31Like an 2aapple tree among the trees of the forest,

So is my beloved among the 3young men.

In his shade I took great delight and sat down,

And his bfruit was sweet to my 4taste.

4 “He has abrought me to his 1banquet hall,

And his bbanner over me is love.

5 “Sustain me with araisin cakes,

Refresh me with 1bapples,

Because cI am lovesick.

6 “Let ahis left hand be under my head

And ahis right hand bembrace me.”

71I aadjure you, O bdaughters of Jerusalem,

By the cgazelles or by the dhinds of the field,

aThat you do not arouse or awaken my love

Until 2she pleases.”

81Listen! My beloved!

Behold, he is coming,

Climbing aon the mountains,

Leaping on the hills!

9 “My beloved is like a agazelle or a byoung 1stag.

Behold, he is standing behind our wall,

He is looking through the windows,

He is peering cthrough the lattice.

10 “My beloved responded and said to me,

aArise, my darling, my beautiful one,

And come along.

11 ‘For behold, the winter is past,

The rain is over and gone.

12 ‘The flowers have already appeared in the land;

The time has arrived for 1pruning the vines,

And the voice of the aturtledove has been heard in our land.

13 ‘The afig tree has ripened its figs,

And the bvines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,

And come along!’ ”
