RSV 1 The Song of Songs, which is Solomon's. NIV 1 Solomon's Song of Songs. RSV 2 O that you would kiss me with the kisses of your mouth! For your love is better than wine, NIV 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth-- for your love is more delightful than wine. RSV 3 your anointing oils are fragrant, your name is oil poured out; therefore the maidens love you. NIV 3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! RSV 4 Draw me after you, let us make haste. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will exult and rejoice in you; we will extol your love more than wine; rightly do they love you. NIV 4 Take me away with you--let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.

RSV 5 I am very dark, but comely, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon. NIV 5 Dark am I, yet lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon. RSV 6 Do not gaze at me because I am swarthy, because the sun has scorched me. My mother's sons were angry with me, they made me keeper of the vineyards; but, my own vineyard I have not kept! NIV 6 Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun. My mother's sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I have neglected. RSV 7 Tell me, you whom my soul loves, where you pasture your flock, where you make it lie down at noon; for why should I be like one who wanders beside the flocks of your companions? NIV 7 Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock and where you rest your sheep at midday. Why should I be like a veiled woman beside the flocks of your friends?
