Psalm 45
Through the Bible Day by Day
To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. 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.



Though this psalm was probably composed to celebrate Solomon’s marriage with Pharaoh’s daughter, we must remember that it is distinctly applied to our Lord in Heb_1:8. See also Eph_5:23; Rev_19:7. What wonder that the psalmist’s heart overflowed! It was bubbling up with good matter! His work was for a King! See Psa_45:1, R.V., margin.

The Warrior, Psa_45:2-5. The Word of God rides forth to war, followed by the armies of heaven. See Rev_19:13. His glory is the Cross; His majesty is in His meekness; His prosperity, in His loyalty to truth. His arrows are tipped with love, and those who fall beneath them die that they may live. The King, Psa_45:6-8. The oil of gladness is the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which we also may share. See 1Jn_2:20; 1Jn_2:27. The Bridegroom, Psa_45:9-17. Clad in glistening raiment, the Church stands by her Lord, who claims her love and loyalty. But these are not inconsistent claims! By nature she was without beauty or dower; but she has won both in Him. See to it that you are not missing at that wedding-feast! Mat_7:22-23.
