Psalms 45:3


45:3 Strap your sword to your thigh, O warrior! 1 

Appear in your majestic splendor! 2 

Psalms 45:9


45:9 Princesses 3  are among your honored guests, 4 

your bride 5  stands at your right hand, wearing jewelry made with gold from Ophir. 6 

1 tn Or “mighty one.”

2 tn The Hebrew text has simply, “your majesty and your splendor,” which probably refers to the king’s majestic splendor when he appears in full royal battle regalia.

3 tn Heb “daughters of kings.”

4 tn Heb “valuable ones.” The form is feminine plural.

5 tn This rare Hebrew noun apparently refers to the king’s bride, who will soon be queen (see Neh 2:6). The Aramaic cognate is used of royal wives in Dan 5:2-3, 23.

6 tn Heb “a consort stands at your right hand, gold of Ophir.”

sn Gold from Ophir is also mentioned in Isa 13:12 and Job 28:16. The precise location of Ophir is uncertain; Arabia, India, East Africa, and South Africa have all been suggested as options.
