My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.
You are the most excellent of men and your lips have been anointed with grace,1 since God has blessed you forever.23
Gird your sword3 upon your side, O mighty one;4 clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.54
In your majesty ride forth victoriously6 in behalf of truth, humility and righteousness;7 let your right hand8 display awesome deeds.95
Let your sharp arrows10 pierce the hearts11 of the king's enemies;12 let the nations fall beneath your feet.
