Song of Solomon 1
The Young Shulammite Bride and Jerusalem's Daughters

Song of Solomon 1:1
The Song of Songs,
which is Solomon's.

Song of Solomon 1:2
May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth.
For your love is better than wine.

Song of Solomon 1:3
Your oils have a pleasing fragrance,
Your name is like purified oil;
Therefore the maidens love you.

Song of Solomon 1:4
Draw me after you and let us run together.
The king has brought me into his chambers.
We will rejoice in you and be glad;
We will extol your love more than wine.
Rightly do they love you."

Song of Solomon 1:5
I am black but lovely,
O daughters of Jerusalem,
Like the tents of Kedar,
Like the curtains of Solomon.

Song of Solomon 1:6
Do not stare at me because I am swarthy,
For the sun has burned me.
My mother's sons were angry with me;
They made me caretaker of the vineyards,
But I have not taken care of my own vineyard.

Song of Solomon 1:7
Tell me,
O you whom my soul loves,
Where do you pasture your flock,
Where do you make it lie down at noon
For why should I be like one who veils herself Beside the flocks of your companions
the Lover,

Song of Solomon 1:8
If you yourself do not know,
Most beautiful among women,
Go forth on the trail of the flock And pasture your young goats By the tents of the shepherds.

Song of Solomon 1:9
To me,
my darling,
you are like My mare among the chariots of Pharaoh.

Song of Solomon 1:10
Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments,
Your neck with strings of beads.

Song of Solomon 1:11
We will make for you ornaments of gold With beads of silver."

Song of Solomon 1:12
While the king was at his table,
My perfume gave forth its fragrance.

Song of Solomon 1:13
My beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh Which lies all night between my breasts.

Song of Solomon 1:14
My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms In the vineyards of Engedi.

Song of Solomon 1:15
How beautiful you are,
my darling,
How beautiful you are
Your eyes are like doves."

Song of Solomon 1:16
How handsome you are,
my beloved,
And so pleasant!
our couch is luxuriant!

Song of Solomon 1:17
The beams of our houses are cedars,
Our rafters,

Song of Solomon 2
The Bride's Admiration

Song of Solomon 2:1
I am the rose of Sharon,
The lily of the valleys.

Song of Solomon 2:2
Like a lily among the thorns,
So is my darling among the maidens."

Song of Solomon 2:3
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
So is my beloved among the young men.
In his shade I took great delight and sat down,
And his fruit was sweet to my taste.

Song of Solomon 2:4
He has brought me to his banquet hall,
And his banner over me is love.

Song of Solomon 2:5
Sustain me with raisin cakes,
Refresh me with apples,
Because I am lovesick.

Song of Solomon 2:6
Let his left hand be under my head And his right hand embrace me."

Song of Solomon 2:7
I adjure you,
O daughters of Jerusalem,
By the gazelles or by the hinds of the field,
That you do not arouse or awaken my love Until she pleases."

Song of Solomon 2:8
My beloved! Behold,
he is coming,
Climbing on the mountains,
Leaping on the hills.

Song of Solomon 2:9
My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
he is standing behind our wall,
He is looking through the windows,
He is peering through the lattice.

Song of Solomon 2:10
My beloved responded and said to me,
my darling,
my beautiful one,
And come along.

Song of Solomon 2:11
For behold,
the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.

Song of Solomon 2:12
The flowers have already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.

Song of Solomon 2:13
The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.
my darling,
my beautiful one,
And come along.

Song of Solomon 2:14
O my dove,
in the clefts of the rock,
In the secret place of the steep pathway,
Let me see your form,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet,
And your form is lovely.

Song of Solomon 2:15
Catch the foxes for us,
The little foxes that are ruining the vineyards,
While our vineyards are in blossom."

Song of Solomon 2:16
My beloved is mine,
and I am his;
He pastures his flock among the lilies.

Song of Solomon 2:17
Until the cool of the day when the shadows flee away,
my beloved,
and be like a gazelle Or a young stag on the mountains of Bether.
