1A further description of the church's graces. 10The church professeth her faith and desire.

1

HOW abeautiful are thy feet with shoes, bO prince's daughter! cthe joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a *cunning workman.

2

Thy dnavel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not 1liquor: ethy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with flilies.

f ch. 2.1.
3

Thy gtwo breasts are like two young roes that are twins.

g ch. 4.5.
4

Thy hneck is as a tower of ivory; ithine eyes like the fishpools in jHeshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim: kthy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.

5

Thine lhead upon thee is like 2Carmel, and mthe hair of thine head like purple; nthe king is 3held in the galleries.

n ch. 1.4.
6

How ofair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!

7

This pthy stature is like to a palm tree, and qthy breasts to clusters of grapes.

8

I said, rI will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also thy sbreasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the tsmell of thy nose like apples;

9

And uthe roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down 4sweetly, causing the lips 5of those that are asleep to speak.

10

vI am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.

11

wCome, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

12

Let us xget up early to the vineyards; let yus see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape 6appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give zthee my loves.

z Ex. 25.22. Ps. 122.5. He. 4.16. Eze. 20.40,41. Ps. 63.1-7; 116.1-19; 145; 146.
13

The a*mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are ball *manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
