Psalms 45

1My heart overflows with a good matter. I speak the things which I have made concerning the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2Thou are fairer than the sons of men. Grace is poured into thy lips. Therefore God has blessed thee forever. 3Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, thy glory and thy majesty. 4And in thy majesty ride on prosperously because of truth and gentleness and righteousness. And thy right hand shall teach thee awesome things. 5Thine arrows are sharp. The peoples fall under thee. They are in the heart of the king's enemies. 6Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever. A scepter of straightness is the scepter of thy kingdom. 7Thou have loved righteousness, and hated wickedness. Therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions. 8All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia. Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad. 9Kings' daughters are among thy honorable women. At thy right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir. 10Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear. Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house. 11So will the king desire thy beauty, for he is thy lord, and reverence thou him. 12And the daughter of Tyre shall adore him with a gift. The rich among the people shall entreat thy favor. 13Inside, the king's daughter is all glorious. Her clothing is embroidered with gold. 14She shall be led to the king in broidered work. The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to thee. 15With gladness and rejoicing they shall be led. They shall enter into the king's palace. 16Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons, whom thou shall make rulers in all the earth. 17I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore the peoples shall give thee thanks forever and ever.
