Chapter 45

1

 

 {To the chief Musician. Upon Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. An instruction; -- a song of the Beloved.} My heart is welling forth [with] a good matter: I say what I have composed touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 

 

 


2

 

 Thou art fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. 

 

 


3

 

 Gird thy sword upon [thy] thigh, O mighty one, [in] thy majesty and thy splendour; 

 

 


4

 

 And [in] thy splendour ride prosperously, because of truth and meekness [and] righteousness: and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 

 

 


5

 

 Thine arrows are sharp -- peoples fall under thee -- in the heart of the king's enemies. 

 

 


6

 

 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a sceptre of uprightness is the sceptre of thy kingdom: 

 

 


7

 

 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions. 

 

 


8

 

 Myrrh and aloes, cassia, are all thy garments; out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad. 

 

 


9

 

 Kings' daughters are among thine honourable women; upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir. 

 

 


10

 

 Hearken, daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; and forget thine own people and thy father's house: 

 

 


11

 

 And the king will desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord, and worship thou him. 

 

 


12

 

 And the daughter of Tyre with a gift, the rich ones among the people, shall court thy favour. 

 

 


13

 

 All glorious is the king's daughter within; her clothing is of wrought gold: 

 

 


14

 

 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of embroidery; the virgins behind her, her companions, shall be brought in unto thee: 

 

 


15

 

 With joy and gladness shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace. 

 

 


16

 

 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons; princes shalt thou make them in all the earth. 

 

 


17

 

 I will make thy name to be remembered throughout all generations; therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever.
