The song of songs, which is Solomon's.2
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.3
Because of the savour of thy goodointments thy name is as ointment poured forth , therefore do the virginslove thee.
4Draw me, we will runafter thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the uprightalove thee.
I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.6Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother'schildren were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept .
7Tell me, O thou whom my soulloveth , where thou feedest , where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon:for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?8
If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds ' tents.9
I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh'schariots.10
Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels, thy neck with chains of gold.
