3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, to wit, thy worship and thy glory:
4 And prosper with thy glory: [a]ride upon the word of truth and of meekness and of righteousness: so thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
5 Thine arrows are sharp to pierce the heart of the King’s enemies: therefore the people shall fall under thee.Read full chapter
- Psalm 45:4 He alludeth to them that ride in chariots in their triumphs, showing that the quiet state of a kingdom standeth in truth, meekness and justice, not in worldly pomp and vanity.
