4 How beautiful you are, my darling!
Oh, how beautiful!
Your hair is like a flock of goats
descending from the hills of Gilead.u
coming up from the washing.
Each has its twin;
not one of them is alone.v
Your temples behind your veil
are like the halves of a pomegranate.y
4 Your neck is like the towerz of David,
built with courses of stonea;
on it hang a thousand shields,a
all of them shields of warriors.
5 Your breastsb are like two fawns,
like twin fawns of a gazellec
that browse among the lilies.d
and the shadows flee,e
I will go to the mountain of myrrhf
and to the hill of incense.
7 You are altogether beautiful,g my darling;
there is no flawh in you.
8 Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,i
come with me from Lebanon.
Descend from the crest of Amana,
from the lions’ dens
and the mountain haunts of leopards.
9 You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride;l
you have stolen my heart
with one glance of your eyes,
with one jewel of your necklace.m
How much more pleasing is your love than wine,p
and the fragrance of your perfumeq
more than any spice!
milk and honey are under your tongue.r
The fragrance of your garments
is like the fragrance of Lebanon.s
you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.v
13 Your plants are an orchard of pomegranatesw
with choice fruits,
with hennax and nard,
calamus and cinnamon,y
with every kind of incense tree,
and all the finest spices.b
a well of flowing water
streaming down from Lebanon.
16 Awake, north wind,
and come, south wind!
Blow on my garden,e
that its fragrancef may spread everywhere.
Let my belovedg come into his garden
and taste its choice fruits.h
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice.
I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey;
I have drunk my wine and my milk.k
Eat, friends, and drink;
drink your fill of love.
