1[For the choirmaster Tune: 'Lilies . . .' Of the sons of Korah Poem Love song] My heart is stirred by anoble theme, I address my poem to the king, my tongue the pen of an expert scribe. 2Of al men you are the most handsome, gracefulness is a dew upon your lips, for God has blessed youfor ever. 3Warrior, strap your sword at your side, in your majesty and splendour advance, 4ride on in the cause of truth, gentleness and uprightness. Stretch the bowstring tight, lending terror toyour right hand. 5Your arrows are sharp, nations lie at your mercy, the king's enemies lose heart. 6Your throne is from God, for ever and ever, the sceptre of your kingship a sceptre of justice, 7you love uprightness and detest evil. This is why God, your God, has anointed you with oil ofgladness, as none of your rivals, 8your robes al myrrh and aloes. From palaces of ivory, harps bring you joy, 9in your retinue are daughters of kings, the consort at your right hand in gold of Ophir. 10Listen, my daughter, attend to my words and hear; forget your own nation and your ancestral home, 11then the king will fal in love with your beauty; he is your lord, bow down before him. 12The daughter of Tyre wil court your favour with gifts, and the richest of peoples 13with jewels set in gold. Clothed 14in brocade, the king's daughter is led within to the king with the maidens of her retinue; hercompanions are brought to her, 15they enter the king's palace with joy and rejoicing. 16Instead of your ancestors you will have sons; you wil make them rulers over the whole world. 17I wil make your name endure from generation to generation, so nations will sing your praise for everand ever.
