Song Of Solomon 4 ©

1 Christ setteth forth the graces of the church: 8 He sheweth His love to her. 16 The church prayeth to be made fit for His presence.


BEHOLD, athou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes bwithin thy locks: cthy hair is as a flock of goats, 1that appear from mount Gilead.

b ch. 6.7.

Thy dteeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.


Thy elips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: fthy temples are like a piece of a gpomegranate within thy locks.


Thy hneck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there ihang a thousand *bucklers, all shields of mighty men.


Thy jtwo breasts are like two kyoung roes that are twins, which lfeed among the lilies.

k ch. 2.9.

mUntil the day 2break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of nmyrrh, and to the hill of *frankincense.

n ch. 3.6.

oThou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.


pCome with me qfrom Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the rleopards.


Thou hast 3ravished my heart, my sister, my sspouse; tthou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.


uHow fair is thy 4love, vmy sister, my spouse! how much wbetter is thy love than wine! and xthe smell of thine ointments than all spices!

v ch. 5.1,2.
w ch. 1.2,4.

yThy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; zand the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.


A agarden 5*inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.


bThy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; 6*camphire, with cspikenard,


Spikenard and saffron; dcalamus and cinnamon, with all trees of *frankincense; emyrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:

e ch. 5.1.

A ffountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.


gAwake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that hthe spices thereof may flow out. iLet my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.
