Psalms Chapter 45 – Christ and his kingdom described. (To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the son of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.)

1 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 Thou art fairer than the children of men; grace is poured into thy lips; therefore God hath blessed thee forever.


3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most Mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.


4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously, because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.


5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.


6 Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever; the scepter of thy kingdom is a right scepter.


7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.


8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.


9 Kings’ daughters were among thy honorable women; upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.


10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;


11 So shall the King greatly desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.


12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favor.


13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is of wrought gold.


14 She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework; the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.


15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought; they shall enter into the King’s palace.


16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.


17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations; therefore shall the people praise thee forever and ever.
