A Song Celebrating the King’s Marriage.

For the choir director; according to the Shoshannim. A Maskil of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.

1 My heart 1overflows with a good theme;

I 2address my 3verses to the 4King;

My tongue is the pen of aa ready writer.

2 You are fairer than the sons of men;

aGrace is poured 1upon Your lips;

Therefore God has bblessed You forever.

3 Gird aYour sword on Your thigh, O 1bMighty One,

In Your splendor and Your majesty!

4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,

For the cause of truth and ameekness and righteousness;

Let Your bright hand teach You 1awesome things.

5 Your aarrows are sharp;

The bpeoples fall under You;

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

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

A scepter of buprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

7 You have aloved righteousness and hated wickedness;

Therefore God, Your God, has banointed You

With the oil of joy above Your fellows.

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

Out of ivory palaces bstringed instruments have made You glad.

9 Kings’ daughters are among aYour noble ladies;

At Your bright hand stands the queen in cgold from Ophir.

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

aForget your people and your father’s house;

11 Then the King will desire your beauty.

Because He is your aLord, bbow down to Him.

12 The daughter of aTyre will come with a gift;

The brich among the people will seek your favor.

13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within;

Her clothing is ainterwoven with gold.

14 She will be aled to the King bin embroidered work;

The cvirgins, her companions who follow her,

Will be brought to You.

15 They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;

They will enter into the King’s palace.

16 In place of your fathers will be your sons;

You shall make them princes in all the earth.

17 I will cause aYour name to be remembered in all generations;

Therefore the peoples bwill give You thanks forever and ever.
