Psalms 45


 

My heart overflows with a noble theme

The majesty and grace of Christ's kingdom

1 [45:2] My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2 [45:3] Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. 3 [45:4] Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. 4 [45:5] And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 5 [45:6] Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee. 6 [45:7] Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. 7 [45:8] Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 8 [45:9] All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad. 9 [45:10] Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

The duty of the church, and the benefits thereof

10 [45:11] Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house; 11 [45:12] So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him. 12 [45:13] And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour. 13 [45:14] The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. 14 [45:15] She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. 15 [45:16] With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace. 16 [45:17] Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth. 17 [45:18] I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
