Study Questions

Psalm 45

Truth Tuesday

What truth is God teaching you through Psalm 45? “Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear…” I am a daughter of the King. I will give ear to His words.

Scripture Correction from questions: The reference is Mark 13:32, not Matthew 13:32.

Word Study

“The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord.” NIV ”

So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty for he is thy Lord and worship thou him.” Psalm 45:11 KJV Notice the word for honor in the NIV. In the KJV the word is worship: shachah  (shaw-khaw’) He thinks his bride is beautiful. His bride is to bow self down, crouch, fall down flat, humbly beseech, do reverence, worship.
