1 Overflowed hath my heart, with an excellent theme, I will recite my poem concerning the king, Be, my tongue, like the pen of a scribe who is skilled. 2 Most beautiful thou art, beyond the sons of men, Graciousness hath been poured forth by thy lips, For this cause, hath God blessed thee, to times age-abiding.
3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, -- Tis thine honour and thy majesty; 4 And, in thy majesty, be successful! ride forth! on behalf of faithfulness, and humility - righteousness, And let thine own right hand show thee wonderful things. 5 Thine arrows, are sharp - Peoples, under thee, fall! In the heart of the foes of the king.
6 Thy throne, O God, is to times age-abiding and beyond, A sceptre of equity, is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 7 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated lawlessness, - For this cause, hath God, thine own God, anointed thee, With the oil of gladness, beyond thy partners. 8 Myrrh and aloes, cassias, all thy garments, - Out of the palaces of ivory, the tones of strings, have rejoiced thee. 9 Daughters of kings, are among thine honourable women, Stationed is the bride at thy right hand, in gold of Ophir.
10 Hearken, O daughter, and observe, Incline also thine ear, Forget, then, thine own people, And the house of thy father; 11 When the king shall desire thy beauty, Surely, he, is thy lord, then bow down to him. 12 Also, the daughter of Tyre, cometh in with a present! Thy face, shall the rich of the people appease.
13 All glorious - the daughter of a king sitteth within, Brocades, wrought with gold, are her clothing! 14 In embroidered raiment, shall she be brought unto the king - The virgins that follow her, her companions, are to be conducted unto thee: 15 They shall be brought, with rejoicings and exultation, - They shall enter into the palace of the king!
16 Instead of thy fathers, be thy sons, Thou shalt make them rulers in all the earth. 17 I will keep in remembrance thy Name, through each succeeding generation, For this cause, peoples, shall praise thee, to times age-abiding and beyond.
