Song of Solomon 4:1–7

How beautiful you are, my darling.

How very beautiful!

Behind your veil,

your eyes are doves.d

Your hair is like a flock of goats

streaming down Mount Gilead.e

Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn sheep

coming up from washing,

each one bearing twins,

and none has lost its young.C,f

Your lips are like a scarlet cord,g

and your mouthD is lovely.

Behind your veil,

your browE is like a slice of pomegranate.h

Your neck is like the tower of David,i

constructed in layers.

A thousand shields are hung on it—

all of them shields of warriors.

Your breasts are like two fawns,

twins of a gazelle,j that feed among the lilies.

Until the day breaksF

and the shadows flee,k

I will make my way to the mountain of myrrh

and the hill of frankincense.l

You are absolutely beautiful,m my darling;

there is no imperfection in you.
