Song of Solomon 6
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Together in the Garden

1Where went thy beloved, O beautiful one among women? where turned away thy beloved, and we will seek him with thee.

2My beloved went down to his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.

3I to my beloved, and my beloved to me: he feeding among the lilies.

4Thou art beautiful my friend, as delight; becoming as Jerusalem, a terror as those being furnished with banners.

5Turn away thine eyes from before me; they enlarged me: thy hair as a herd of goats which lay down from Gilead.

6Thy teeth as a herd of sheep which went up from the washing, all of them bearing twins, and none barren among them.

7As a piece of pomegranate thy temples from behind thy veil.

8They are sixty queens, and eighty concubines, and maidens no number.

9She is one, my dove, my perfect one; she is one to her mother, she is the chosen to her bearing her. The daughters saw her and pronounced her happy; the queens and the concubines, and they will praise her.

10Who this looking forth as the morning, beautiful as the moon, clear as the sun, a terror as those being furnished with banners?

11I went down into the garden of nuts to look upon the greens of the valley, to see whether the vine was fruitful, whether the pomegranates blossomed.

12I knew not my soul set me the chariots of my willing people.

13Turn back, turn back, thou Shulamite; turn back, turn back, and we will look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As the stringed instrument of the camps.
