Song of Solomon 4

Solomon Admires His Bride’s Beauty
1Behold, #See ch. 1:15 you are beautiful, my love,
behold, you are beautiful!
# ch. 1:15; 5:12 Your eyes are doves
# ch. 6:7 behind your veil.
# ch. 6:5; [ch. 7:5] Your hair is like a flock of goats
leaping down #Mic. 7:14the slopes of Gilead.
2Your #ch. 6:6teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes
that have come up from the washing,
all of which bear twins,
and not one among them has lost its young.
3Your lips are like #[Josh. 2:18] a scarlet thread,
and your mouth is #ch. 1:5; 2:14 lovely.
Your #ch. 6:7 cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
# [See ver. 1 above] behind your veil.
4Your #[ch. 7:4] neck is like the tower of David,
built in #Neh. 3:19 rows of stone;#4:4 The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain
on it #[Ezek. 27:10, 11] hang a thousand shields,
all of #[2 Sam. 1:21]them shields of warriors.
5Your #ch. 7:3; [ch. 8:10; Prov. 5:19] two breasts are like two #See ch. 2:9 fawns,
twins of a gazelle,
that #ch. 2:16; 6:3graze among the lilies.
6 # ch. 2:17 Until the day breathes
and the shadows flee,
I will go away to the mountain of #ver. 14; [ch. 3:6]myrrh
and the hill of #ver. 14; [ch. 3:6]frankincense.
7 # See ch. 1:15 You are altogether beautiful, my love;
there is no #ch. 5:2; [Eph. 5:27]flaw in you.
8 # [Ps. 45:10, 11] Come with me from #ch. 7:4; See 1 Kgs. 4:33 Lebanon, my #[Isa. 62:5] bride;
come with me from #ch. 7:4; See 1 Kgs. 4:33 Lebanon.
Depart#4:8 Or Look from the peak of Amana,
from the peak of #Deut. 3:9; 1 Chr. 5:23 Senir and #Ps. 89:12Hermon,
from the dens of lions,
from the mountains of leopards.
9You have captivated my heart, my #ch. 5:1, 2 sister, my bride;
you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
with one #[Judg. 8:26]jewel of your necklace.
10How beautiful is your love, my #[See ver. 9 above] sister, my bride!
How much #ch. 1:2, 4 better is your love than wine,
and #[ch. 1:3]the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
11Your #[Prov. 5:3] lips drip nectar, my bride;
# Prov. 24:13 honey and milk are under your tongue;
the fragrance of your garments is #Hos. 14:6; [Gen. 27:27] like the fragrance of #[See ver. 8 above]Lebanon.
12A garden locked is my #[See ver. 9 above] sister, my bride,
a spring locked, #[Gen. 29:3; Dan. 6:17] a fountain #[Prov. 5:15]sealed.
13Your shoots are #Eccles. 2:5 an orchard of pomegranates
with all #ch. 7:13 choicest fruits,
# ch. 1:14 henna with #See ch. 1:12nard,
14nard and saffron, #Ex. 30:23 calamus and #Ex. 30:23 cinnamon,
with all trees of #ver. 6 frankincense,
# See ch. 3:6 myrrh and #John 19:39aloes,
with all #Ex. 30:23 choice spices—
15a garden fountain, a well of #Jer. 2:13; [John 4:10; 7:38] living water,
and flowing streams from #[See ver. 8 above]Lebanon.
16Awake, O north wind,
and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my #[ch. 5:1; 6:2] garden,
let its spices flow.
Together in the Garden of Love
# [ch. 6:2] Let my beloved come to his #ch. 6:2 garden,
and eat its #[See ver. 13 above]choicest fruits.
