Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 How beautiful are your feet in their shoes, O king's daughter! The curves of your legs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a good workman: 1 How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman's hands.
2 Your stomach is a store of grain with lilies round it, and in the middle a round cup full of wine. 2 Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies.
3 Your two breasts are like two young roes of the same birth. 3 Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck is as a tower of ivory; your eyes like the waters in Heshbon, by the doorway of Bath-rabbim; your nose is as the tower on Lebanon looking over Damascus: 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon looking toward Damascus.
5 Your head is like Carmel, and the hair of your head is like purple, in whose net the king is prisoner. 5 Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses.
6 How beautiful and how sweet you are, O love, for delight. 6 How beautiful you are and how pleasing, O love, with your delights!
7 You are tall like a palm-tree, and your breasts are like the fruit of the vine. 7 Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
8 I said, Let me go up the palm-tree, and let me take its branches in my hands: your breasts will be as the fruit of the vine, and the smell of your breath like apples; 8 I said, "I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit." May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples,
9 And the roof of your mouth like good wine flowing down smoothly for my loved one, moving gently over my lips and my teeth. 9 and your mouth like the best wine. May the wine go straight to my lover, flowing gently over lips and teeth.
10 I am for my loved one, and his desire is for me. 10 I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me.
11 Come, my loved one, let us go out into the field; let us take rest among the cypress-trees. 11 Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages.
12 Let us go out early to the vine-gardens; let us see if the vine is in bud, if it has put out its young fruit, and the pomegranate is in flower. There I will give you my love. 12 Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom-- there I will give you my love.
13 The mandrakes give out a sweet smell, and at our doors are all sorts of good fruits, new and old, which I have kept for my loved one. 13 The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover.
