For the music director; according to the [a]Shoshannim. A [b]Maskil of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.
45 My heart is moved with a good theme; I [c]address my [d]verses to the [e]King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2 You are the most handsome of the sons of mankind; Grace is poured [f]upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 Strap Your sword on Your thigh, [g]Mighty One, In Your splendor and majesty! 4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth, humility, and righteousness; Let Your right hand teach You [h]awesome things. 5 Your arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under You; Your arrows arein the heart of the King’s enemies.
6 Your throne, God, is forever and ever; The scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice. 7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your companions. 8 All Your garments are fragrant withmyrrh, aloes, and cassia; From ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You joyful. 9 Kings’ daughters are among Your noble women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10 Listen, daughter, look and incline your ear: Forget your people and your father’s house; 11 Then the King will crave your beauty. Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him. 12 The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The wealthy 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 brought to the King in colorful garments; The virgins, her companions who follow her, Will be brought to You. 15 They will be brought with joy 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 make Your name known among all generations; Therefore the peoples will praise You forever and ever.
