Psalm 45

Ode for a Royal Wedding

To the leader: according to Lilies. Of the Korahites. A Maskil. A love song.
1 My heart overflows with a goodly theme;
   I address my verses to the king;
   my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.


2 You are the most handsome of men;
   grace is poured upon your lips;
   therefore God has blessed you for ever.
3 Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one,
   in your glory and majesty.


4 In your majesty ride on victoriously
   for the cause of truth and to defend* the right;
   let your right hand teach you dread deeds.
5 Your arrows are sharp
   in the heart of the king’s enemies;
   the peoples fall under you.


6 Your throne, O God,* endures for ever and ever.
   Your royal sceptre is a sceptre of equity;
7   you love righteousness and hate wickedness.
Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
   with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
8   your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
9   daughters of kings are among your ladies of honour;
   at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.


10 Hear, O daughter, consider and incline your ear;
   forget your people and your father’s house,
11   and the king will desire your beauty.
Since he is your lord, bow to him;
12   the people* of Tyre will seek your favour with gifts,
   the richest of the people 13with all kinds of wealth.


The princess is decked in her chamber with gold-woven robes;*
14   in many-coloured robes she is led to the king;
   behind her the virgins, her companions, follow.
15 With joy and gladness they are led along
   as they enter the palace of the king.


16 In the place of ancestors you, O king,* shall have sons;
   you will make them princes in all the earth.
17 I will cause your name to be celebrated in all generations;
   therefore the peoples will praise you for ever and ever.

Psalm 46

God’s Defence of His City and People

To the leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A Song.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
   a very present* help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
   though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3 though its waters roar and foam,
   though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
          Selah


4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
   the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of the city;* it shall not be moved;
   God will help it when the morning dawns.
6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
   he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our refuge.*
          Selah


8 Come, behold the works of the Lord;
   see what desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
   he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
   he burns the shields with fire.
10 ‘Be still, and know that I am God!
   I am exalted among the nations,
   I am exalted in the earth.’
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our refuge.*
          Selah
