022: Song of Solomon Book 22


022:Song of Solomon 001:001
The song of songs,
which is Solomon's.


022:001:002
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth:
for thy love is better than wine.


022:001:003
Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth,
therefore do the virgins love thee.


022:001:004
Draw me,
we will run after thee:
the king hath brought me into his chambers:
we will be glad and rejoice in thee,
we will remember thy love more than wine:
the upright love thee.


022:001:005
I am black,
but comely,
O ye daughters of Jerusalem,
as the tents of Kedar,
as the curtains of Solomon.


022:001:006
Look not upon me,
because I am black,
because the sun hath looked upon me:
my mother's children were angry with me;
they made me the keeper of the vineyards;
but mine own vineyard have I not kept.


022:001:007
Tell me,
O thou whom my soul loveth,
where thou feedest,
where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon:
for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?


022:001:008
If thou know not,
O thou fairest among women,
go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock,
and feed thy kids beside the shepherds' tents.


022:001:009
I have compared thee,
O my love,
to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots.


022:001:010
Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels,
thy neck with chains of gold.


022:001:011
We will make thee borders of gold with studs of silver.


022:001:012
While the king sitteth at his table,
my spikenard sendeth forth the smell thereof.


022:001:013
A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me;
he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.


022:001:014
My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.


022:001:015
Behold,
thou art fair,
my love;
behold,
thou art fair;
thou hast doves' eyes.


022:001:016
Behold,
thou art fair,
my beloved,
yea,
pleasant:
also our bed is green.


022:001:017
The beams of our house are cedar,
and our rafters of fir.
