Psalm 45:1–2; Psalm 45:6–9

Your Throne, O God, Is Forever

To the choirmaster: according to Lilies. A Maskil1 of vthe Sons of Korah; a love song.

45  My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;

I address my verses to the king;

my tongue is like the pen of wa ready scribe.

You are xthe most handsome of the sons of men;

ygrace is poured upon your lips;

therefore God has blessed you forever.


fYour throne, O God, is forever and ever.

The gscepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;

hyou have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.

Therefore iGod, your God, has janointed you

with the oil of kgladness lbeyond your companions;

your robes are all fragrant with mmyrrh and aloes and cassia.

From ivory palaces nstringed instruments make you glad;

daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor;

oat your right hand stands the queen in pgold of Ophir.
