You have not started any reading plans.
behold, you are beautiful!
Your eyes are doves
behind your veil.
Your hair is like a flock of goats,
moving down the slopes of Gilead.
that have come up from the washing,
all of which bear twins,
and not one among them is bereaved.
and your mouth is lovely.
Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
behind your veil.
built for an arsenal,i
whereon hang a thousand bucklers,
all of them shields of warriors.
twins of a gazelle,
and the shadows flee,
I will hie me to the mountain of myrrh
and the hill of frankincense.
there is no flaw in you.
come with me from Lebanon.
Departj from the peak of Amana,
from the peak of Senir and Hermon,
from the dens of lions,
from the mountains of leopards.
you have ravished my heart with a glance of your eyes,
with one jewel of your necklace.
how much better is your love than wine,
and the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
honey and milk are under your tongue;
the scent of your garments is like the scent of Lebanon.
a garden locked, a fountain sealed.
with all choicest fruits,
henna with nard,
with all trees of frankincense,
myrrh and aloes,
with all chief spices—
and flowing streams from Lebanon.
and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden,
let its fragrance be wafted abroad.
Let my beloved come to his garden,
and eat its choicest fruits.
