Song of Solomon 5:1-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible



1 I have come into my garden,1 my sister, my bride;2 I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk.3 Eat, O friends, and drink; drink your fill, O lovers.


2 I slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My lover is knocking: "Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove,4 my flawless5 one.6 My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night." 3 I have taken off my robe-- must I put it on again? I have washed my feet-- must I soil them again? 4 My lover thrust his hand through the latch-opening; my heart began to pound for him. 5 I arose to open for my lover, and my hands dripped with myrrh,7 my fingers with flowing myrrh, on the handles of the lock. 6 I opened for my lover,8 but my lover had left; he was gone.9 My heart sank at his departure.a I looked10 for him but did not find him. I called him but he did not answer. 7 The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city.11 They beat me, they bruised me; they took away my cloak, those watchmen of the walls! 8 O daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you12-- if you find my lover,13 what will you tell him? Tell him I am faint with love.14
