Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one; clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
King James Bible
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
American Standard Version
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, Thy glory and thy majesty.
Young's Literal Translation
Gird Thy sword upon the thigh, O mighty, Thy glory and Thy majesty!
Psalm 45:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty - This clause should be translated, O hero, gird thy sword upon thy thigh! This, I think, cannot be spoken of Solomon. He was not a warlike prince: he never did any feats of arms. It has been said he would have been a warrior, if he had had enemies; it might have been so: but the words more properly apply to Christ, who is King of kings, and Lord of lords; whose sword with two edges, proceeding from his mouth, cuts all his adversaries to pieces.
With thy glory and thy majesty - Be as war-like as thou art glorious and majestic. Solomon's court was splendid, and his person was majestic. These words may be well said of him. But the majesty and glory of Christ are above all: he is higher than all the kings of the earth; and has a name above every name; and at it every knee shall bend, and every tongue confess.
