The Torment of Separation

1 "aI have 1come into my garden, 2my sister, my bride; I have gathered my 3myrrh along with my balsam. I have eaten my honeycomb band my 4honey; I have 5drunk my wine cand my milk. Eat, 6friends; Drink and dimbibe deeply, O lovers." 2 "eI was asleep but my heart was awake. A voice! My beloved was knocking: 'Open to me, 7my sister, my darling, 8My dove, my perfect one! For my head is fdrenched with dew, My 9locks with the gdamp of the night.' 3 "I have 10taken off my dress, How can I put it on again? I have 11washed my feet, How can I dirty them again? 4 "My beloved extended his hand through the opening, And my h12feelings were aroused for him. 5 "I arose to open to my beloved; And my hands 13dripped with myrrh, And my fingers with iliquid myrrh, On the handles of the bolt. 6 "I opened to my beloved, But my beloved had 14turned away and had gone! My jheart went out to him as he 15spoke. I 16searched for him but I did not find him; I 17called him but he did not answer me. 7 "The 18watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me, They struck me and wounded me; The guardsmen of the walls took away my shawl from me. 8 "I 19adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, If you find my beloved, As to what you will tell him: For 20I am lovesick ." 9 "klWhat kind of beloved is your beloved, O 21most beautiful among women? mWhat kind of beloved is your beloved, That thus you adjure us?"

Admiration by the Bride

10 "nMy beloved is dazzling and 22ruddy, o23Outstanding among ten thousand. 11 "His head is like gold, pure gold; His 24locks are like clusters of dates And black as a raven. 12 "His 25eyes are like doves Beside streams of water, Bathed in milk, And preposed in their 26setting. 13 "His cheeks are like a 27bed of balsam, Banks of sweet-scented herbs; His lips are 28lilies 29Dripping with liquid myrrh. 14 "His hands are rods of gold Set with 30beryl; His abdomen is carved ivory Inlaid with q31sapphires. 15 "His legs are pillars of alabaster Set on pedestals of pure gold; His appearance is like 32Lebanon Choice as the 33cedars. 16 "His r34mouth is full of sweetness. And he is wholly 35desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem."
