Song of Solomon 3:1–4

The Bride’s Troubled Dream

11On my bed night after night I sought him

aWhom my soul loves;

I bsought him but did not find him.

2 ‘1I must arise now and 1go about the city;

In the astreets and in the squares

2I must seek him whom my soul loves.’

I sought him but did not find him.

3 “aThe watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,

And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’

4 “aScarcely had I 1left them

When I found him whom my soul loves;

I bheld on to him and would not let him go

Until I had cbrought him to my mother’s house,

And into the room of her who conceived me.”
