The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I [am] the rose of Sharon, [and] the lily of the valleys. 1 I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
2 As the lily among thorns, so [is] my love among the daughters. 2 Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens.
3 As the apple-tree among the trees of the wood, so [is] my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit [was] sweet to my taste. 3 Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
4 He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me [was] love. 4 He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.
5 Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I [am] sick with love. 5 Strengthen me with raisins, refresh me with apples, for I am faint with love.
6 His left hand [is] under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me. 6 His left arm is under my head, and his right arm embraces me.
7 I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not, nor awake [my] love, till he please. 7 Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.
8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. 8 Listen! My lover! Look! Here he comes, leaping across the mountains, bounding over the hills.
9 My beloved is like a roe, or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, showing himself through the lattice. 9 My lover is like a gazelle or a young stag. Look! There he stands behind our wall, gazing through the windows, peering through the lattice.
10 My beloved spoke, and said to me, Rise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 10 My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
11 For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over [and] gone. 11 See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing [of birds] is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; 12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
13 The fig-tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines [with] the tender grape give a [good] smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. 13 The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me."
14 O my dove, [that art] in the clefts of the rock, in the secret [places] of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet [is] thy voice, and thy countenance [is] comely. 14 My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
15 Take for us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines [have] tender grapes. 15 Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.
16 My beloved [is] mine, and I [am] his: he feedeth among the lilies. 16 My lover is mine and I am his; he browses among the lilies.
17 Until the day shall break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether. 17 Until the day breaks and the shadows flee, turn, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the rugged hills.
