Song of Solomon 6

1(5:17) Where has your kinsman gone, O fairest among women? Where has your kinsman turned aside? Tell us, and we will seek him with you. 2(6:1) My kinsman has gone down to his garden, to the beds of spice, to feed his flock in the gardens, and to gather lilies. 3(6:2) I am my kinsman's, and my kinsman is mine, who feeds among the lilies. 4(6:3) You are fair, my companion, as Pleasure, beautiful as Jerusalem, terrible as armies set in array. 5(6:4) Turn away your eyes from before me, for they have ravished me: your hair is as flocks of goats which have appeared from Gilead. 6(6:5) Your teeth are as flocks of shorn sheep, that have gone up from the washing, all of them bearing twins, and there is none barren among them: your lips are as a thread of scarlet, and your speech is comely. 7(6:6) Your cheek is like the rind of a pomegranate, being seen without your veil. 8(6:7) There are sixty queens, and eighty concubines, and maidens without number. 9(6:8) My dove, my perfect one is one; she is the only one of her mother; she is the choice of her that bore her. The daughters saw her, and the queens will pronounce her blessed, yes, and the concubines, and they will praise her. 10(6:9) Who is this that looks forth as the morning, fair as the moon, choice as the sun, terrible as armies set in array? 11(6:10) I went down to the garden of nuts, to look at the fruits of the valley, to see if the vine flowered, if the pomegranates blossomed. 12(6:11) There I will give you my breasts: my soul knew it not: it made me as the chariots of Aminadab. 13(6:12) Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, and we will look at you. What will you see in the Shulamite? She comes as bands of armies.
