14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king; her virgin companions follow her- those brought to be with her.
14 In many-colored robes she is led to the king, with her virgin companions following behind her.
14 All her dresses and robes are woven with gold. She is led to the king, followed by her virgin companions.
14 She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.
14 In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 45:14
Commentary on Psalm 45:10-17
(Read Psalm 45:10-17)
If we desire to share these blessings, we must hearken to Christ's word. We must forget our carnal and sinful attachments and pursuits. He must be our Lord as well as our Saviour; all idols must be thrown away, that we may give him our whole heart. And here is good encouragement, thus to break off from former alliances. The beauty of holiness, both on the church and on particular believers, is, in the sight of Christ, of great price, and very amiable. The work of grace is the workmanship of the Spirit, it is the image of Christ upon the soul, a partaking of the Divine nature. It is clear of all sin, there is none in it, nor any comes from it. There is nothing glorious in the old man or corrupt nature; but in the new man, or work of grace upon the soul, every thing is glorious. The robe of Christ's righteousness, which he has wrought out for his church, the Father imputes unto her, and bestows upon her. None are brought to Christ, but those whom the Father brings. This notes the conversion of souls to him. The robe of righteousness, and garments of salvation, the change of raiment Christ has put upon her. Such as strictly cleave to Christ, loving him in singleness of heart, are companions of the bride, who partake of the very same grace, enjoy the same privileges, and share in one common salvation. These, every one, shall be brought to the King; not one lost or left behind. Instead of the Old Testament church, there shall be a New Testament church, a Gentile church. In the believing hope of our everlasting happiness in the other world, let us always keep up the remembrance of Christ, as our only way thither; and transmit the remembrance of him to succeeding generations, that his name may endure for ever.
