And the clily of the valleys.
2 As the clily among thorns,
So is dmy love among the daughters.
3 As the eapple tree among the trees of the wood,
So is my beloved among the sons.
And his banner over me was love.
For lI am sick of love.
6 mHis left hand is under my head,
mAnd his right hand doth embrace me.
That ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.
Leaping supon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
Behold, he standeth behind our wall,
He vlooketh forth at the windows,
†Shewing himself through the lattice.
10 My beloved wspake, and said unto me,
The rain is over and gone;
The time of the singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the yturtle is heard in our land;
aArise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Let me see thy countenance, flet me hear thy voice;
For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is gcomely.
15 Take us the hfoxes,
The little foxes, that spoil the vines:
For our vines have ztender grapes.
16 iMy beloved is mine, and I am his:
He kfeedeth among the lilies.
17 lUntil the day break, and the shadows flee away,
Turn, my beloved,
And mbe thou like a roe or a young hart
