Song of Songs

VIN(i) 1 (OMITTED TEXT) 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; for your love is better than wine. 3 Because of the fragrance of your good ointments your name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love you. 4 Take me away with you. Let us hurry. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will be glad and rejoice in you. We will praise your love more than wine. They are right to love you. 5 Black am I, yet comely, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon. 6 Do not stare at me because I am dark, because the sun has scorched me. My mother's sons were angry with me. They made me keeper of the vineyards. I haven't kept my own vineyard. 7 Tell me, you whom my soul loves, where you graze your flock, where you rest them at noon; for why should I be as one who is veiled beside the flocks of your companions? 8 If you do not know, most beautiful among women, follow the tracks of the sheep. Graze your young goats beside the shepherds' tents. 9 I compare you, O my friend, to a mare of the chariots of Paroh: 10 Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings, your neck with strings of jewels. 11 We will make you earrings of gold, with studs of silver. 12 While the king sat at his table, my perfume spread its fragrance. 13 My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh, that lies between my breasts. 14 My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of En Gedi. 15 Look, you are beautiful, my love. Look, you are beautiful. Your eyes are doves. 16 See, you are fair, my loved one, and a pleasure; our bed is green. 17 The beams of our house are cedars, our rafters are firs.
