Song of Solomon 3

JUB 1 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but I did not find him. 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. JUB 2 I will rise now and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but I 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. JUB 3 The watchmen that go about the city found me, <em>to whom I said</em>, Have ye seen him whom my soul loves? NIV 3 The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city. “Have you seen the one my heart loves?” JUB 4 <em>It was</em> but a little that I passed from them that I found him whom my soul loves: I held him and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother’s house and into the chamber of her that brought me into the light. 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. JUB 5 I charge you, O ye virgins of Jerusalem, by the roes and by the hinds of the field, that ye not awake nor stir up love, until he pleases. 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. JUB 6 Who <em>is</em> she that rises out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense and with all <em>the</em> aromatic powders? NIV 6 Who is this coming up from the wilderness like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and incense made from all the spices of the merchant? JUB 7 Behold <em>it</em> is the bed of Solomon; sixty valiant men <em>are</em> about it of the valiant of Israel. NIV 7 Look! It is Solomon’s carriage, escorted by sixty warriors, the noblest of Israel, JUB 8 They all hold swords, <em>being</em> expert in war; each one <em>has</em> his sword upon his thigh because of the fears of 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. JUB 9 King Solomon made himself a palanquin of the wood of Lebanon. NIV 9 King Solomon made for himself the carriage; he made it of wood from Lebanon. JUB 10 He made its pillars <em>of</em> silver, the bottom of it <em>of</em> gold, the covering of it <em>of</em> purple, its interior being paved <em>with</em> love, for the virgins of Jerusalem. NIV 10 Its posts he made of silver, its base of gold. Its seat was upholstered with purple, its interior inlaid with love. Daughters of Jerusalem, JUB 11 Go forth, O ye virgins of Zion, and behold King Solomon with the crown with which his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart. NIV 11 come out, and look, you daughters of Zion. Look on King Solomon wearing a crown, the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding, the day his heart rejoiced.
