Psalm 45
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [SET] ON “LILIES.” AN INSTRUCTION OF THE SONS OF KORAH. A SONG OF LOVES. My heart has stirred a good word, || I am telling my works to the King, || My tongue [is] the pen of a speedy writer.

2You have been beautified above the sons of men, || Grace has been poured into Your lips, || Therefore God has blessed You for all time.

3Gird Your sword on the thigh, O Mighty [One], || Your splendor and Your majesty!

4As for Your majesty—prosper [and] ride! Because of truth, meekness, [and] righteousness, || And Your right hand shows You fearful things.

5Your arrows [are] sharp—Peoples fall under You—In the heart of the enemies of the King.

6Your throne, O God, [is] for all time and forever, || A scepter of uprightness || [Is] the scepter of Your kingdom.

7You have loved righteousness and hate wickedness, || Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You || With oil of joy above Your companions.

8Myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia || [Cover] all Your garments; Out of palaces of ivory, || Stringed instruments have made You glad.

9Daughters of kings [are] among Your precious ones, || A queen has stood at Your right hand, || In pure gold of Ophir.

10Listen, O daughter, and see, incline your ear, || And forget your people, and your father’s house,

11And the King desires your beauty, || Because He [is] your Lord—bow yourself to Him,

12And the daughter of Tyre with a present, || The rich of the people appease your face.

13All glory [is] the daughter of the king within, || Her clothing [is] with filigrees of gold.

14In various colors she is brought to the King; Afterward, virgins, her companions, || Are brought to You.

15They are brought with joy and gladness, || They come into the palace of the King.

16Instead of Your fathers are Your sons, || You appoint them for princes in all the earth.

17I make mention of Your Name in all generations, || Therefore peoples praise You, || For all time and forever!
