5 aI am come into my garden, bmy sister, my spouse:

I have cgathered my dmyrrh with my spice;

eI have eaten my fhoneycomb with my honey;

gI have drunk my wine with my milk:

Eat, O hfriends; drink, ||yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.

I sleep, but my heart waketh:

It is the voice of my beloved that iknocketh, ksaying,

Open to me, bmy sister, lmy love, mmy dove, nmy undefiled:

For my head is filled with dew,

And my olocks with the pdrops of the night.

qI have put off my coat; qqhow shall I put it on?

I have rwashed my feet; how shall I defile them?

My beloved put in his hand by sthe hole of the door,

And tmy bowels were moved ||for him.

I rose up to open to my beloved;

And my hands dropped with myrrh,

And my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh,

Upon the handles of the lock.

I opened to my beloved;

But my beloved had uwithdrawn himself, and was gone:

My soul failed wwhen he spake:

xI sought him, but I could not find him;

yI called him, but he gave me no answer.

zThe watchmen that went about the city found me,

They asmote me, they wounded me;

The keepers of the walls took away my bveil from me.

cI charge you, dO daughters of Jerusalem,

If ye find my beloved, that ye tell him,

That eI am sick of love.

What is thy beloved more than another beloved, fO thou fairest among women?

What is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so ccharge us?

10  My beloved is white and ruddy,

The gchiefest among ten thousand.

11  His head is as hthe most ifine gold,

His klocks are ||bushy, and black as a raven.

12  lHis eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters,

Washed with milk, and fitly set.

13  nHis cheeks are as a obed of spices, as ||sweet flowers:

pHis lips like qlilies, dropping rsweet smelling myrrh.

14  His hands are as gold rings mset with the sberyl:

His belly is as bright ivory overlaid with tsapphires.

15  uHis legs are as xpillars of marble, set upon sockets of ifine gold:

His countenance is as yLebanon, excellent as the ycedars.

16  His mouth is zmost sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely.

This is my beloved, and this is my friend, dO daughters of Jerusalem.
