Parallel
45
1My heart is overflowing with a goodly word; I address my works to the Sovereign; My tongue is the pen of a speedy writer.
2You are more handsome than the sons of men; Favour has been poured upon Your lips; Therefore Elohim has blessed You forever.
3Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, Your excellency and Your splendour.
4And ride prosperously in Your splendour, On the matter of truth and humility, righteousness; And let Your right hand lead You to awesome matters.
5Your arrows are sharp In the heart of the Sovereign’s enemies – Peoples fall under You.
6Your throne, O Elohim, is forever and ever; The sceptre of Your reign Is a sceptre of straightness.
7You have loved righteousness and hated wrongness;#Quoted in Heb. 1:8, 9 where the Greek text has lawlessness instead of wrongness. Therefore Elohim, Your Elohim, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
8All Your garments are myrrh and aloes, cassia; Out of the palaces of ivory, Stringed instruments have made You glad.
9Daughters of sovereigns are among Your precious ones; At Your right hand stands the sovereigness in gold from Ophir.
10Listen, O daughter, and see, And incline your ear, And forget your own people and your father’s house;
11And let the Sovereign delight in your loveliness; Because He is your Master – bow yourself to Him.
12And the daughter of Tsor with a gift, The rich among the people seek your favour.
13The daughter of the Sovereign Is all esteemed within the palace; Her dress is embroidered with gold.
14She is brought to the Sovereign in embroidered work; Maidens, her companions following her, Are brought to You.
15They are brought with gladness and rejoicing; They enter the Sovereign’s palace.
16Instead of Your fathers are Your sons, Whom You appoint princes in all the earth.
17I cause Your Name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people praise You forever and ever.
