The Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s.

Oh, that he would kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!

For your caresses[fn] are more delightful than wine.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:3 -

The fragrance of your perfume is intoxicating;

your name is perfume poured out.

No wonder young women[fn] adore you.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:4 -

Take me with you ​— ​let’s hurry.

Oh, that the king would bring[fn] me to his chambers.

We will rejoice and be glad in you;

we will celebrate your caresses more than wine.

It is only right that they adore you.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:5 -

Daughters of Jerusalem,

I am dark like the tents of Kedar,

yet lovely like the curtains of Solomon.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:6 -

Do not stare at me because I am dark,

for the sun has gazed on me.

My mother’s sons were angry with me;

they made me take care of the vineyards.

I have not taken care of my own vineyard.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:7 -

Tell me, you whom I love:

Where do you pasture your sheep?

Where do you let them rest at noon?

Why should I be like one who veils herself[fn]

beside the flocks of your companions?

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:8 -

If you do not know,

most beautiful of women,

follow[fn] the tracks of the flock,

and pasture your young goats

near the shepherds’ tents.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:9 -

I compare you, my darling,

to a[fn] mare among Pharaoh’s chariots.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:10 -

Your cheeks are beautiful with jewelry,

your neck with its necklace.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:11 -

We will make gold jewelry for you,

accented with silver.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:12 -

While the king is on his couch,[fn]

my perfume[fn] releases its fragrance.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:13 -

The one I love is a sachet of myrrh to me,

spending the night between my breasts.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:14 -

The one I love is a cluster of henna blossoms to me,

in the vineyards of En-gedi.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:15 -

How beautiful you are, my darling.

How very beautiful!

Your eyes are doves.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:16 -

How handsome you are, my love.

How delightful!

Our bed is verdant;

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 1:17 -

the beams of our house are cedars,

and our rafters are cypresses.[fn]

CSB Footnotes
Or acts of love
Or wonder virgins
Or The king has brought
Or who wanders
Some understand the young women to be the speakers in this verse.
Lit go out for yourself into
Lit my
Or is at his table
Lit nard
Or firs, or pines
