Psalms 45 : 1 - 17
|1||My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.|
|2||You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.|
|3||Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty.|
|4||And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things.|
|5||Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; The peoples fall under You.|
|6||Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.|
|7||You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.|
|8||All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.|
|9||Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.|
|10||Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father's house;|
|11||So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him.|
|12||And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor.|
|13||The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold.|
|14||She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.|
|15||With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King's palace.|
|16||Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.|
|17||I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.|
