3 On my bed rby night
I sought shim whom my soul loves;
tI sought him, but found him not.
in uthe streets and in the squares;
I will seek shim whom my soul loves.
3 vThe watchmen found me
when I found shim whom my soul loves.
I wheld him, and would not let him go
until I had xbrought him into my mother's house,
and into the chamber of yher who conceived me.
bby the gazelles or the does of the field,
6 cWhat is that coming up from the wilderness
like dcolumns of smoke,
perfumed with emyrrh and frankincense,
7 Behold, it is the litter1 of Solomon!
each with his hsword at his thigh,
against iterror by night.
9 King Solomon made himself a carriage2
by jthe daughters of Jerusalem.
11 Go out, O kdaughters of Zion,
on lthe day of his wedding,
