Song of Solomon 1
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1The Song of Songs, that [is] of Solomon.

2Let him kiss me with kisses of his mouth, "" For better [are] your loves than wine.

3For fragrance [are] your good perfumes. Perfume emptied out—your name, "" Therefore have virgins loved you!

4Draw me: we run after you, "" The king has brought me into his inner chambers, "" We delight and rejoice in you, "" We mention your loves more than wine, "" Uprightly they have loved you!

5I [am] dark and lovely, daughters of Jerusalem, as tents of Kedar, as curtains of Solomon.

6Do not fear me, because I [am] very dark, "" Because the sun has scorched me, "" The sons of my mother were angry with me, "" They made me keeper of the vineyards, "" My vineyard—my own—I have not kept.

7Declare to me, you whom my soul has loved, "" Where you delight, "" Where you lie down at noon, "" For why am I as one veiled, "" By the ranks of your companions?

8If you do not know, "" O beautiful among women, "" Go forth by the traces of the flock, "" And feed your kids by the shepherds’ dwellings!

9To my joyous one in chariots of Pharaoh, I have compared you, my friend,

10Your cheeks have been lovely with garlands, your neck with chains.

11We make garlands of gold for you, with studs of silver!

12While the king [is] in his circle, "" My spikenard has given its fragrance.

13A bundle of myrrh [is] my beloved to me, "" Between my breasts it lodges.

14A cluster of cypress [is] my beloved to me, "" In the vineyards of En-Gedi!

15Behold, you [are] beautiful, my friend, "" Behold, you [are] beautiful, your eyes [are] doves!

16Behold, you [are] beautiful, my love, indeed, pleasant, "" Indeed, our bed [is] green,

17The beams of our houses [are] cedars, "" Our rafters [are] firs, I [am] a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys!
