Psalms


045:001 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.
045:002 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
045:003 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
045:004 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
045:005 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.
045:006 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
045:007 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
045:008 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
045:009 Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
045:010 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;
045:011 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
045:012 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
045:013 The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.
045:014 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
045:015 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.
045:016 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
045:017 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
