Psalm 45

A Song Celebrating the King's Marriage.

For the choir director; according to the Shoshannim [fn]. A Maskil [fn] of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.

1 My heart overflows [fn] with a good theme; I address [fn] my verses [fn] to the King [fn]; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon [fn] Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.

3 Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty [fn] One, In Your splendor and Your majesty!
4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; Let Your right hand teach You awesome [fn] things.
5 Your arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under You; Your arrows are in the heart of the King's enemies.

6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
8 All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
9 Kings' daughters are among Your noble ladies; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.

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

13 The King's daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
14 She will be led to the King in embroidered work; The 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 Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
