The King's daughter is all glorious within ,....

Adam Clarke

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 45:13

The king's daughter is all glorious within - This, in some sense, may be spoken of Solomon's bride, the daughter of the king of Egypt; and then the expression may refer either to the cultivation of her mind, or the ornaments and splendor of her palace. The Asiatic queens, sultanas, and begums, scarcely ever appear in public. They abide in the harem in the greatest luxury and splendor; and to this, as its literal meaning, the text may possibly refer. Her clothing is of wrought gold - Of... read more

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 45:13

Verse 13 13The daughter of the King is all glorious within (172) This verse may be understood in a twofold sense; either as meaning that the queen, not only when she appears in public before all the people, but also when sitting in private in her own chamber, is always sumptuously apparelled; or, that the splendor and gorgeous appearance of her attire is not merely a thing of display, designed to dazzle the eyes of the simple, but consists of expensive and really substantial material.

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 45:1-17

The glories of the eternal King. This psalm is one of those which set forth in glowing terms the glory and majesty of the King of kings, the Anointed One, who should come into the world.

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 45:13

The King's daughter is all glorious within . The "King's daughter "of this passage can be no other than the bride herself—the" queen" of Psalms 45:9 .

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible - Psalms 45:13

She is represented here as in the palace or home of her father, before she is conducted forth to be given to her future husband in marriage. Is all “glorious.” Is all splendor or beauty; is altogether splendor. There is nothing that is not splendid, rich, magnificent in her... read more

Donald C. Fleming

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Psalms 45:1-17
