In your majesty ride forth victoriously for the cause of truth and to defend the right; let your right hand teach you dread deeds!
Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you.
Your divine throne endures for ever and ever. Your royal scepter is a scepter of equity;
you love righteousness and hate wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows;
your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia. From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor; at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.
