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!
