Psalms 45 Romans
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. Thou art fairer than
the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore
God hath blessed thee for ever.
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and
righteousness; and thy
right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
If ever there were a Prophet with the pen of a ready writer, that
Prophet would have been the Apostle Paul who penned two thirds of the New
Testament. It is simply beautiful to behold his greatest contribution to the Christian Canon geometrically
aligned here with Psalm 45. The common vocabulary between this Psalm and Romans is
also striking, especially Grace which appears only twice in the Psalms, with its debut
being found here.
The highlighted words above immediately draw my mind to Romans 9
I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness
in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could
wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to
the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory,
and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all,
God blessed for ever. Amen.
Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which
are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but,
In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
There are actually a number of KeyLinks here because of the rare appearance of Grace in the Psalms. Also
there are other KeyLinks, such as (God, blessed, for ever, within 2 verses of children), for example.
