On the handles of the bolt.
6 “I opened to my beloved,
But my beloved had w turned away and had gone!
▼ Lit soulheart went out to him as he y spoke.
I z searched for him but I did not find him;
I aa called him but he did not answer me.
7 “The ab watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,
They struck me and wounded me;
The guardsmen of the walls took away my shawl from me.

If you find my beloved,
As to what you will tell him:
For ad I am lovesick.”

This is my beloved and this is my friend,
O daughters of Jerusalem.”
