Song of Songs

LITV(i) 1 The song of songs which is Solomon's. 2 Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth; for Your loves are better than wine. 3 For Your ointments have a lovely fragrance; Your name is as ointment poured out; on account of this the virgins love You. 4 Draw me; we will run after You. The King has brought me into His chambers. We will be glad and rejoice in You; we will remember Your loves more than wine; the upright love You. 5 I am black, but comely, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon. 6 Do not look at me, that I am black, that the sun has looked on me. My mother's sons were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but my own vineyard I have not kept. 7 Tell me, You whom my soul loves, where do You feed; where do You lie down at noon? For why should I be as one who is veiled beside the flocks of Your companions? 8 If you yourself do not know, most beautiful among women, go in the footsteps of the flock. And feed your kids beside the tents of the shepherds. 9 O My love, I have compared you to My mares in Pharaoh's chariots. 10 Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, your neck with chains of beads . 11 We will make you ornaments of gold with studs of silver. 12 While the King is in His circle, my spikenard gives its fragrance. 13 A bundle of myrrh is my Beloved to me. He shall lie between my breasts. 14 My Beloved is to me like a cluster of henna in the vineyards of Engedi. 15 Behold, you are beautiful, My love. Behold, you are beautiful; your eyes as doves'. 16 Behold, you are beautiful, my Beloved; yea, pleasant. Also our couch is green. 17 The beams of our house are cedars; our rafters are of firs.
