Your throne, O God,[a] will last for ever and ever;(A)
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness(B) and hate wickedness;(C)
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
    by anointing(D) you with the oil of joy.(E)
All your robes are fragrant(F) with myrrh(G) and aloes(H) and cassia;(I)
    from palaces adorned with ivory(J)
    the music of the strings(K) makes you glad.
Daughters of kings(L) are among your honored women;
    at your right hand(M) is the royal bride(N) in gold of Ophir.(O)

10 Listen, daughter,(P) and pay careful attention:(Q)
    Forget your people(R) and your father’s house.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;(S)
    honor(T) him, for he is your lord.(U)
12 The city of Tyre(V) will come with a gift,[b](W)
    people of wealth will seek your favor.
