Psalms 451 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; ▼
▼ 2I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. ▼

▼ 1) Or upon3 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 ▼
▼ 2thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. ▼
▼ 1) Or In behalf of 2) Or let thy right hand teach5 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or Thy throne is the throne of God etc7 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or in the inner part of the palace14 She shall be led unto the king ▼ in broidered work: The virgins her companions that follow her Shall be brought unto thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or upon15 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.
