The Glories of the Messiah and His Bride
To the Chief Musician. #Ps. 69:titleSet to “The Lilies.” A Contemplation of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.
1My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2You are fairer than the sons of men;
#Luke 4:22Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3Gird Your #(Is. 49:2; Heb. 4:12); Rev. 1:16sword upon Your thigh, #(Is. 9:6)O Mighty One,
With Your #Jude 25glory and Your majesty.
4#Rev. 6:2And 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#(Ps. 93:2); Heb. 1:8, 9Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A #(Num. 24:17)scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has #Ps. 2:2anointed You
With the oil of #Ps. 21:6; Heb. 1:8, 9gladness more than Your companions.
8All Your garments are #Song 1:12, 13scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia,
Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
9#Song 6:8Kings’ daughters are among Your honorable women;
#1 Kin. 2:19At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10Listen, O daughter,
Consider and incline your ear;
#Deut. 21:13; Ruth 1:16, 17Forget your own people also, and your father’s house;
11So the King will greatly desire your beauty;
#Ps. 95:6; (Is. 54:5)Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
12And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
#Is. 49:23The rich among the people will seek your favor.
13The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;
Her clothing is woven with gold.
14#Song 1:4She 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,
#(1 Pet. 2:9; Rev. 1:6; 20:6)Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
17#Mal. 1:11I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.
