Song of Solomon 1

CHAPTER 1

The Beloved Woman

A song of songs which is to Solomon. Let him kiss me by kisses of his mouth! for [2are good 1your breasts] over wine. And the scent of your perfumes -- [2is over 3all 4the 5aromatics 6of perfume 7being emptied out 1your name]; on account of this the young women loved you. They drew me; [2after 3you 4for 5the scent 6of your perfumes 1we will run]. [3carried 4me 1The 2king] into his inner chamber. We should exult and be glad in you. We shall love your breasts over wine. Uprightness loved you. [2black 1I am] and fair, O daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the hide coverings of Solomon. You should not look, for I am being blackened, for [3looked over 4me 1the 2sun]. Sons of my mother quarreled with me. They made me keeper in the vineyards. [3vineyard 2my own 1I kept not]. Report to me! you whom [2loved 1my soul], where you tend, where you bed at midday; lest at any time I should become as one being covered by a veil by the herds of your companions! If you should not know yourself, O fair one among women, come forth at the heels of the flocks, and tend your kids by the tents of the shepherds! To my horse among the chariots of Pharaoh, I likened you, my dear one. 10 How [2are beautiful 1your cheeks] as a turtle-dove; your neck as pendants. 11 Representations of gold we will make for you with marks of silver. 12 Until of which time the king was at his laying down, my spikenard gave its scent. 13 [2is a bundle 3of balsam 1My beloved man] to me; [2between 3my breasts 1he shall be lodged]. 14 A cluster of camphor is my beloved man to me in vineyards of En-gedi. 15 Behold, you are fair my dear one; behold, you are fair; your eyes are as the doves. 16 Behold, you are fair, my beloved man; and indeed beautiful to [3bed 1our 2shady]. 17 Beams of our houses are cedars; our fretworks cypresses.
