45 My heart is stirred by something good.
2 You are the most handsome of the sons of men.
Gracious speech flows from your lips.+
That is why God has blessed you forever.+
Ride in the cause of truth and humility and righteousness,+
And your right hand will accomplish* awe-inspiring things.
They pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies.+
8 All your garments are scented with myrrh and aloeswood and cassia;
From the grand ivory palace, stringed instruments make you rejoice.
9 The daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor.
10 Listen, O daughter, pay attention and incline your ear;
Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 And the king will long for your beauty,
For he is your lord,
So bow down to him.
Her clothing is adorned with* gold.
The virgin companions following her are brought in before you.
15 They will be brought with rejoicing and joy;
They will enter into the king’s palace.
16 Your sons will take the place of your forefathers.
You will appoint them as princes in all the earth.+
That is why peoples will praise you forever and ever.
