Psalm 45:9-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

With myrrh, aloes, and cassia
    your robes are fragrant.
From ivory-paneled palaces[a]
    stringed instruments bring you joy.
10 Daughters of kings are your lovely wives;
    a princess arrayed in Ophir’s gold[b]
    comes to stand at your right hand.


  1. 45:9 Ivory-paneled palaces: lit., “palaces of ivory.” Ivory paneling and furniture decoration have been found in Samaria and other ancient Near Eastern cities, cf. Am 3:15.
  2. 45:10 Ophir’s gold: uncertain location, possibly a region on the coast of southern Arabia or eastern Africa, famous for its gold, cf. 1 Kgs 9:28; 10:11; Jb 22:24.
