Psalm 45

Psalm 45[a]

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.[b] A wedding song.

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
    as I recite my verses for the king;
    my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

You are the most excellent of men
    and your lips have been anointed with grace,
    since God has blessed you forever.

Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
    clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
In your majesty ride forth victoriously
    in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
    let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
    let the nations fall beneath your feet.
Your throne, O God,[c] will last for ever and ever;
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
    by anointing you with the oil of joy.
All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
    from palaces adorned with ivory
    the music of the strings makes you glad.
Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
    at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.

10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
    Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,[d]
    people of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
    her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
    her virgin companions follow her—
    those brought to be with her.
15 Led in with joy and gladness,
    they enter the palace of the king.

16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
    you will make them princes throughout the land.

17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
    therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.

詩篇 45

婚禮詩歌

可拉後裔作的訓誨詩,也是婚禮上唱的情歌,交給樂長,調用「百合花」。

1我心中湧出美麗的詩章,
我要把它獻給王,
我的舌頭是詩人手上的妙筆。
你俊美無比,口出恩言,
因此上帝永遠賜福給你。
偉大的王啊,
佩上你的寶劍,
你是何等尊貴、威嚴!
你威嚴無比,所向披靡,
捍衛真理和正義,
保護卑微的人。
願你的右手彰顯可畏的作為!
你的利箭刺穿敵人的心窩,
列國臣服在你腳下。
上帝啊,你的寶座永遠長存,
你以公義的杖執掌王權。
你喜愛公義,憎惡邪惡,
因此上帝,你的上帝,
用喜樂之油膏你,
使你超過同伴。
你的衣袍散發出沒藥、沉香和肉桂的芬芳,
你陶醉在象牙宮的弦樂中。
眾公主在你的貴客中,
戴俄斐金飾的王后站在你右邊。
10 女子啊,
要側耳傾聽:不要再掛念家鄉的父老,
11 王喜歡你的美貌,
你要敬重他,因他是你的主。
12 泰爾人必來送禮,
富人必來取悅你。
13 公主身穿金線衣,無比華貴。
14 她身披錦繡,
由侍女伴隨前來見王,
15 她們歡喜快樂地進入王宮。
16 你的子孫將來要繼承祖先的王位,
你要立他們在各地做王。
17 我要使你的名世代受尊崇,
萬民必永遠稱謝你。
