1 To the Chief Musician. Concerning the Lilies, for the sons of Korah, a contemplation; A Song of Loves. My heart is overflowing [with] a good matter; I speak of my works to the King; my tongue [is] the pen of a ready writer.
2 You are the fairest of the sons of men; grace is poured into Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever.
3 Gird Your sword on [Your] thigh, O mighty one, [with] Your glory and Your majesty.
4 And ride prosperously [in] Your majesty, because of truth and meekness [and] righteousness; and Your right hand shall teach You fearful things.
5 Your arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; peoples fall under You.
6 Your throne, O God, [is] forever and ever; the staff of Your kingdom [is] a staff of righteousness.
7 You love righteousness, and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your fellows.
8 All Your garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes [and] cassia, out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
9 Kings' daughters [are] among Your precious ones; on Your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.
10 Listen, O daughter, and look; and bow down your ear; and forget your own people and your father's house.
11 And cause the King greatly to desire your beauty, for He [is] your Lord, and you shall worship Him.
12 And the daughter of Tyre [shall be there] with a gift; even the rich among the peoples shall stroke your face.
13 The king's daughter [is] all glorious within; her clothing [is] trimmed with gold.
14 She shall be brought to the king in clothing of needlework; the virgins, her companions after her, shall be brought to You.
15 They shall be led with joy and gladness; they shall enter into the King's palace.
16 Your sons shall be in the place of your fathers; you will make them princes in all the land.
17 I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.
