Psalm 45

Your Throne, O God, Is Forever

1 My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a 1 ready writer.

2 You are fairer than the sons of men;
a Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 2 Gird Your b sword upon Your thigh, c O Mighty One,
With Your glory and Your majesty.

4 e And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness;
And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things.
5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies;
The peoples fall under You.

6 f Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A g scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has h anointed You
With the oil of i gladness more than Your companions.
8 All Your garments are j scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia,
Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
9 k Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women;
l At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.

10 Listen, O daughter,
Consider and incline your ear;
m Forget your own people also, and your father's house;
11 So the King will greatly desire your beauty;
n Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
12 And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
o The rich among the people will seek your favor.

13 The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;
Her clothing is woven with gold.
14 p She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors;
The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.
15 With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought;
They shall enter the King's palace.

16 Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons,
q Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
17 r I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.
