Song of Solomon 6
Others1 Where has your beloved gone,
O a most beautiful among women?
Where has your beloved turned,
that we may seek him with you?
Together in the Garden of Love
She2 My beloved has gone down to his b garden
to c the beds of spices,
to d graze ▼
▼ Or to pasture his flock; also verse 3in the gardens
and to gather f lilies.
3 g I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;
he grazes among the lilies.
Solomon and His Bride Delight in Each Other
He4 You are beautiful as h Tirzah, i my love,
j lovely as k Jerusalem,
l awesome as an army with banners.
5 Turn away your eyes from me,
for they overwhelm me—
m Your hair is like a flock of goats
leaping down the slopes of Gilead.
6 n Your teeth are like a flock of ewes
that have come up from the washing;
all of them bear twins;
not one among them has lost its young.
7 o Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
behind your veil.
8 There are p sixty q queens and eighty r concubines,
and s virgins without number.
9 My t dove, my u perfect one, is the only one,
the only one of her mother,
pure to v her who bore her.
w The young women saw her and called her blessed;
x the queens and y concubines also, and they praised her.
10 z “Who is this who looks down like the dawn,
beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun,
aa awesome as an army with banners?”
She11 I went down to the nut orchard
to look at ab the blossoms of the valley,
ac to see whether the vines had budded,
whether the pomegranates were in bloom.
12 ad Before I was aware, my desire set me
among ae the chariots of my kinsman, a prince. ▼
▼ Or chariots of Ammi-Nadib
▼ Ch 7:1 in HebrewReturn, return, O ah Shulammite,
return, return, that we may look upon you.
HeWhy should you look upon ai the Shulammite,
as upon aj a dance before ak two armies? ▼
▼ Or dance of Mahanaim
