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 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Shoshannim H7799, for the sons H1121 of Korah H7141, Maschil H4905 (8688), A Song H7892 of loves H3039.» My heart H3820 is inditing H7370 (8804) a good H2896 matter H1697: I speak H559 (8802) of the things which I have made H4639 touching the king H4428: my tongue H3956 [is] the pen H5842 of a ready H4106 writer H5608 (8802).
[2] Thou art fairer H3302 (8795) than the children H1121 of men H120: grace H2580 is poured H3332 (8717) into thy lips H8193: therefore God H430 hath blessed H1288 (8765) thee for ever H5769.
[3] Gird H2296 (8798) thy sword H2719 upon [thy] thigh H3409, O [most] mighty H1368, with thy glory H1935 and thy majesty H1926.
[4] And in thy majesty H1926 ride H7392 (8798) prosperously H6743 (8798) because H1697 of truth H571 and meekness H6037 [and] righteousness H6664; and thy right hand H3225 shall teach H3384 (8686) thee terrible things H3372 (8737).
[5] Thine arrows H2671 [are] sharp H8150 (8802) in the heart H3820 of the king’s H4428 enemies H341 (8802); [whereby] the people H5971 fall H5307 (8799) under thee.
[6] Thy throne H3678, O God H430, [is] for ever H5769 and ever H5703: the sceptre H7626 of thy kingdom H4438 [is] a right H4334 sceptre H7626.
[7] Thou lovest H157 (8804) righteousness H6664, and hatest H8130 (8799) wickedness H7562: therefore God H430, thy God H430, hath anointed H4886 (8804) thee with the oil H8081 of gladness H8342 above thy fellows H2270.
[8] All thy garments H899 [smell] of myrrh H4753, and aloes H174, [and] cassia H7102, out of the ivory H8127 palaces H1964, whereby H4482 they have made thee glad H8055 (8765).
[9] Kings H4428’ daughters H1323 [were] among thy honourable women H3368: upon thy right hand H3225 did stand H5324 (8738) the queen H7694 in gold H3800 of Ophir H211.
[10] Hearken H8085 (8798), O daughter H1323, and consider H7200 (8798), and incline H5186 (8685) thine ear H241; forget H7911 (8798) also thine own people H5971, and thy father’s H1 house H1004;
[11] So shall the king H4428 greatly desire H183 (8691) thy beauty H3308: for he [is] thy Lord H113; and worship H7812 (8690) thou him.
[12] And the daughter H1323 of Tyre H6865 [shall be there] with a gift H4503; [even] the rich H6223 among the people H5971 shall intreat H2470 (8762) thy favour H6440.
[13] The king’s H4428 daughter H1323 [is] all glorious H3520 within H6441: her clothing H3830 [is] of wrought H4865 gold H2091.
[14] She shall be brought H2986 (8714) unto the king H4428 in raiment of needlework H7553: the virgins H1330 her companions H7464 that follow H310 her shall be brought H935 (8716) unto thee.
[15] With gladness H8057 and rejoicing H1524 shall they be brought H2986 (8714): they shall enter H935 (8799) into the king’s H4428 palace H1964.
[16] Instead of thy fathers H1 shall be thy children H1121, whom thou mayest make H7896 (8799) princes H8269 in all the earth H776.
[17] I will make thy name H8034 to be remembered H2142 (8686) in all H1755 generations H1755: therefore shall the people H5971 praise H3034 (8686) thee for ever H5769 and ever H5703.

Young’s Literal Translation

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!
