Psalm 45

A Song Celebrating the King’s Marriage.

To the Chief Musician; set to the [tune of] “Lilies.” A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem. A Song of Love.

1[a]My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my psalm to the King.
My tongue is like the pen of a skillful writer.

You are fairer than the sons of men;
Graciousness is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.


Strap Your sword on Your thigh, O mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!

And in Your majesty ride on triumphantly
For the cause of truth and humility and righteousness;
Let Your right hand guide You to awesome things.

Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples (nations) fall under You;
Your arrows pierce the hearts of the King’s enemies.


[b]Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

You have loved righteousness (virtue, morality, justice) and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, your God, has anointed You
Above Your companions with the oil of jubilation.

All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes and cassia;
From ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.

Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.

10 
Hear, O daughter, consider and incline your ear [to my instruction]:
Forget your people and your father’s house;
11 
Then the King will desire your beauty;
Because He is your Lord, bow down and honor Him.
12 
The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift;
The rich among the people will seek your favor.

13 
Glorious is the King’s daughter within [the palace];
Her robe is interwoven with gold.
14 
She will be brought to the King in embroidered garments;
The virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.
15 
With gladness and rejoicing will they be led;
They will enter into the King’s palace.

16 
In place of your fathers will be [c]your sons;
You shall make princes in all the land.
17 
I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples will praise and give You thanks forever and ever.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 45:1 Jesus spoke of what was written of Him “in the Psalms” (see Luke 24:44). This is one such Messianic psalm; however, the capitalization indicating the deity is provided with the understanding that the chapter is written against the background of an ordinary royal wedding with anonymous participants. The New Testament reference to this psalm is in Heb 1:8, 9, where vv 6, 7 is quoted and applied to Christ. The preceding verses could also be applied to Christ, as well as most of the following verses referring to the King. However, v 16 can only apply to a mortal king (see note there).
  2. Psalm 45:6 This verse has mystified many commentators since God is distinguished from the King in vv 2 and 7, and various translations have been proposed to make the Hebrew rendered “O God” something other than a reference to the deity of the King. But the writer of Hebrews clearly understood it this way.
  3. Psalm 45:16 Unlike the other references to the King, this verse cannot be applied prophetically to Christ because He had no children. But it is not unusual for a prophecy to have more than one fulfillment (typically in the near future of the prophecy and another in the distant future), and by analogy there is no reason why this psalm cannot refer both to an ordinary king and to the future Messianic King.

诗篇 45

婚礼诗歌

可拉后裔作的训诲诗,也是婚礼上唱的情歌,交给乐长,调用“百合花”。

1我心中涌出美丽的诗章,
我要把它献给王,
我的舌头是诗人手上的妙笔。
你俊美无比,口出恩言,
因此上帝永远赐福给你。
伟大的王啊,
佩上你的宝剑,
你是何等尊贵、威严!
你威严无比,所向披靡,
捍卫真理和正义,
保护卑微的人。
愿你的右手彰显可畏的作为!
你的利箭刺穿敌人的心窝,
列国臣服在你脚下。
上帝啊,你的宝座永远长存,
你以公义的杖执掌王权。
你喜爱公义,憎恶邪恶,
因此上帝,你的上帝,
用喜乐之油膏你,
使你超过同伴。
你的衣袍散发出没药、沉香和肉桂的芬芳,
你陶醉在象牙宫的弦乐中。
众公主在你的贵客中,
戴俄斐金饰的王后站在你右边。
10 女子啊,
要侧耳倾听:不要再挂念家乡的父老,
11 王喜欢你的美貌,
你要敬重他,因他是你的主。
12 泰尔人必来送礼,
富人必来取悦你。
13 公主身穿金线衣,无比华贵。
14 她身披锦绣,
由侍女伴随前来见王,
15 她们欢喜快乐地进入王宫。
16 你的子孙将来要继承祖先的王位,
你要立他们在各地做王。
17 我要使你的名世代受尊崇,
万民必永远称谢你。
