Solomon Admires His Bride's Beauty

1 Behold, 1you are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful! 2Your eyes are doves 3behind your veil. 4Your hair is like a flock of goats leaping down 5the slopes of Gilead. 2 Your 6teeth 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. 3 Your lips are like 7a scarlet thread, and your mouth is 8lovely. Your 9cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate 10behind your veil. 4 Your 11neck is like the tower of David, built in 12rows of stone;a on it 13hang a thousand shields, all of 14them shields of warriors. 5 Your 15two breasts are like two 16fawns, twins of a gazelle, that 17graze among the lilies. 6 18Until the day breathes and the shadows flee, I will go away to the mountain of 19myrrh and the hill of 20frankincense. 7 21You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no 22flaw in you. 8 23Come with me from 24Lebanon, my 25bride; come with me from 26Lebanon. Departb from the peak of Amana, from the peak of 27Senir and 28Hermon, from the dens of lions, from the mountains of leopards. 9 You have captivated my heart, my 29sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one 30jewel of your necklace. 10 How beautiful is your love, my 31sister, my bride! How much 32better is your love than wine, and 33the fragrance of your oils than any spice! 11 Your 34lips drip nectar, my bride; 35honey and milk are under your tongue; the fragrance of your garments is 36like the fragrance of 37Lebanon. 12 A garden locked is my 38sister, my bride, a spring locked, 39a fountain 40sealed. 13 Your shoots are 41an orchard of pomegranates with all 42choicest fruits, 43henna with 44nard, 14 nard and saffron, 45calamus and 46cinnamon, with all trees of 47frankincense, 48myrrh and 49aloes, with all 50choice spices-- 15 a garden fountain, a well of 51living water, and flowing streams from 52Lebanon. 16 Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon my 53garden, let its spices flow.54Let my beloved come to his 55garden, and eat its 56choicest fruits.
