Probably refers to Solomon as a type of Christ
King;
My tongue is the pen of g a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
h Grace is poured
Or through
upon Your lips;
Therefore God has j blessed You forever.

Gird k Your sword on Your thigh, O
Or warrior
,
m Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and n meekness and righteousness;
Let Your o right hand teach You
Or fearful
awesome things.
Your q arrows are sharp;
The r peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are s in the heart of the King’s enemies.

t Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of u uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have v loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has w anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with x myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces y stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among z Your noble ladies;
At Your aa right hand stands the queen in ab gold from Ophir.

10 Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear:
ac Forget your people and your father’s house;
11 Then the King will desire your beauty.
Because He is your ad Lord ae bow down to Him.
12 The daughter of af Tyre will come with a gift;
The ag rich among the people will seek your favor.

13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within;
Her clothing is ah interwoven with gold.
14 She will be ai led to the King aj in embroidered work;
The ak virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.
15 They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
They will enter into the King’s palace.

16 In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth.
17 I will cause al Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples am will give You thanks forever and ever.
