2 I am a rose1 of Sharon,
ka lily of the valleys.
so is lmy love among the young women.
so is my mbeloved among the young men.
With great delight I sat nin his shadow,
and his ofruit was sweet to my taste.
and his qbanner over me was love.
5 Sustain me with rraisins;
sfor I am sick with love.
6 His tleft hand is under my head,
and his right hand uembraces me!
by xthe gazelles or the does of the field,
leaping yover the mountains,
9 My beloved is like za gazelle
a“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
bthe rain is over and gone.
12 cThe flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing4 has come,
and the voice of dthe turtledove
13 eThe fig tree ripens its figs,
and fthe vines are in blossom;
gArise, my love, my beautiful one,
let me jhear your voice,
and your face is klovely.
ffor our vineyards are in blossom.”
16 mMy beloved is mine, and I am his;
17 Until othe day breathes
and pthe shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, be like qa gazelle
or a young stag on cleft mountains.7
