GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)

2 My beloved went to his garden, to the beds of spices, to graze his flock in the gardens and gather lilies. 2 My lover has gone down to his garden, to the beds of spices, to browse in the gardens and to gather lilies.
3 I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine. He is the one who grazes his flock among the lilies. 3 I am my lover's and my lover is mine; he browses among the lilies.
4 You are beautiful, my true love, like Tirzah, lovely like Jerusalem, awe-inspiring like those great cities. 4 You are beautiful, my darling, as Tirzah, lovely as Jerusalem, majestic as troops with banners.
5 Turn your eyes away from me. They enchant me! Your hair is like a flock of goats moving down from Gilead. 5 Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me. Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from Gilead.
6 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep, sheep that come up from the washing. All of them bear twins, and not one has lost its young. 6 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep coming up from the washing. Each has its twin, not one of them is alone.
7 Your temples behind your veil are like slices of pomegranate. 7 Your temples behind your veil are like the halves of a pomegranate.
8 There are 60 queens, 80 concubines, and countless virgins, 8 Sixty queens there may be, and eighty concubines, and virgins beyond number;
9 but she is unique, my dove, my perfect one. Her mother thinks she is unique. She is pure to the one who gave birth to her. Her sisters saw her and blessed her. Queens and concubines saw her and praised her. 9 but my dove, my perfect one, is unique, the only daughter of her mother, the favorite of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines praised her.
10 Who is this young woman? She looks like the dawn. She is beautiful like the moon, pure like the sun, awe-inspiring like those heavenly bodies. 10 Who is this that appears like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, majestic as the stars in procession?
11 I went to the walnut grove to look at the blossoms in the valley, to see if the grapevine had budded and if the pomegranates were in bloom. 11 I went down to the grove of nut trees to look at the new growth in the valley, to see if the vines had budded or the pomegranates were in bloom.
12 I did not know that I had become like the chariots of my noble people. 12 Before I realized it, my desire set me among the royal chariots of my people.
13 Come back! Come back, young woman from Shulam! Come back! Come back so that we may look at you! Why do you look at me, the young woman from Shulam, as you look at the dance of Mahanaim? 13 Come back, come back, O Shulammite; come back, come back, that we may gaze on you! Why would you gaze on the Shulammite as on the dance of Mahanaim?
