How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O 1noble daughter! Your rounded thighs are like 2jewels, the work of 3a master hand.
Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with 4lilies.
35Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
Your 6neck is like an ivory tower. Your 7eyes are pools in 8Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim. Your nose is like a tower of 9Lebanon, which looks toward 10Damascus.
Your head crowns you like 11Carmel, and your 12flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
613How beautiful and 14pleasant you are, O loved one, with all your delights!a7
Your stature is like a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its fruit. Oh may your breasts be like 15clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
and your 16mouthb like the best wine.It goes down smoothly for my beloved, gliding over lips and teeth.c1017I am my beloved's, 18and his desire is for me.
1119Come, my beloved, let us go out into the fields and lodge in the villages;d12
let us go out early to the vineyards 20and see whether the vines have budded, whether 21the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
1322The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and beside our doors are all choice fruits, 23new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
