My tongue is the pen of g  a ready writer.
2You are fairer than the sons of men;
h  Grace is poured

upon Your lips;
Therefore God has j  blessed You forever.

3Gird k  Your sword on Your thigh, O
Or warrior
m  Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
4And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and n  meekness and righteousness;
Let Your o  right hand teach You

5Your q  arrows are sharp;
The r  peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are s  in the heart of the King’s enemies.

A scepter of u  uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7You have v  loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has w  anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
8All Your garments are fragrant with x  myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces y  stringed instruments have made You glad.
9Kings’ daughters are among z  Your noble ladies;
At Your aa  right hand stands the queen in ab  gold from Ophir.

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

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

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