Song of Solomon 71 How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O a noble daughter!
Your rounded thighs are like b jewels,
the work of c a master hand.
2 Your navel is a rounded bowl
that never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is a heap of wheat,
encircled with d lilies.
3 e Your two breasts are like two fawns,
twins of a gazelle.
4 Your f neck is like an ivory tower.
Your g eyes are pools in h Heshbon,
by the gate of Bath-rabbim.
Your nose is like a tower of i Lebanon,
which looks toward j Damascus.
5 Your head crowns you like k Carmel,
and your l flowing locks are like purple;
a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 m How beautiful and n pleasant you are,
O loved one, with all your delights! ▼
▼ Or among delights
7 Your stature is like a palm tree,
and your breasts are like its clusters.
8 I say I will climb the palm tree
and lay hold of its fruit.
Oh may your breasts be like p clusters of the vine,
and the scent of your breath like apples,
9 and your q mouth ▼
▼ Hebrew palatelike the best wine.
SheIt goes down smoothly for my beloved,
gliding over lips and teeth. ▼
▼ Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate; Hebrew causing the lips of sleepers to speak
10 t I am my beloved’s,
u and his desire is for me.
The Bride Gives Her Love11 v Come, my beloved,
let us go out into the fields
and lodge in the villages; ▼
▼ Or among the henna plants
12 let us go out early to the vineyards
x and see whether the vines have budded,
whether y the grape blossoms have opened
and the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.
13 z The mandrakes give forth fragrance,
and beside our doors are all choice fruits,
aa new as well as old,
which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
