Song of Solomon 3
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1On my bed by night, I sought him whom my soul has loved; I sought him, and I did not find him!

2Now let me rise, and go around the city, "" In the streets and in the broad places, "" I seek him whom my soul has loved! I sought him, and I did not find him.

3The watchmen have found me "" (Who are going around the city), "" “Have you seen him whom my soul has loved?”

4But I passed on a little from them, "" Until I found him whom my soul has loved! I seized him, and did not let him go, "" Until I brought him to the house of my mother—And the chamber of her that conceived me.

5I have adjured you, daughters of Jerusalem, "" By the roes or by the does of the field, "" Do not stir up nor wake the love until she pleases!

6Who [is] this coming up from the wilderness, "" Like palm-trees of smoke, "" Perfumed [with] myrrh and frankincense, "" From every powder of the merchant?

7Behold, his couch, that [is] of Solomon, "" Sixty mighty ones [are] around it, "" Of the mighty of Israel,

8All of them holding sword, taught of battle, "" Each his sword by his thigh, for fear at night.

9A palanquin King Solomon made for himself, "" Of the wood of Lebanon,

10Its pillars he made of silver, "" Its bottom of gold, its seat of purple, "" Its midst lined [with] love, "" By the daughters of Jerusalem.

11Go forth, and look, you daughters of Zion, "" On King Solomon, with the crown, "" With which his mother crowned him, "" In the day of his espousals, "" And in the day of the joy of his heart!
