Psalms 45

1 My heart is gushing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2 You are fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into your lips: therefore God has blessed you for ever.

3 Gird your sword on your thigh, O most mighty, with your glory and your majesty.

4 And in your majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and your right hand shall teach you terrible things.

5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king' enemies; whereby the people fall under you.

6 Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the scepter of your kingdom is a right scepter.

7 You love righteousness, and hate wickedness: therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.

8 All your garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made you glad.

9 Kings'daughters were among your honorable women: on your right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10 Listen, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear; forget also your own people, and your father' house;

11 So shall the king greatly desire your beauty: for he is your Lord; and worship you him.

12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall entreat your favor.

13 The king' daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of worked gold.

14 She shall be brought to the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought to you.

15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king' palace.

16 Instead of your fathers shall be your children, whom you may make princes in all the earth.

17 I will make your name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise you for ever and ever.
