4 aBehold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair;

Thou hast doves’ eyes bwithin thy bclocks:

dThy hair is as a flock of egoats, ||dthat appear from mount fGilead.

gThy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing;

gWhereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.

Thy lips are like a hthread of scarlet, and thy speech is icomely:

kThy temples are like a piece of a klpomegranate bwithin thy clocks.

mThy neck is like the tower of David

Builded for an narmoury,

Whereon there ohang a thousand bucklers, all pshields of mighty men.

qThy two breasts are like two ryoung qroes that are twins,

Which sfeed among the lilies.

tUntil the day break, and uthe shadows flee away,

I will get me to the mountain of wmyrrh, and to the hill of wfrankincense.

aThou art all fair, my love; there is xno spot in thee.

Come with me from yLebanon, my zspouse, with me from Lebanon:

Look from the top of aAmana, from the top of bShenir and bHermon,

From the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the cleopards.

Thou hast ||ravished my heart, dmy sister, my spouse;

Thou hast ||ravished my heart with one of thine eyes,

With eone chain of thy neck.

10  How fair is thy love, dmy sister, my spouse!

How much fbetter is thy love than wine!

And gthe smell of thine ointments than all spices!

11  hThy lips, O my spouse, drop as the ihoneycomb:

hHoney and milk are under thy tongue;

And the smell of thy garments is jlike the smell of Lebanon.

12  A garden inclosed is dmy sister, my spouse;

A spring shut up, ka fountain lsealed.

13  Thy plants are an morchard of npomegranates, with opleasant fruits;

||Camphire, with pspikenard,

14  pSpikenard and saffron;

qCalamus and qcinnamon, with all trees of rfrankincense;

qrsMyrrh and saloes, with all the qtchief spices:

15  A fountain of gardens, a well of uliving waters,

And streams from Lebanon.

16  Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south;

xBlow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out.

yLet my beloved come into his garden,

And zeat his opleasant fruits.
