To the choir director: according to Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. A Maschil; a song of love

Ps 45:1My heart overflows with a good matter; / I speak what I have composed concerning the King. / My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

Ps 45:2You are fairer than the sons of men; / Grace is poured upon Your lips; / Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Ps 45:3Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O mighty One, / In Your majesty and Your splendor.

Ps 45:4And in Your splendor ride on victoriously / Because of truth and meekness and righteousness; / And let Your right hand teach You awesome deeds.

Ps 45:5Your arrows are sharp: / The peoples fall under You; / The arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Ps 45:6Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; / The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

Ps 45:7You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; / Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You / With the oil of gladness above Your companions.

Ps 45:8All Your garments smell of myrrh and aloes, of cassia; / From palaces of ivory, harpstrings have made You glad.

Ps 45:9The daughters of kings are among Your most prized; / The queen stands at Your right hand in the gold of Ophir.

Ps 45:10Hear, O daughter, and see; and incline your ear; / And forget your people and your father’s house;

Ps 45:11Thus the King will desire your beauty. / Because He is your Lord, / Worship Him.

Ps 45:12And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; / The rich among the people will entreat your favor.

Ps 45:13The king’s daughter is all glorious within the royal abode; / Her garment is a woven work inwrought with gold.

Ps 45:14She will be led to the King in embroidered clothing; / The virgins behind her, her companions, / Will be brought to You.

Ps 45:15They will be led with rejoicing and exultation; / They will enter the King’s palace.

Ps 45:16In the place of Your fathers will be Your sons; / You will make them princes in all the earth.

Ps 45:17I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations; / Therefore the peoples will praise You forever and ever.
