Psalm 45 Tuesday, March 3, 2020

1 Tuesday Lent Psalm 45

1  My heart is inditing of a good matter *
I speak of the things which I have made unto the King.

2  My tongue is the pen *
of a ready writer.

3  Thou art fairer than the children of men *
full of grace are thy lips, because God hath blessed thee for ever.

4  Gird thee with thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou most Mighty *
according to thy worship and renown.

5  Good luck have thou with thine honor *
ride on, because of the word of truth, of meekness, and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

6  Thy arrows are very sharp, and the people shall be subdued unto thee *
even in the midst among the King’s enemies.

7  Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever *
the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

8  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity *
wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

9  All thy garments smell of myrrh, aloes, and cassia *
out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

10  Kings’ daughters were among thy honorable women *
upon thy right hand did stand the queen in a vesture of gold, wrought about with divers colors.

11  Hearken, O daughter, and consider, incline thine ear *
forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house.

12  So shall the King have pleasure in thy beauty *
for he is thy Lord God, and worship thou him.

13  And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift *
like as the rich also among the people shall make their supplication before thee.

15  She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needle-work *
the virgins that be her fellows shall bear her company, and shall be brought unto thee.

16  With joy and gladness shall they be brought *
and shall enter into the King’s palace.

17  Instead of thy fathers thou shalt have children *
whom thou mayest make princes in all lands.

18  I will remember thy Name from one generation to another *
therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, world without end.
