Solomon Admires His Bride’s Beauty

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:1 - He
Behold, you are beautiful, my love,
behold, you are beautiful!
Your eyes are doves
behind your veil.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
leaping down the slopes of Gilead.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:2 - Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes
that have come up from the washing,
all of which bear twins,
and not one among them has lost its young.

and your mouth is lovely.
Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
behind your veil.

built in rows of stone;[fn]
on it hang a thousand shields,
all of them shields of warriors.

twins of a gazelle,
that graze among the lilies.

and the shadows flee,
I will go away to the mountain of myrrh
and the hill of frankincense.

there is no flaw in you.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:8 - Come with me from Lebanon, my bride;

from the dens of lions,
from the mountains of leopards.

you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
with one jewel of your necklace.

How much better is your love than wine,

honey and milk are under your tongue;
the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.

a spring locked, a fountain sealed.

with all choicest fruits,
henna with nard,

with all trees of frankincense,
myrrh and aloes,
with all choice spices—

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:15 - a garden fountain, a well of living water,
and flowing streams from Lebanon.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:16 - Awake, O north wind,
and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden,
let its spices flow.

She
Let my beloved come to his garden,
and eat its choicest fruits.
