4 aBehold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair;
2 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.
4 mThy neck is like the tower of David
Builded for an narmoury,
Which sfeed among the lilies.
From the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the cleopards.
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!
hHoney and milk are under thy tongue;
And the smell of thy garments is jlike the smell of Lebanon.
14 pSpikenard and saffron;
15 A fountain of gardens, a well of uliving waters,
And streams from Lebanon.
xBlow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out.
yLet my beloved come into his garden,
