1My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
The Glories of the Messiah and His BrideTo the Chief Musician. ⚓Set to “The Lilies.” A Contemplation of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2You are fairer than the sons of men;
⚓Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3Gird Your ⚓sword upon Your thigh, ⚓O Mighty One,
With Your ⚓glory and Your majesty.
4⚓And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness;
And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things.
5Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies;
The peoples fall under You.
6⚓Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A ⚓scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has ⚓anointed You
With the oil of ⚓gladness more than Your companions.
8All Your garments are⚓scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia,
Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
9⚓Kings’ daughters are among Your honorable women;
⚓At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10Listen, O daughter,
Consider and incline your ear;
⚓Forget your own people also, and your father’s house;
11So the King will greatly desire your beauty;
⚓Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
12And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
⚓The rich among the people will seek your favor.
13The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;
Her clothing is woven with gold.
14⚓She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors;
The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.
15With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought;
They shall enter the King’s palace.
16Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons,
⚓Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
17⚓I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.
