My heart is overflowing with a goodly word; I address my works to the Sovereign; My tongue is the pen of a speedy writer.
You are more handsome than the sons of men; Favour has been poured upon Your lips; Therefore Elohim has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, Your excellency and Your splendour.
And ride prosperously in Your splendour, On the matter of truth and humility, righteousness; And let Your right hand lead You to awesome matters .
Your arrows are sharp In the heart of the Sovereign's enemies - Peoples fall under You.
Your throne, O Elohim, is forever and ever; The sceptre of Your reign Is a sceptre of straightness.
You have loved righteousness and hated wrongness; Therefore Elohim, Your Elohim, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
All Your garments are myrrh and aloes, cassia; Out of the palaces of ivory, Stringed instruments have made You glad.
Daughters of sovereigns are among Your precious ones; At Your right hand stands the sovereigness in gold from Ophir.
Listen, O daughter, and see, And incline your ear, And forget your own people and your father's house;
And let the Sovereign delight in your loveliness; Because He is your Master - bow yourself to Him.
And the daughter of Tsor with a gift, The rich among the people seek your favour.
The daughter of the Sovereign Is all esteemed within the palace; Her dress is embroidered with gold.
She is brought to the Sovereign in embroidered work; Maidens, her companions following her, Are brought to You.
They are brought with gladness and rejoicing; They enter the Sovereign's palace.
Instead of Your fathers are Your sons, Whom You appoint princes in all the earth.
I cause Your Name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people praise You forever and ever.
