Gird thy sword . . . O most mighty.--Or, perhaps, Gird on thy sword in hero guise; or, Gird on thy hero's sword. The object of the poet's praise is as heroic in war as he is beautiful in person.
With thy glory and thy majesty.--This adverbial use of the accusatives may be right, but it seems better to take them in apposition with sword. His weapon was the monarch's glory and pride. Some commentators see here a reference to the custom of girding on the sword said to be still observed at the elevation to the throne of a Persian or Ottoman prince. But the next verse shows that we have rather an ideal picture of the royal bridegroom's prowess in war.Verse 3. - Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty; i.e. array thyself as a warrior, for thou wilt have enemies to conquer, and wilt need a sword against them (see vers. 4, 5). With thy glory and thy majesty. There is no "with" in the original. Some think his sword is called Messiah's "glory and majesty." Others supply "put on," as implied in the "gird" of the first clause, and translate, "Put on thy glory and thy majesty;" i.e. show thyself in all the majesty and glory that naturally belong to thee. This is quite in accordance with the context.
