Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:1 - How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O noble daughter!
Your rounded thighs are like jewels,
the work of a master hand.

that never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is a heap of wheat,
encircled with lilies.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:3 - Your two breasts are like two fawns,
twins of a gazelle.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:4 - Your neck is like an ivory tower.
Your eyes are pools in Heshbon,
by the gate of Bath-rabbim.
Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon,
which looks toward Damascus.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 7:5 - Your head crowns you like Carmel,
and your flowing locks are like purple;
a king is held captive in the tresses.

and lay hold of its fruit.

She
It goes down smoothly for my beloved,
gliding over lips and teeth.[fn]

let us go out into the fields
and lodge in the villages;[fn]

and see whether the vines have budded,
whether the grape blossoms have opened
and the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.

and beside our doors are all choice fruits,
new as well as old,
which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
