How appropriate is it that this psalm happens to fall on Valentine’s Day? Traditionally this psalm is thought to be a royal wedding psalm which reflects the day when the king would be married. It also reminds me a lot of Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs which is the same thing) where we find the closest thing to an R rated description of events. If you are married and want to read something interesting with your spouse, go ahead and crack open that book of the Bible. I guarantee it will make you blush. Okay, maybe it just makes me blush. Anyway, happy Valentine’s Day. Enjoy Psalm 45.
