Song of Solomon 61 Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? Whither hath thy beloved turned him, That we may seek him with thee? 2 My beloved is gone down to his garden, To the beds of ▼ spices, To feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies. ▼
▼ 1) Or balsam3 I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine; He feedeth his flock among the lilies, 4 Thou art fair, O my love, as Tirzah, Comely as Jerusalem, Terrible as ▼ an army with banners. ▼
▼ 1) Heb bannered hosts5 Turn away thine eyes from me, For they ▼ have overcome me. Thy hair is as a flock of goats, That lie along the side of Gilead. ▼
▼ 1) Or make me afraid6 Thy teeth are like a flock of ewes, Which are come up from the washing; Whereof every one hath twins, And none is bereaved among them. 7 Thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate Behind thy veil. 8 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, And ▼ virgins without number. ▼
▼ 1) Or maidens9 My dove, my ▼ undefiled, is but one; She is the only one of her mother; She is the ▼
▼ 2choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and called her blessed; Yea , the queens and the concubines, and they praised her. ▼
▼ 1) Heb perfect 2) Or pure10 Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, ▼ Clear as the sun, Terrible as an army with banners? ▼
▼ 1) Or Pure11 I went down into the garden of nuts, To see the green plants of the valley, To see whether the vine budded, And the pomegranates were in flower. 12 Before I was aware, my ▼ soul ▼
▼ 2set me Among the chariots of my ▼
▼ 3princely people. ▼
▼ 1) Or desire 2) Or made me like the chariots of Amminadib 3) Or willing13 Return, return, O Shulammite; Return, return, that we may look upon thee. Why will ye look upon the Shulammite, As upon the dance ▼ of Mahanaim? ▼
▼ 1) Or of two companies
