Song of Solomon 4

Solomon’s Love Expressed

Lit Behold
How beautiful c you are, my darling,
Lit Behold
How beautiful you are!
Your e eyes are like doves f behind your veil;
Your g hair is like a flock of goats
That have descended from Mount h Gilead.
“Your i teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes
Which have come up from their washing,
All of which bear twins,
And not one among them has
Or miscarried
lost her young.
Your lips are like a k scarlet thread,
And your l mouth is lovely.
Your m temples are like a slice of a pomegranate
Behind your veil.
“Your n neck is like the tower of David,
Or for an arsenal
with rows of stones
On which are p hung a thousand shields,
All the round q shields of the mighty men.
“Your r two breasts are like two fawns,
Twins of a gazelle
Which s feed among the lilies.
t Until
Lit the day blows
the cool of the day
When the shadows flee away,
I will go my way to the mountain of v myrrh
And to the hill of w frankincense.

x You are altogether beautiful, my darling,
And there is no blemish in you.
Come with me from y Lebanon, my z bride,
May you come with me from Lebanon.
Or Look
Journey down from the summit of ab Amana,
From the summit of ac Senir and Hermon,
From the dens of lions,
From the mountains of leopards.
You have made my heart beat faster ad my sister, my bride;
You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes,
With a single strand of your ae necklace.
10  af How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!
How much ag better is your love than wine,
And the ah fragrance of your oils
Than all kinds of
Or balsam odors
11 Your lips, my bride aj drip ak honey;
Honey and milk are under your tongue,
And the fragrance of your garments is like the al fragrance of Lebanon.
12 A garden locked is my sister, my bride,
Lit stone heap
rock garden locked, a an spring ao sealed up.
13 Your shoots are an
Or park or paradise
aq orchard of ar pomegranates
With as choice fruits at henna with nard plants,
14  au Nard and saffron, calamus and av cinnamon,
With all the trees of aw frankincense,
ax Myrrh and aloes, along with all the finest
Or balsam odors
15 You are a garden spring,
A well of
Lit living
ba fresh water,
And streams flowing from Lebanon.”

Awake, O north wind,
And come, wind of the south;
Make my bc garden breathe out fragrance,
Let its
Or balsam odors
Lit flow forth
be wafted abroad.
May bf my beloved come into his garden
And eat its bg choice fruits!”
