Amplified Bible

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.

Salmo 45

Para o mestre de música. De acordo com a melodia Os Lírios. Dos coraítas. Poema. Cântico de casamento.

Com o coração vibrando de boas palavras
    recito os meus versos em honra ao rei;
seja a minha língua
    como a pena de um hábil escritor.

És dos homens o mais notável;
derramou-se graça em teus lábios,
visto que Deus te abençoou para sempre.
Prende a espada à cintura, ó poderoso!
Cobre-te de esplendor e majestade.
Na tua majestade cavalga vitoriosamente
    pela verdade, pela misericórdia e pela justiça;
que a tua mão direita realize feitos gloriosos.
Tuas flechas afiadas atingem
    o coração dos inimigos do rei;
debaixo dos teus pés caem nações.
O teu trono, ó Deus,
    subsiste para todo o sempre;
cetro de justiça é o cetro do teu reino.
Amas a justiça e odeias a iniqüidade;
por isso Deus, o teu Deus,
    escolheu-te dentre os teus companheiros
    ungindo-te com óleo de alegria.
Todas as tuas vestes exalam
    aroma de mirra, aloés e cássia;
nos palácios adornados de marfim ressoam
    os instrumentos de corda que te alegram.
Filhas de reis
    estão entre as mulheres da tua corte;
à tua direita está a noiva real
    enfeitada de ouro puro de Ofir.

10 Ouça, ó filha, considere
    e incline os seus ouvidos:
Esqueça o seu povo e a casa paterna.
11 O rei foi cativado pela sua beleza;
honre-o, pois ele é o seu senhor.
12 A cidade[a] de Tiro trará[b] seus presentes;
seus moradores mais ricos buscarão o seu favor.

13 Cheia de esplendor está a princesa
    em seus aposentos,
com vestes enfeitadas de ouro.
14 Em roupas bordadas é conduzida ao rei,
    acompanhada de um cortejo de virgens;
são levadas à tua presença.
15 Com alegria e exultação
    são conduzidas ao palácio do rei.

16 Os teus filhos ocuparão o trono dos teus pais;
por toda a terra os farás príncipes.
17 Perpetuarei a tua lembrança
    por todas as gerações;
por isso as nações te louvarão
    para todo o sempre.
