Song of Solomon 1:9-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

Lover

9 I liken you, my darling, to a mare harnessed to one of the chariots1 of Pharaoh. 10 Your cheeks2 are beautiful with earrings, your neck with strings of jewels.3 11 We will make you earrings of gold, studded with silver.

Beloved

12 While the king was at his table, my perfume spread its fragrance.4 13 My lover is to me a sachet of myrrh5 resting between my breasts. 14 My lover6 is to me a cluster of henna7 blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi.8

Lover

15 How beautiful9 you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves.10

Beloved

16 How handsome you are, my lover!11 Oh, how charming! And our bed is verdant.

Lover

17 The beams of our house are cedars;12 our rafters are firs.
