1 The Song of aSongs, which is Solomon's.
For your blove is better than wine;
3 your canointing oils are fragrant;
your dname is oil poured out;
gThe king has brought me into his chambers.
We will hexult and rejoice in you;
we will extol byour love more than wine;
5 I am very dark, but ilovely,
O jdaughters of Jerusalem,
My mmother's sons were angry with me;
but pmy own vineyard I have not kept!
7 Tell me, you qwhom my soul loves,
where you rpasture your flock,
where you make it slie down at noon;
beside the flocks of your tcompanions?
O umost beautiful among women,
9 I compare you, vmy love,
to wa mare among Pharaoh's chariots.
10 xYour cheeks are lovely with ornaments,
11 We will make for you2 ornaments of gold,
12 While ythe king was on his couch,
my znard gave forth its fragrance.
13 My beloved is to me a sachet of amyrrh
14 My beloved is to me a cluster of bhenna blossoms
in the vineyards of cEngedi.
your geyes are doves.
17 the beams of our house are jcedar;
our rafters are jpine.
