Psalm 45, a song of celebration.
Beautifully written for the occasion of King David’s marriage. Did the Director of Music understand that this song was not just for David, but prophetically celebrated Christ and His bride?
David, the son of mankind
“My heart is moved with a good theme.
I address my verses to the King.
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are the most handsome of the sons of mankind.
Grace is poured upon Your lips.
Therefore, God has blessed You forever.” (Vs1-2)
Jesus, the Son of God
“Your throne, God, is forever and ever.
The scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your companions.” (Vs 6-7)
His church, the bride
“Listen, daughter, look and incline your ear:
Forget your people and your father’s house.
Then the King will crave your beauty.
Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.” (Vs 10-11)
By intentionally hearing truth and forgetting the past, (our life of sin) we are no longer of this world, but separate, holy and beautiful, desired by our Lord.
