Song of Solomon 1:9 – 2:7

Colloquy of Bridegroom, Friends, and Bride


9 I compare you, my love,
   to a mare among Pharaoh’s chariots.
10 Your cheeks are comely with ornaments,
   your neck with strings of jewels.
11 We will make you ornaments of gold,
   studded with silver.


12 While the king was on his couch,
   my nard gave forth its fragrance.
13 My beloved is to me a bag of myrrh
   that lies between my breasts.
14 My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms
   in the vineyards of En-gedi.


15 Ah, you are beautiful, my love;
   ah, you are beautiful;
   your eyes are doves.
16 Ah, you are beautiful, my beloved,
   truly lovely.
Our couch is green;
17   the beams of our house are cedar,
   our rafters* are pine.

2I am a rose* of Sharon,
   a lily of the valleys.


2 As a lily among brambles,
   so is my love among maidens.


3 As an apple tree among the trees of the wood,
   so is my beloved among young men.
With great delight I sat in his shadow,
   and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
4 He brought me to the banqueting house,
   and his intention towards me was love.
5 Sustain me with raisins,
   refresh me with apples;
   for I am faint with love.
6 O that his left hand were under my head,
   and that his right hand embraced me!
7 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
   by the gazelles or the wild does:
do not stir up or awaken love
   until it is ready!
