Song of Solomon 1:2-4

The Bride Confesses Her Love

The translators have added speaker identifications based on the gender and number of the Hebrew words

2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!
For your b  love is better than wine;
3your c  anointing oils are fragrant;
your d  name is oil poured out;
therefore virgins love you.
4 e  Draw me after you; f  let us run.
g  The king has brought me into his chambers.


We will h  exult and rejoice in you;
we will extol i  your love more than wine;
rightly do they love you.

Song of Solomon 2:3-5


3 As an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
so is my j  beloved among the young men.
With great delight I sat k  in his shadow,
and his l  fruit was sweet to my taste.
4He m  brought me to the banqueting house
Hebrew  the house of wine

and his o  banner over me was love.
5Sustain me with p  raisins;
refresh me with apples,
q  for I am sick with love.

Song of Solomon 5:8

8I r  adjure you, O s  daughters of Jerusalem,
if you find my beloved,
that you tell him
t  I am sick with love.
