Song of Solomon 3

The Bride’s Troubled Dream

BRIDE
On my bed night after night I sought him
b Whom my soul loves;
I c sought him but did not find him.
Or Let me arise
I must arise now and
Or Let me arise
go about the city;
In the f streets and in the squares
Or Let me seek
I must seek him whom my soul loves.’
I sought him but did not find him.
h The watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,
And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’
i Scarcely had I
Lit passed
left them
When I found him whom my soul loves;
I k held on to him and would not let him go
Until I had l brought him to my mother’s house,
And into the room of her who conceived me.”

BRIDEGROOM
“I n adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
By the o gazelles or by the hinds of the field,
That you will not arouse or awaken my love
Until
Or it
she pleases.”

Solomon’s Wedding Day

CHORUS
,
Lit Who
,
s What is this coming up from the wilderness
Like t columns of smoke,
Perfumed with u myrrh and v frankincense,
With all scented powders of the merchant?
Behold, it is the traveling couch of Solomon;
Sixty mighty men around it,
Of the mighty men of Israel.
All of them are wielders of the sword,
w Expert in war;
Each man has his x sword at his side,
Guarding against the
Lit terror in the nights
,
z terrors of the night.
King Solomon has made for himself a sedan chair
From the timber of Lebanon.
10 He made its posts of silver,
Its
Or support
back of gold
And its seat of purple fabric,
With its interior lovingly fitted out
By the ab daughters of Jerusalem.
11 Go forth, O ac daughters of Zion,
And gaze on King Solomon with the
Or wreath
crown
With which his mother has crowned him
On the ae day of his wedding,
And on the day of his gladness of heart.”
