Eructavit cor meum.

My heart overfloweth with a good matter; I speak the things which I have made con- | -cerning• the King.

* My tongue is the pen | of a ready writer.

2 Thou art fairer than the | children• of men;

* full of grace are thy lips, because God hath | blessed thee for ever.

3 Gird thee with thy sword upon thy thigh, O | thou Most Mighty,

* according to thy | worship and renown.

4 Good luck have thou | with thine honour:

* ride on, because of the word of truth, of meekness, and righteousness; and thy right hand shall | teach thee •terri•ble things.

5 Thy arrows are very sharp in the heart | of the• King's enemies,

* and the people shall be sub- | -dued unto thee.

6 Thy seat, O God, en- | -dureth for ever;

* the sceptre of thy kingdom | is a right sceptre.

7 Thou hast loved righteousness, and | hated• iniquity;

* wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of | gladness• above thy fellows.

8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, | aloes•, and cassia;

* out of the ivory palaces, whereby | they have made thee glad.

9 Kings' daughters are among thy honour- | -able women;

* upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in a vesture of gold, wrought a- | -bout with divers colours.

10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider; in- | -cline thine ear;

* forget also thine own people, | and thy father's house.

11 So shall the King have pleasure | in thy beauty;

* for he is thy Lord, and | worship thou him.

12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there | with a gift;

* like as the rich also among the people shall make their | suppli•cation• before thee.

13 The King's daughter is all glori- | -ous within;

* her clothing | is of wrought gold.

14 She shall be brought unto the King in | raiment• of needlework:

* the virgins that be her fellows shall bear her company, and shall be | brought unto thee.

15 With joy and gladness shall | they be brought,

* and shall enter | into• the King's palace.

16 Instead of thy fathers, thou | shalt have children,

* whom thou mayest make | princes• in all lands.

17 I will make thy Name to be remembered from one generation | to another;

* therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, | world without end.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
