1 My heart overflows with a good matter; I speak what I have composed concerning the King. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O mighty One, In Your majesty and Your splendor.
4 And in Your splendor ride on victoriously Because of truth and meekness and righteousness; And let Your right hand teach You awesome deeds.
5 Your arrows are sharp: The peoples fall under You; The arrows are in the heart of the King's enemies.
6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness above Your companions.
8 All Your garments smell of myrrh and aloes, of cassia; From palaces of ivory, harpstrings have made You glad.
9 The daughters of kings are among Your most prized; The queen stands at Your right hand in the gold of Ophir.
10 Hear, O daughter, and see; and incline your ear; And forget your people and your father's house;
11 Thus the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your Lord, Worship Him.
12 And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will entreat your favor.
13 The King's daughter is all glorious within the royal abode; Her garment is a woven work inwrought with gold.
14 She will be led to the King in embroidered clothing; The virgins behind her, her companions, Will be brought to You.
15 They will be led with rejoicing and exultation; They will enter the King's palace.
16 In the place of Your fathers will be Your sons; You will make them princes in all the earth.
17 I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the peoples will praise You forever and ever.
