Solomon Praises the Beauty of His Bride

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:1 -

Behold, you are beautiful!

Your eyes are like doves behind your veil;

Your hair is like a flock of goats

That have leapt down from Mount Gilead.

“Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes

Which have come up from their washing,

All of which bear twins,

And not one among them has [fn]lost her young.

“Your lips are like a scarlet thread,

And your mouth is lovely.

Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate

Behind your veil.

Built [fn]with rows of stones

On which are hung one thousand shields,

All the small shields of the mighty men.

Twins of a gazelle

Which [fn]feed among the lilies.

From the top of Senir and Hermon,

From the dens of lions,

From the mountains of leopards.

You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes,

With a single strand of your necklace.

How much better is your love than wine,

Honey and milk are under your tongue,

And the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.

A [fn]rock garden locked, a spring sealed up.

With choice fruits, henna with nard plants,

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:14 -

Nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,

With all the trees of frankincense,

Myrrh and aloes, along with all the finest [fn]spices.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:15 -

You are a garden spring,

A well of [fn]fresh water,

And streams flowing from Lebanon.”

[fn]Awake, O north wind,

And come, wind of the south;

Make my garden breathe out fragrance,

Let its [fn]spices flow forth.

May my beloved come into his garden

And eat its choice fruits!”
