Psalm 45
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Your Throne, O God, Is Forever

For the choir director. According to [†]Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. A [†]Maskil. A Song of Love.

1My heart [†]overflows with a good theme;

I [†]address my [†]verses to the [†]King;

My tongue is the pen of a skillful scribe.

2You are fairer than the sons of men;

Grace is poured [†]upon Your lips;

Therefore God has blessed You forever.

3Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O [†]Mighty One,

In Your splendor and Your majesty!

4And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,

For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;

Let Your right hand teach You [†]awesome things.

5Your arrows are sharp;

The peoples fall under You;

Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

6Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;

A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

7You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;

Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You

With the oil of joy above Your companions.

8All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;

Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.

9Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;

At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.

10Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear:

Forget your people and your father’s house;

11Then the King will desire your beauty.

Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.

12The daughter of Tyre will come with a present;

The rich among the people will seek your favor.

13The King’s daughter is all glorious within her chamber;

Her clothing is interwoven with gold.

14She will be led to the King in embroidered work;

The virgins, her companions who follow her,

Will be brought to You.

15They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;

They will enter into the King’s palace.

16In place of your fathers will be your sons;

You shall set them up as princes in all the earth.

17I will cause Your name to be remembered from generation to every generation;

Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
