Chapter 45

1

 To the chief music-maker; put to Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. Maschil. A Song of loves.
My heart is flowing over with good things; my words are of that which I have made for a king; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 


2

 You are fairer than the children of men; grace is flowing through your lips; for this cause the blessing of God is with you for ever. 


3

 Put on your sword, make it ready at your side, O strong chief, with your glory and power. 


4

 And go nobly on in your power, because you are good and true and without pride; and your right hand will be teaching you things of fear. 


5

 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's haters; because of them the peoples are falling under you. 


6

 Your seat of power, O God, is for ever and ever; the rod of your kingdom is a rod of honour. 


7

 You have been a lover of righteousness and a hater of evil: and so God, your God, has put the oil of joy on your head, lifting you high over all other kings. 


8

 Your robes are full of the smell of all sorts of perfumes and spices; music from the king's ivory houses has made you glad. 


9

 Kings' daughters are among your noble women: on your right is the queen in gold of Ophir. 


10

 O daughter, give thought and attention, and let your ear be open; no longer keep in mind your people, and your father's house; 


11

 So will the king have a great desire for you, seeing how beautiful you are; because he is your lord, give him honour. 


12

 And the daughters of Tyre will be there with an offering; those who have wealth among the people will be looking for your approval. 


13

 In the great house the king's daughter is all shining: her clothing is worked with gold. 


14

 She will come before the king in robes of needlework; the virgins in her train will come before you. 


15

 With joy and rapture will they come; they will go into the king's house. 


16

 Your children will take the place of your fathers; so that you may make them rulers over all the earth. 


17

 I will keep the memory of your name living through all generations; and because of this the people will give you praise for ever.
