Song of Solomon 2:15–3:11

151aCatch the foxes for us,

The 2little foxes that are ruining the vineyards,

While our bvineyards are in blossom.”

161aMy beloved is mine, and I am his;

He bpastures his flock among the lilies.

17 “aUntil 1the cool of the day when the shadows flee away,

Turn, my beloved, and be like a bgazelle

Or a young stag con the mountains of 2Bether.”

Chapter 3

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.”

51I aadjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem,

By the bgazelles or by the hinds of the field,

That you will not arouse or awaken my love

Until 2she pleases.”

Solomon’s Wedding Day

61, 2aWhat is this coming up from the wilderness

Like bcolumns of smoke,

Perfumed with cmyrrh and dfrankincense,

With all scented powders of the merchant?

7 “Behold, it is the traveling couch of Solomon;

Sixty mighty men around it,

Of the mighty men of Israel.

8 “All of them are wielders of the sword,

aExpert in war;

Each man has his bsword at his side,

Guarding against the 1cterrors of the night.

9 “King Solomon has made for himself a sedan chair

From the timber of Lebanon.

10 “He made its posts of silver,

Its 1back of gold

And its seat of purple fabric,

With its interior lovingly fitted out

By the adaughters of Jerusalem.

11 “Go forth, O adaughters of Zion,

And gaze on King Solomon with the 1crown

With which his mother has crowned him

On the bday of his wedding,

And on the day of his gladness of heart.”
