1 To the overseer over the lilies, for the sons of Korah, instruction: a song of the beloved. My heart boiled over a good word: I say my works to the king: my tongue the pen of one writing promptly. 2 Thou wert very beautiful above the sons of man: grace was poured forth by thy lips: for this God praised thee forever.
3 Gird thy sword upon the thigh, thou strong one in thy majesty and thine honor. 4 And in thy splendor prosper thou riding upon the word of truth and humility, of justice; and thy right hand shall teach thee wonderfully. 5 Thine arrows being sharpened peoples shall fall under thee as the heart of the king's enemies.
6 Thy throne, O God, forever and ever: a rod of straightness the rod of thy kingdom. 7 Thou lovedst justice, and thou wilt hate injustice: for this, God thy God anointed thee with the oil of joy above thy companions. 8 Myrrh and aloes, cassia, all thy garments, from the temples of ivory, by which they gladdened thee. 9 King's daughters among thy beautiful ones: the queen stood at thy right hand, in gold of Ophir.
10 Hear, O daughter, and see, and incline thine ear, and forget thy people and thy father's house; 11 And the king shall desire for himself thy beauty, for he is thy Lord; and worship thou to him. 12 And the daughter of the rock with a gift; and the rich of the people shall supplicate thy face.
13 All glory the king's daughter, in front: her clothing textures of gold. 14 With variegation she shall be brought to the King; the virgins after her, her companions, being brought to thee. 15 They shall be brought with gladness and joy: they shall come into the temple of the king.
16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons; thou shalt set them for chiefs in all the earth. 17 I will cause thy name to be remembered in every generation and generation: for this the peoples shall praise thee forever and ever.
