Psalm 45 (WEBP)

[1] My heart overflows with a noble theme. I recite my verses for the king. My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer.
[2] You are the most excellent of the sons of men. Grace has anointed your lips, therefore God has blessed you forever.
[3] Strap your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, in your splendor and your majesty.
[4] In your majesty ride on victoriously on behalf of truth, humility, and righteousness. Let your right hand display awesome deeds.
[5] Your arrows are sharp. The nations fall under you, with arrows in the heart of the king’s enemies.
[6] Your throne, God, is forever and ever. A scepter of equity is the scepter of your kingdom.
[7] You have loved righteousness, and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
[8] All your garments smell like myrrh, aloes, and cassia. Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made you glad.
[9] Kings’ daughters are among your honorable women. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.
[10] Listen, daughter, consider, and turn your ear. Forget your own people, and also your father’s house.
[11] So the king will desire your beauty, honor him, for he is your lord.
[12] The daughter of Tyre comes with a gift. The rich among the people entreat your favor.
[13] The princess inside is all glorious. Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
[14] She shall be led to the king in embroidered work. The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to you.
[15] With gladness and rejoicing they shall be led. They shall enter into the king’s palace.
[16] Your sons will take the place of your fathers. You shall make them princes in all the earth.
[17] I will make your name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore the peoples shall give you thanks forever and ever.

Psalm 45 (YLT)

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