Song of Solomon 71How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O anoble daughter!
Your rounded thighs are like bjewels,
the work of ca master hand.
2Your navel is a rounded bowl
that never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is a heap of wheat,
encircled with dlilies.
3 eYour two breasts are like two fawns,
twins of a gazelle.
4Your fneck is like an ivory tower.
Your geyes are pools in hHeshbon,
by the gate of Bath-rabbim.
Your nose is like a tower of iLebanon,
which looks toward jDamascus.
5Your head crowns you like kCarmel,
and your lflowing locks are like purple;
a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 mHow beautiful and npleasant you are,
O loved one, with all your delights! ▼
▼Or among delights
7Your stature is like a palm tree,
and your breasts are like its clusters.
8I say I will climb the palm tree
and lay hold of its fruit.
Oh may your breasts be like pclusters of the vine,
and the scent of your breath like apples,
9and your qmouth ▼
▼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 tI am my beloved’s,
uand his desire is for me.
The Bride Gives Her Love11 vCome, my beloved,
let us go out into the fields
and lodge in the villages; ▼
▼Or among the henna plants
12let us go out early to the vineyards
xand see whether the vines have budded,
whether ythe grape blossoms have opened
and the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.
13 zThe mandrakes give forth fragrance,
and beside our doors are all choice fruits,
aanew as well as old,
which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
