Song of Solomon 5:10–16

The Shulamite

10 My beloved is white and ruddy,

7Chief among ten thousand.

11 His head is like the finest gold;

His locks are wavy,

And black as a raven.

12 iHis eyes are like doves

By the rivers of waters,

Washed with milk,

And 8fitly set.

13 His cheeks are like a bed of spices,

Banks of scented herbs.

His lips are lilies,

Dripping liquid myrrh.

14 His hands are rods of gold

Set with beryl.

His body is carved ivory

Inlaid with sapphires.

15 His legs are pillars of marble

Set on bases of fine gold.

His countenance is like Lebanon,

Excellent as the cedars.

16 His mouth is most sweet,

Yes, he is altogether lovely.

This is my beloved,

And this is my friend,

O daughters of Jerusalem!
