The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
12 Dear lover and friend, you're a secret garden, a private and pure fountain. 12 You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.
13 Body and soul, you are paradise, a whole orchard of succulent fruits - Ripe apricots and peaches, oranges and pears; Nut trees and cinnamon, and all scented woods; 13 Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates with choice fruits, with henna and nard,
14 Mint and lavender, and all herbs aromatic; 14 nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of incense tree, with myrrh and aloes and all the finest spices.
15 A garden fountain, sparkling and splashing, fed by spring waters from the Lebanon mountains. 15 You are a garden fountain, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon.
16 Wake up, North Wind, get moving, South Wind! Breathe on my garden, fill the air with spice fragrance. Oh, let my lover enter his garden! Yes, let him eat the fine, ripe fruits. 16 Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread abroad. Let my lover come into his garden and taste its choice fruits.
