Psalm 45

45:1 To the Overseer. --`On the Lilies.' --By sons of Korah. --An Instruction. --A song of loves. My heart hath indited a good thing, I am telling my works to a king, My tongue [is] the pen of a speedy writer. 45:2 Thou hast been beautified above the sons of men, Grace hath been poured into thy lips, Therefore hath God blessed thee to the age. 45:3 Gird Thy sword upon the thigh, O mighty, Thy glory and Thy majesty! 45:4 As to Thy majesty--prosper! --ride! Because of truth, and meekness--righteousness, And Thy right hand showeth Thee fearful things. 45:5 Thine arrows [are] sharp, --Peoples fall under Thee--In the heart of the enemies of the king.  45:6 Thy throne, O God, [is] age-during, and for ever, A sceptre of uprightness [Is] the sceptre of Thy kingdom. 45:7 Thou hast loved righteousness and hatest wickedness, Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee, Oil of joy above thy companions. 45:8 Myrrh and aloes, cassia! all thy garments, Out of palaces of ivory Stringed instruments have made thee glad. 45:9 Daughters of kings [are] among thy precious ones, A queen hath stood at thy right hand, In pure gold of Ophir.  45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and see, incline thine ear, And forget thy people, and thy father's house, 45:11 And the king doth desire thy beauty, Because he [is] thy lord--bow thyself to him, 45:12 And the daughter of Tyre with a present, The rich of the people do appease thy face. 45:13 All glory [is] the daughter of the king within, Of gold-embroidered work [is] her clothing. 45:14 In divers colours she is brought to the king, Virgins--after her--her companions, Are brought to thee. 45:15 They are brought with joy and gladness, They come into the palace of the king. 45:16 Instead of thy fathers are thy sons, Thou dost appoint them for princes in all the earth. 45:17 I make mention of Thy name in all generations, Therefore do peoples praise Thee, To the age, and for ever!
