My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of aa ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men; aGrace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has bblessed You forever.
Gird aYour sword on Your thigh, O bMighty One, In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and ameekness and righteousness; Let Your bright hand teach You awesome things.
Your aarrows are sharp; The bpeoples fall under You; Your arrows are cin the heart of the King's enemies.
aYour throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of buprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have aloved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has banointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with amyrrh and aloes and cassia; Out of ivory palaces bstringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings' daughters are among aYour noble ladies; At Your bright hand stands the queen in cgold from Ophir.
Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear: aForget your people and your father's house;
Then the King will desire your beauty. Because He is your aLord, bbow down to Him.
The daughter of aTyre will come with a gift; The brich among the people will seek your favor.
The King's daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is ainterwoven with gold.
She will be aled to the King bin embroidered work; The cvirgins, her companions who follow her, Will be brought to You.
They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing; They will enter into the King's palace.
In place of your fathers will be your sons; You shall make them princes in all the earth.
I will cause aYour name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the peoples bwill give You thanks forever and ever.
