|1||I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.||rose of Sharon|
|2||As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.|
|3||As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.|
|4||He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.||banner|
|5||Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.||flagons|
|6||His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.|
I charge you, O ye daughters of
Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not
up, nor awake my love, till he please.
|8||The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.||behold, he cometh|
|9||My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.|
|10||My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.||Rise up|
|11||For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;||winter is past|
|12||The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;||turtle|
The fig tree putteth forth her
green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good
smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
|14||O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.|
Take us the foxes, the little
foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
|Take us the foxes|
|16||My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.|
Until the day break, and the
shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young
hart upon the mountains of Bether.
