1Behold, you are fair, my companion; behold, you are fair; your eyes are doves, beside your veil: your hair is as flocks of goats, that have appeared from Galaad.
2Your teeth are as flocks of shorn sheep, that have gone up from the washing; all of them bearing twins, and there is not a barren one amongst them.
3Your lips are as a thread of scarlet, and your speech is comely: like the rind of a pomegranate is your cheek without your veil.
4Your neck is as the tower of David, that was built for an armoury: a thousand shields hang upon it, and all darts of mighty men.
5Your two breasts are as two twin fawns, that feed amongst the lilies.
6Until the day dawn, and the shadows depart, I will betake me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.
7You are all fair, my companion, and there is no spot in you.
8Come from Libanus, my bride, come from Libanus: you shall come and pass from the top of Faith, from the top of Sanir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards.
9My sister, my spouse, you have ravished my heart; you have ravished my heart with one of your eyes, with one chain of your neck.
10How beautiful are your breasts, my sister, my spouse! how much more beautiful are your breasts than wine, and the smell of your garments than all spices!
11Your lips drop honeycomb, my spouse: honey and milk are under your tongue; and the smell of your garments is as the smell of Libanus.
12My sister, my spouse is a garden enclosed; a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed.
13Your shoots are a garden of pomegranates, with the fruit of choice berries; camphor, with spikenard:
14spikenard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon; with all woods of Libanus, myrrh, aloes, with all chief spices:
15a fountain of a garden, and a well of water springing and gurgling from Libanus.
16Awake, O north wind; and come, O south; and blow through my garden, and let my spices flow out.
