Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:1 -
I am come into my garden, my sister, my bride:
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice;
I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey;
I have drunk my wine with my milk.
Eat, O friends;
Drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:2 -
I was asleep, but my heart waked:
It is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying,
Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled;
For my head is filled with dew,
My locks with the drops of the night.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:3 -
I have put off my garment; how shall I put it on?
I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:4 -
My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door,
And my heart was moved for him.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:5 -
I rose up to open to my beloved;
And my hands droppeth with myrrh,
And my fingers with liquid myrrh,
Upon the handles of the bolt.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:6 -
I opened to my beloved;
But my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone.
My soul had failed me when he spake:
I sought him, but I could not find him;
I called him, but he gave me no answer.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:7 -
The watchmen that go about the city found me,
They smote me, they wounded me;
The keepers of the walls took away my mantle from me.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:8 -
I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
If ye find my beloved,
That ye tell him, that I am sick from love.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:9 -
What is thy beloved more than another beloved,
O thou fairest among women?
What is thy beloved more than another beloved,
That thou dost so adjure us?

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:10 -
My beloved is white and ruddy,
The chiefest among ten thousand.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:11 -
His head is as the most fine gold;
His locks are bushy, and black as a raven.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:12 -
His eyes are like doves beside the water-brooks,
Washed with milk, and fitly set.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:13 -
His cheeks are as a bed of spices,
As banks of sweet herbs:
His lips are as lilies, dropping liquid myrrh.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:14 -
His hands are as rings of gold set with beryl:
His body is as ivory work overlaid with sapphires.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:15 -
His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold:
His aspect is like Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:16 -
His mouth is most sweet;
Yea, he is altogether lovely.
This is my beloved, and this is my friend,
O daughters of Jerusalem.
