Song of Solomon 5:9-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible


9 How is your beloved better than others, most beautiful of women?1 How is your beloved better than others, that you charge us so?


10 My lover is radiant and ruddy, outstanding among ten thousand.2 11 His head is purest gold; his hair is wavy and black as a raven. 12 His eyes are like doves3 by the water streams, washed in milk,4 mounted like jewels. 13 His cheeks5 are like beds of spice6 yielding perfume. His lips are like lilies7 dripping with myrrh.8 14 His arms are rods of gold set with chrysolite. His body is like polished ivory decorated with sapphires.a9 15 His legs are pillars of marble set on bases of pure gold. His appearance is like Lebanon,10 choice as its cedars. 16 His mouth11 is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my lover,12 this my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.13
