Psalm 45 is a love song, directed to the king as God’s representative leader. The Sons of Korah praise the king’s person, his office, and the work that he does. The book of Hebrews uses verses 6-7 to teach us that this Psalm is ultimately about King Jesus. As we come to worship, we celebrate the glory and majesty of the King of Kings, and we make our pleasing theme the person and work of Jesus Christ. In the Church’s worship, the Bride of Christ adopts the attitude found in verse 13-15: gloriously dressed, we come to God’s house filled with joy and gladness over our Husband and King, praising His name forever and ever.
