Psalms 45

1The majesty and grace of Christ's kingdom. 10The duty of the church, and the benefits thereof.

0 To the chief Musician upon aShoshannim, for the sons of Korah, 1Maschil, A Song bof loves.

1 MY heart 2is *inditing a cgood matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching dthe king: my tongue is the pen of ea ready writer.

2 Thou fart fairer than the children of men: ggrace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath hblessed thee for ever.

3 *Gird thy isword upon thy thigh, O most jmighty, with thy kglory and thy majesty.

4 And in thy majesty 3ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and lthy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5 Thine marrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

6 Thy nthrone, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

7 Thou olovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, pthy God, hath qanointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

8 All rthy garments smell of smyrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the tivory palaces, whereby uthey have made thee glad.

9 vKings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand wthe queen in xgold of Ophir.

10 yHearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; zforget also thine own people, and thy father's house;

11 So ashall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is bthy Lord; and worship thou him.

12 And cthe daughter of Tyre shall be there with da gift; even the erich among the people shall intreat thy 4favour.

13 The fking's daughter is gall glorious within: hher clothing is of wrought gold.

14 She ishall be brought unto the king jin *raiment of needlework: the kvirgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

15 With lgladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.

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

17 I nwill make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
