She

16 My beloved is mine and I am his;z

he browses among the lilies.a

17 Until the day breaks

and the shadows flee,b

turn, my beloved,c

and be like a gazelle

or like a young stagd

on the rugged hills.d e

3 All night long on my bed

I lookedf for the one my heart loves;

I looked for him but did not find him.

I will get up now and go about the city,

through its streets and squares;

I will search for the one my heart loves.

So I looked for him but did not find him.

The watchmen found me

as they made their rounds in the city.g

“Have you seen the one my heart loves?”

Scarcely had I passed them

when I found the one my heart loves.

I held him and would not let him go

till I had brought him to my mother’s house,h

to the room of the one who conceived me.i

Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge youj

by the gazelles and by the does of the field:

Do not arouse or awaken love

until it so desires.k

Who is this coming up from the wildernessl

like a column of smoke,

perfumed with myrrhm and incense

made from all the spicesn of the merchant?

Look! It is Solomon’s carriage,

escorted by sixty warriors,o

the noblest of Israel,

all of them wearing the sword,

all experienced in battle,

each with his sword at his side,

prepared for the terrors of the night.p

King Solomon made for himself the carriage;

he made it of wood from Lebanon.

10 Its posts he made of silver,

its base of gold.

Its seat was upholstered with purple,

its interior inlaid with love.

Daughters of Jerusalem, 11 come out,

and look, you daughters of Zion.q

Looka on King Solomon wearing a crown,

the crown with which his mother crowned him

on the day of his wedding,

the day his heart rejoiced.r
