1:1

1:1 The Song of Songs, which is Solomon's.

Her

1:2 Let Him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth:

Him


For thy breasts are better than wine.

1:3 And the smell of thine ointments is better than all aromatics:
Thy name is ointment poured forth;
Therefore do the young maidens love thee.

1:4 They have drawn thee:

Friends


We will run after thee,
For the smell of thine ointments:

Her


The King hath brought me into closet:

Friends


Let us rejoice and be glad in thee;
We will love thy breasts more than wine:
Righteousness loveth thee.

Her

1:5 I am black, but beautiful,
Ye daughters of Jerusalem,
As the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

1:6 Look not upon me,
Because I am darkened,
Because the sun hath looked unfavourably upon me:
My mother's sons strove with me;
They made me keeper in the vineyards;
I have not kept mine own vineyard.

1:7 Tell me, thou whom my soul loves,
Where thou tendest thy flock,
Where thou causest them to rest at noon,
Lest I become as one that is veiled by the flocks of thy companions.

Him

1:8 If thou knowest not thyself,
Thou fair one among women,
Go thou forth by the footsteps of the flocks,
And feed thy kids by the shepherd's tents.

1:9 I have likened thee, my companion,
To my horses in the chariots of Pharaoh.

1:10 How are thy cheeks beautiful as those of a dove,
Thy neck as chains!

Friends

1:11 We will make thee figures of gold with studs of silver.

Her

1:12 So long as the king was at table,
My spikenard gave forth its smell.

1:13 My li'l bro is to me a bundle of myrrh;
He shall lie between my breasts.

1:14 My li'l bro is to me a cluster of camphor,
In the vineyards of Engaddi.

Him

1:15 Behold, thou art fair, my companion;
Behold, thou art fair; thine eyes are doves.

Her

1:16 Behold, thou art fair, my li'l bro,
Yea, beautiful, overshadowing our bed.
