Song Of Solomon 6 ©

The companions ask the bride for her Beloved, v. 1. She tells them where he is gone, 2. The Bridegroom describes the form and beauty of His bride, 4. Likewise how that He visits His garden, 11. The Bridegroom invites His bride to come to Him, 13.


WHITHER1 is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? whither is thy beloved 2turned aside? 3that we may seek him with thee.


4My beloved is gone down 5into his garden, to 6the beds of spices, 7to feed 8in the gardens, and 9to gather lilies.


10I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: 11he feedeth among the lilies.


12Thouaart beautiful, O my love, as 13Tirzah, comely as 14Jerusalem, 15terrible 16as an army with banners.


17Turn away thine eyes 18from me, for 19they have overcome me: 20thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear 21from Gilead.


22Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.


As a piece of a pomegranate are 23thy temples within thy locks.


24There are 25threescore queens, and 26fourscore 27concubines, and 28virgins without number.


My dove, my undefiled is but 29one; she is 30the only one of her mother, she is 31the choice one 32of her that bare her. 33The daughters saw 34her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and 35they 36praised her.


37Who is she that 38looketh forth 39as the morning, fair as 40the moon, 41clear 42as the sun, and 43terrible as an army with banners?


44I went down into the garden of 45nuts to see the 46fruits 47of the valley, and to see whether the 48vine flourished, and 49the pomegranates 50budded.


51Or ever I was aware, my soul 52made me like the chariots 53of Ammi-nadib.b


54Return, return, 55O Shulamite; return, return, that 56we may 57look upon thee. 58What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were 59the company 60of two armies.
