Psalms 45 [Commentary] [Map] |
||For the choir director; according to the Shoshannim. A Maskil of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love. My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
||You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
||Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
||And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
||Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King's enemies.
||Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
||You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
||All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
||Kings' daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
||Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear:
Forget your people and your father's house;
||Then the King will desire your beauty.
Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.
||The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
The rich among the people will seek your favor.
||The King's daughter is all glorious within;
Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
||She will be led to the King in embroidered work;
The virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.
||They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
They will enter into the King's palace.
||In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth.
||I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
