To the Heavenly Worship Leader upon Shoshannim [Lilies], for the sons of Korakh [Bald], Maskhil [a contemplative poem], A Song of loves.
1My heart is indicting a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue [is] the pen of a ready writer.
2youi are fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into youri lips: therefore God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] has Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) youi forever.
3Gird youri sword upon [youri] thigh, O [most] mighty, with youri glory and youri majesty.
4And in youri majesty ride prosperously because of tand meekness [and] righteousness; and youri right hand shall teach youi terrible things.
5You2s arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; [whereby] the people fall under youi.
6Your1s throne, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], [is] forever and ever: the scepter of youri kingdom [is] a right scepter.
7youri love righteousness, and hates wickedness: therefore God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], youri God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], has anointed youi with the oil of gladness above youri fellows.
8All youri garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made youi glad.
9Kings’ daughters [were] among youri honourable women: upon youri right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ofir [reducing to ashes].
10Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline youri ear; forget also youri own people, and youri father’s house;
11So shall the king greatly desire youri beauty: for he [is] youri Lord-Adon [Lord of the Earth]; and worship youi him.
12And the daughter of Tzor [A Rock] (Tyre) [shall be there] with a gift; [even] the rich among the people shall intreat youri favour.
13The king’s daughter [is] all glorious within: her clothing [is] of wrought gold.
14She shall be brought unto the king in clothing of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto youi.
15With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.
16Instead of youri fathers shall be youri children, whom youi may make princes in all the earth.
17I will make youri name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise youi forever and ever.
