▼ Or Let me arisego about the city;
In the f streets and in the squares
▼ Or Let me seekI must seek him whom my soul loves.’
I sought him but did not find him.
3 h “The watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,
And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’
4 i “Scarcely had I ▼
▼ Lit passedleft 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
▼ Or itshe pleases.”
Solomon’s Wedding Day6 ▼
▼ 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?
7 “Behold, it is the traveling couch of Solomon;
Sixty mighty men around it,
Of the mighty men of Israel.
8 “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.
9 “King Solomon has made for himself a sedan chair
From the timber of Lebanon.
10 “He made its posts of silver,
▼ Or supportback 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 wreathcrown
With which his mother has crowned him
On the ae day of his wedding,
And on the day of his gladness of heart.”
