Psalm 45To the chief singer, on trumpets, for the sons of Qoraḥ. A poetic love song
1 My heart is overflowing with a good word; I address my works to the Sovereign; My tongue is the pen of a speedy writer.
2 You are more handsome than the sons of men; Favour has been poured upon Your lips; Therefore Elohim has baraḵ You forever.
3 Gird Your sword upon thigh, O Mighty One, Your excellency and Your splendour.
4 And ride prosperously in Your splendour, On the matter of truth and humility, righteousness; And let Your right hand make known reverence.
5 Your arrows are sharp In the heart of the Sovereign’s enemies – Peoples fall under You.
6 Your throne, O Elohim, is forever and ever; The sceptre of Your reign Is a sceptre of straightness.
7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore Elohim, Your Elohim, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
8 All Your garments are myrrh and aloes, cassia; Out of the palaces of ivory, Stringed instruments have made You glad.
9 Daughters of sovereigns are among Your precious ones; At Your right hand stands the sovereigness in gold from Ophir.
10 Listen, O daughter, and see, And incline your ear, And forget your own people and your father’s house;
11 And let the Sovereign delight in your loveliness; Because He is your Master – bow yourself to Him.
12 And the daughter of Tsor with a gift, The rich among the people seek your favour.
13 The daughter of the Sovereign Is all esteemed within; Her dress is embroidered with gold.
14 She is brought to the Sovereign in embroidered work; Maidens, her companions following her, Are brought to You.
15 They are brought with gladness and rejoicing; They enter the Sovereign’s palace.
16 Instead of Your fathers are Your sons, Whom You appoint princes in all the earth.
17 I cause Your Name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people praise You forever and ever.
