1: (For the Chief Musician. Set to "The Lilies." A contemplation by the sons of Korah. A wedding song.) My heart overflows with a noble theme. I recite my verses for the king. My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer. 2: You are the most excellent of the sons of men. Grace has anointed your lips, Therefore God has blessed you forever. 3: Gird your sword on your thigh, mighty one, Your splendor and your majesty. 4: In your majesty ride on victoriously on behalf of truth, humility, and righteousness. Let your right hand display awesome deeds. 5: Your arrows are sharp. The nations fall under you, with arrows in the heart of the king's enemies. 6: Your throne, God, is forever and ever. A scepter of equity 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 fellows. 8: All your garments smell like myrrh, aloes, and cassia. Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made you glad. 9: Kings' daughters are among your honorable women. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir. 10: Listen, daughter, consider, and turn your ear. Forget your own people, and also your father's house. 11: So will the king desire your beauty, Honor him, for he is your lord. 12: The daughter of Tyre comes with a gift. The rich among the people entreat your favor. 13: The princess inside is all glorious. Her clothing is interwoven with gold. 14: She shall be led to the king in embroidered work. The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to you. 15: With gladness and rejoicing shall they be led. They shall enter into the king's palace. 16: Your sons will take the place of your fathers. You shall make them princes in all the earth. 17: I will make your name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore the peoples shall give you thanks forever and ever.
