Book of Psalms Chapter 45

PSALMS 45:1 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

PSALMS 45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

PSALMS 45:3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.

PSALMS 45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

PSALMS 45:5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

PSALMS 45:6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

PSALMS 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

PSALMS 45:8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

PSALMS 45:9 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

PSALMS 45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;

PSALMS 45:11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.

PSALMS 45:12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.

PSALMS 45:13 The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

PSALMS 45:14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

PSALMS 45:15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.

PSALMS 45:16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

PSALMS 45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
