1. [To the chief Musician. Upon Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. An instruction; -a song of the Beloved.] My heart is welling forth {with} a good matter: I say what I have composed touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2. Thou art fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

3. Gird thy sword upon {thy} thigh, O mighty one, {in} thy majesty and thy splendour;

4. And {in} thy splendour ride prosperously, because of truth and meekness {and} righteousness: and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5. Thine arrows are sharp-peoples fall under thee-in the heart of the king's enemies.

6. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a sceptre of uprightness is the sceptre of thy kingdom:

7. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions.

8. Myrrh and aloes, cassia, are all thy garments; out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.

9. Kings' daughters are among thine honourable women; upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10. Hearken, daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; and forget thine own people and thy father's house:

11. And the king will desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord, and worship thou him.

12. And the daughter of Tyre with a gift, the rich ones among the people, shall court thy favour.

13. All glorious is the king's daughter within; her clothing is of wrought gold:

14. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of embroidery; the virgins behind her, her companions, shall be brought in unto thee:

15. With joy and gladness shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace.

16. Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons; princes shalt thou make them in all the earth.

17. I will make thy name to be remembered throughout all generations; therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever.
