Song of Solomon 6

Mutual Delight in Each Other

b  Where has your beloved gone,
O c  most beautiful among women?
Where has your beloved turned,
That we may seek him with you?”

My beloved has gone down to his e  garden,
To the f  beds of balsam,
To g  pasture his flock in the gardens
And gather h  lilies.
3 i  I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine,
He who j  pastures his flock among the lilies.”

l  You are as beautiful as m  Tirzah, my darling,
As n  lovely as o  Jerusalem,
As p  awesome as
Lit bannered ones
an army with banners.
5Turn your eyes away from me,
For they have confused me;
r  Your hair is like a flock of goats
That have descended from Gilead.
6 s  Your teeth are like a flock of ewes
Which have come up from their washing,
All of which bear twins,
And not one among them has
Or miscarried
lost her young.
7 u  Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate
Behind your veil.
8There are sixty v  queens and eighty concubines,
Or virgins
x  maidens without number;
9 But y  my dove, my perfect one, is
Lit one
She is her mother’s
Lit one
only daughter;
She is the pure child of the one who bore her.
Lit daughters
ac  maidens saw her and called her blessed,
The ad  queens and the concubines also, and they praised her, saying,

10Who is this that
Lit looks down
grows like the dawn,
As beautiful as the full af  moon,
As pure ag  as the sun,
As ah  awesome as
Lit bannered ones
an army with banners?’
11I went down to the orchard of nut trees
To see the blossoms of the valley,
To see whether aj  the vine had budded
Or the ak  pomegranates had bloomed.
12Before I was aware, my soul set me
Over the chariots of
Another reading is Ammi-nadib
my noble people.”

Ch 7:1 in Heb
Come back, come back, O Shulammite;
Come back, come back, that we may gaze at you!”

Why should you gaze at the Shulammite,
As at the ap  dance of
Or Mahanaim
ar  the two companies?
