Psalm 45
New American Standard Bible Par ▾ 
A Song Celebrating the King’s Marriage.

For the choir director; according to the Shoshannim. A Maskil of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.

1My heart overflows with a good theme;
            I address my verses to the King;
            My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

      2You are fairer than the sons of men;
            Grace is poured upon Your lips;
            Therefore God has blessed You forever.

      3Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
            In Your splendor and Your majesty!

      4And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
            For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
            Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.

      5Your arrows are sharp;
            The peoples fall under You;
            Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

      6Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
            A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

      7You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
            Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
            With the oil of joy above Your fellows.

      8All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
            Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.

      9Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
            At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.

      10Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear:
            Forget your people and your father’s house;

      11Then the King will desire your beauty.
            Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.

      12The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
            The rich among the people will seek your favor.

      13The King’s daughter is all glorious within;
            Her clothing is interwoven with gold.

      14She will be led to the King in embroidered work;
            The virgins, her companions who follow her,
            Will be brought to You.

      15They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
            They will enter into the King’s palace.

      16In place of your fathers will be your sons;
            You shall make them princes in all the earth.

      17I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations;
            Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
