1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17

A Messianic Psalm-Messiah is fairer than the children of men-He is anointed with the oil of gladness above his fellows-His name shall be remembered in all generations.

To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.

 1 My heart is ainditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

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

 3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy aglory and thy majesty.

 4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and arighteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

 5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

 6 Thy athrone, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

 7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of agladness above thy fellows.

 8 All thy garments smell of amyrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

 9 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

 10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;

 11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.

 12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.

 13 The king's daughter is all glorious within: her aclothing is of wrought gold.

 14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

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

 16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

 17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
