Song Of Solomon 7 ©
The bride is commended because of her beauty and comeliness, v. 1, etc. She rejoices because of her communion and fellowship with her Bridegroom, 10. She invites Him, and requests with Him to visit the Churches, 11, etc.
HOW1 beautiful are 2thy feet with shoes, 3O prince’s daughter! the 4joints of thy thighs are 5like jewels, the work of the hands of 6a cunning workman.
7Thy navel is like a round goblet, 8which wanteth not liquor: 9thy belly is like an heap of wheat 10set about with lilies.
11Thy two breastsaare like two young roes that are twins.
12Thy neck is 13as a tower of ivory; 14thine eyes like the fishpools in 15Heshbon, 16by the gate of Bath-rabbim: 17thy nose is as 18the tower of Lebanon 19which looketh toward 20Damascus.
Thine head upon thee is like 21Carmel, and 22the hair of thine head like 23purple; 24the king is held 25in the galleries.
26Howb fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, 27for delights!
This thy 28stature is like to a 29palm tree, and thy breasts to 30clusters of grapes.
31I said, 32I will go up to the palm tree, 33I will take hold of the boughs thereof: 34now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy 35nose like 36apples;
And 37the roof of thy mouth like the best wine 38for my beloved, that goeth down 39sweetly, 40causing the lips of those 41that are asleep to speak.
¶ 42Icam my beloved's, and his 43desire is toward me.
Come, my beloved, 44let us go forth 45into the field; 46let us lodge 47in the villages.
48Let us get up early 49to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether 50the tender grape 51appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: 52there will I give thee 53my loves.
54The mandrakesd55give a smell, and 56at our gates are 57all manner of pleasant fruits, 58new and old, 59which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
