Psalm 45: A Song for the King's Marriage. Starts, "My heart is inditing a good matter." This is a wedding song composed and sung by a minstrel, played on an instrument shaped like a rose. But it's also about a messiah — either one who already came and left after getting hardcore murdered, or one who is still planning an eventual visit that will likely never happen because the world is on fire and there are no Airbnb's available.

Psalm 46: A song of holy confidence / Luther's Psalm. Starts, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Most famous for this line in verse 10: "Be still, and know that I am God." President Barack Obama referenced this psalm in several speeches, and Shakespeare likely left his mark on the King James translation due to a Right Place / Right Time sequence of events that had Wife jumping up and down in excitement.

Psalm 47: God Is the King of All the Earth. Starts, "O clap your hands, all ye people." This one is a little anticlimactic after Obama and Shakespeare, ngl, even with Wife's vague reference to a Sublime song.
