Song of Solomon 3

NLT 1 One night as I lay in bed, I yearned for my lover. I yearned for him, but he did not come. NIV 1 All night long on my bed I looked for the one my heart loves; I looked for him but did not find him. NLT 2 So I said to myself, “I will get up and roam the city, searching in all its streets and squares. I will search for the one I love.” So I searched everywhere but did not find him. NIV 2 I will get up now and go about the city, through its streets and squares; I will search for the one my heart loves. So I looked for him but did not find him. NLT 3 The watchmen stopped me as they made their rounds, and I asked, “Have you seen the one I love?” NIV 3 The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city. "Have you seen the one my heart loves?" NLT 4 Then scarcely had I left them when I found my love! I caught and held him tightly, then I brought him to my mother’s house, into my mother’s bed, where I had been conceived. NIV 4 Scarcely had I passed them when I found the one my heart loves. I held him and would not let him go till I had brought him to my mother's house, to the room of the one who conceived me. NLT 5 Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and wild deer, not to awaken love until the time is right. NIV 5 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. NLT 6 Who is this sweeping in from the wilderness like a cloud of smoke? Who is it, fragrant with myrrh and frankincense and every kind of spice? NIV 6 Who is this coming up from the desert like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and incense made from all the spices of the merchant? NLT 7 Look, it is Solomon’s carriage, surrounded by sixty heroic men, the best of Israel’s soldiers. NIV 7 Look! It is Solomon's carriage, escorted by sixty warriors, the noblest of Israel, NLT 8 They are all skilled swordsmen, experienced warriors. Each wears a sword on his thigh, ready to defend the king against an attack in the night. NIV 8 all of them wearing the sword, all experienced in battle, each with his sword at his side, prepared for the terrors of the night. NLT 9 King Solomon’s carriage is built of wood imported from Lebanon. NIV 9 King Solomon made for himself the carriage; he made it of wood from Lebanon. NLT 10 Its posts are silver, its canopy gold; its cushions are purple. It was decorated with love by the young women of Jerusalem. NIV 10 Its posts he made of silver, its base of gold. Its seat was upholstered with purple, its interior lovingly inlaid by the daughters of Jerusalem. NLT 11 Come out to see King Solomon, young women of Jerusalem. He wears the crown his mother gave him on his wedding day, his most joyous day. NIV 11 Come out, you daughters of Zion, and look at King Solomon wearing the crown, the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding, the day his heart rejoiced.
