Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Song of Solomon

Song of Solomon 1

¶1. The song of songs which is by Solomon.

2. “O may he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth. Yea, your loving kisses are better than wine,

3.and the aroma of your oil is pleasurable. Your name is poured out as oil. Therefore, virgins love you.

4.Draw me! After you will we run. The king brought me into his chambers; we will be glad and rejoice in you. We will remember your loving more than wine; all the upright love you.

5.I am dark, yet beautiful, O daughters of Jerusalem, like tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon.

6.Do not stare at me. I am dark for the sun has looked upon me. My mother’s sons were angry with me. They made me a keeper of the vineyards. My own vineyard have I not kept.

7.O tell me, you whom my soul loves, where do you tend your flock, where do you bring it to lie down at noon? For why am I as one who covers herself before the flocks of your companions?”

8. “If it be not known to you, O most fair among the women, go forth in the footsteps of the flock and feed your kids by the shepherds’ places.

9.As my mare among the chariots of Pharaoh have I compared you, O my love.

10.Your cheeks are beautiful with pendants, your neck with chains.

11.We will make pendants of gold for you, with studs of silver.”

12. “While the king reclined, my spikenard gave forth its aroma.

13.My beloved is as a pouch of myrrh to me; he shall pass the night between my breasts.

14.My beloved is to me as a cluster of …? in the vineyards of Engedi.”

15. “Behold, you are fair! O my love, behold, you are beautiful! Your eyes are gentle as doves.”

16. “Behold, you, my beloved, are handsome, yea, pleasing. Yea, our bed is lush.

17.The beams of our house are cedar; our boards are fir.”

¶1. “I am the rose of Sharon, the lily of the valleys.

2.As a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.”

3. “As an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. In his shadow I delight sit down, and his fruit is sweet to my mouth.

4.He has brought me to the house of the wine, and his banner over me is love.

5.Sustain me with cakes of raisins; comfort me with apples. I am overcome by love.

6.His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me.”

7. “I adjure you , O daughters of Jerusalem, by gazelles , or by hinds of the field, if you rouse up or if you awaken my love until she pleases.”

8. “The voice of my beloved! Behold, he is coming, leaping over the mountains, skipping over the hills.

9.My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he stands behind our wall looking at the windows, gazing through the lattice.

10.My beloved spoke and said to me, ‘Rise up, O my love, my fair one and come away.

11.For behold, winter is past; the rain is over, it is gone.

12.The flowers appear upon the land, the time for song has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in the land.

13.The fig tree ripens its green figs, and the vines in blossom give their fragrance. Rise up, come, my love, my fair one, and come away.

14.O my dove, who is in the clefts of the rock, in the secret place of the ascent, let me see your countenance, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your countenance is beautiful.

15.Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes spoiling the vines, for our vines are in blossom.

16.My beloved is mine, and I am his; he grazes among the lilies,

17.until the day breaks, and the shadows flee. Turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle or a young stag upon mountains of Bather.”

¶1. “Night after night on my bed, I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but I could not find him.

2.I will arise now and go about in the city, in the streets and in the open squares will I seek him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but I could not find him.

3.The watchmen who go about in the city found me. ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’

4.It was just a little after I passed on from them until I found him whom my soul loves. I seized him, and I would not let him go until I had brought him to the house of my mother and into the chamber of her who conceived me.

5.I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by gazelles , or by hinds of the field, if you rouse up or if you awaken my love until she pleases.”

6. “Who is this coming up from the wilderness like mushrooming columns of smoke, perfumed with myrrh, and frankincense, with every powder from a merchant?”

7. “Behold his bed, which is Solomon’s; sixty mighty men are about it, of the mighty men of Israel.

8.All of them holding a sword, instructed in war. Each man’s sword upon his thigh against fear in the night.”

9. “King Solomon made a litter for himself of the wood of Lebanon.

10.He made its pillars of silver, its support of gold, its seat of purple, its interior lined with love by the daughters of Jerusalem.

11.Go forth, O daughters of Zion, and behold King Solomon with the crown that his mother crowned him on the day of his marriage, and on the day of the rejoicing of his heart!”

¶1. “Behold, you are fair, my love; behold, you are fair, your eyes are like doves’ behind your veil. Your hair is as a flock of goats descending from Mount Gilead.

2.Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes that are coming up from the washing; all of them with twins, and not one is bereaved among them.

3.Your lips are like a thread of scarlet, and your mouth is beautiful; your temple is like a piece of pomegranate behind your veil.

4.Your neck is like the tower of David built for an armory, on which are hung a thousand shields, all of them the shields of warriors.

5.Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle, which feed among the lilies.

6.Until the day breaks, and the shadows flee, I will get myself to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.

7.You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is not even a blemish in you.

8.With me, O bride, come from Lebanon, come with me from Lebanon. Look from the top of Amana, from the top of Senir, even Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of leopards.

9.You make my heart race, my sister, my bride; you make my heart race with one of your eyes, with one link of your neck.

10.How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine, and the aroma of your oil than all spices!
