Song of Solomon 51 I am come into my garden, my sister, my bride: I have gathered my myrrh with my ▼ spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk. Eat, O friends; Drink, yea, drink abundantly, ▼ O beloved. ▼
▼ 1) Or balsam 2) Or of love2 I ▼ was asleep, but my heart waked: It is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying , Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my ▼ undefiled; For my head is filled with dew, My locks with the drops of the night. ▼
▼ 1) Or sleep, but my heart waketh 2) Heb perfect3 I have put off my garment; How shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them? 4 My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door , And my ▼ heart was moved for him. ▼
▼ 1) Heb bowels5 I rose up to open to my beloved; And my hands dropped with myrrh, And my fingers with liquid myrrh, Upon the handles of the bolt. 6 I opened to my beloved; But my beloved had ▼ withdrawn himself, and was gone. My soul ▼ had failed me when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. ▼
▼ 1) Or turned away 2) Heb went forth7 The watchmen that go about the city found me, They smote me, they wounded me; The keepers of the walls took away my ▼ mantle from me. ▼
▼ 1) Or veil8 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, If ye find my beloved, ▼ That ye tell him, that I am sick from love. ▼
▼ 1) Heb What will ye tell him? That etc9 What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? What is thy beloved more than another beloved, That thou dost so adjure us? 10 My beloved is white and ruddy, ▼ The chiefest among ten thousand. ▼
▼ 1) Heb Marked out by a banner11 His head is as the most fine gold; His locks are ▼ bushy, and black as a raven. ▼
▼ 1) Or curling12 His eyes are like doves beside the water-brooks, Washed with milk, and ▼ fitly set. ▼
▼ 1) Or sitting by full streams13 His cheeks are as a bed of ▼ spices, As ▼ banks of sweet herbs: His lips are as lilies, dropping liquid myrrh. ▼
▼ 1) Or balsam 2) Or towers of perfumes14 His hands are as ▼ rings of gold set with ▼ beryl: His body is as ▼
▼ 3ivory work ▼
▼ 4overlaid with sapphires. ▼
▼ 1) Or cylinders 2) Or topaz 3) Or bright ivory 4) Or encrusted15 His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: His aspect is like Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. 16 His ▼ mouth is most sweet; Yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem. ▼
▼ 1) Or speech ; Heb palate
