My heart is overflowing with a good word; I speak of the things which I have done concerning the king; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
Thou art fairer than the sons of men, grace is poured into thy lips; therefore God has blessed thee for ever.
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most valiant, with thy glory and thy majesty.
And in thy majesty be prospered; ride upon the word of truth and of humility and of righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
Thine arrows, by which the peoples fall under thee, penetrate the heart of the enemies of the king.
Thy throne, O God, is eternal and for ever, the rod of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness; therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
All thy garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made thee glad.
Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women; the queen stands at thy right hand with a crown of gold from Ophir.
Hearken, O daughter, and consider and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;
so shall the king greatly desire thy beauty; and bow before him, for he is thy Lord.
And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.
She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework; the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king’s palace.
Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons, whom thou shalt make princes in all the earth.
I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations; therefore shall the people praise thee eternally and for ever.
