022:004:001
Behold,
thou art fair,
my love;
behold,
thou art fair;
thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks:
thy hair is as a flock of goats,
that appear from mount Gilead.


022:004:002
Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn,
which came up from the washing;
whereof every one bear twins,
and none is barren among them.


022:004:003
Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet,
and thy speech is comely:
thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within thy locks.


022:004:004
Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury,
whereon there hang a thousand bucklers,
all shields of mighty men.


022:004:005
Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins,
which feed among the lilies.


022:004:006
Until the day break,
and the shadows flee away,
I will get me to the mountain of myrrh,
and to the hill of frankincense.


022:004:007
Thou art all fair,
my love;
there is no spot in thee.


022:004:008
Come with me from Lebanon,
my spouse,
with me from Lebanon:
look from the top of Amana,
from the top of Shenir and Hermon,
from the lions' dens,
from the mountains of the leopards.


022:004:009
Thou hast ravished my heart,
my sister,
my spouse;
thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes,
with one chain of thy neck.


022:004:010
How fair is thy love,
my sister,
my spouse!
how much better is thy love than wine!
and the smell of thine ointments than all spices!


022:004:011
Thy lips,
O my spouse,
drop as the honeycomb:
honey and milk are under thy tongue;
and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.


022:004:012
A garden inclosed is my sister,
my spouse;
a spring shut up,
a fountain sealed.


022:004:013
Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates,
with pleasant fruits;
camphire,
with spikenard,


022:004:014
Spikenard and saffron;
calamus and cinnamon,
with all trees of frankincense;
myrrh and aloes,
with all the chief spices:


022:004:015
A fountain of gardens,
a well of living waters,
and streams from Lebanon.


022:004:016
Awake,
O north wind;
and come,
thou south;
blow upon my garden,
that the spices thereof may flow out.
Let my beloved come into his garden,
and eat his pleasant fruits.
