implore 1The 2rich 3of the 4people]. 13 All the glory of the daughter of the king within, with bordered fringes of gold, 14 being put around, being embroidered. [2shall be carried 3to the 4king 1The virgins] after her; the ones near her shall be carried to you. 15 They shall be carried in gladness and exultation; they shall be led into the temple of the king. 16 In place of your fathers, [2were born 1your sons]. You shall place them as rulers over all the earth. 17 I will make [2remembered 1your name] in every generation, and generation. On account of this peoples will make acknowledgment to you into the eon, and into the eon of the eon.
