A Song for the King's Marriage
To the chief Musician upon Shoshan'nim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.

1  My heart is inditing a good matter:
        
I speak of the things which I have made touching the King:
my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2  Thou art fairer than the children of men:
        
grace is poured into thy lips:
therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
3  Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most Mighty,
        
with thy glory and thy majesty.
4  And in thy majesty ride prosperously,
        
because of truth and meekness and righteousness;
and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
5  Thine arrows are sharp
        
in the heart of the King's enemies;
whereby the people fall under thee.
6  Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever:
        
the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
7  Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness:
        
therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee
with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Heb. 1.8, 9
8  All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia,
        
out of the ivory palaces,
whereby they have made thee glad.
9  Kings' daughters were among thy honorable women:
        
upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
10  Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear;
        
forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
11  so shall the King greatly desire thy beauty:
        
for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
12  And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift;
        
even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favor.
13  The King's daughter is all glorious within:
        
her clothing is of wrought gold.
14  She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework:
        
the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
15  With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought:
        
they shall enter into the King's palace.
16  Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children,
        
whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
17  I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations:
        
therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
