A Song Celebrating the King's Marriage.

1 My heart aoverflows with a good theme; I baddress my cverses to the dKing; My tongue is the pen of 1a ready writer. 2 You are fairer than the sons of men; 2Grace is poured eupon Your lips; Therefore God has 3blessed You forever. 3 Gird 4Your sword on Your thigh, O f5Mighty One, In Your splendor and Your majesty! 4 And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and 6meekness and righteousness; Let Your 7right hand teach You gawesome things. 5 Your 8arrows are sharp; The 9peoples fall under You; Your arrows are 10in the heart of the King's enemies. 6 11Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of 12uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 7 You have 13loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has 14anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows. 8 All Your garments are fragrant with 15myrrh and aloes and cassia; Out of ivory palaces 16stringed instruments have made You glad. 9 Kings' daughters are among 17Your noble ladies; At Your 18right hand stands the queen in 19gold from Ophir. 10 Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear: 20Forget your people and your father's house; 11 Then the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your 21Lord, 22bow down to Him. 12 The daughter of 23Tyre will come with a gift; The 24rich among the people will seek your favor. 13 The King's daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is 25interwoven with gold. 14 She will be 26led to the King 27in embroidered work; The 28virgins, 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 29Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the peoples 30will give You thanks forever and ever.
