Psalm 45 (21st Century King James Version)
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
45 My heart is composing a goodly matter; I speak of the verses which I have made concerning the King; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2 Thou art fairer than the children of men; grace is poured into Thy lips; therefore God hath blessed Thee for ever.
3 Gird Thy sword upon Thy thigh, O most Mighty, with Thy glory and Thy majesty.
4 And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Thy right hand shall teach Thee fearsome things.
5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies, whereby the people fall under Thee.
6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; the scepter of Thy Kingdom is a righteous scepter.
7 Thou lovest righteousness and hatest wickedness; therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.
8 All Thy garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia, out of the ivory palaces whereby they have made Thee glad.
9 Kings’ daughters were among Thy honorable women; at Thy right hand stood 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; worship thou Him.
12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favor.
13 The King’s daughter is all glorious within; her clothing 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.
