Song Of Solomon 6


Song of Solomon 6

Others

[1] Where has your beloved gone,
O most beautiful among women?
Where has your beloved turned,
that we may seek him with you?



Together in the Garden of Love

She

[2] My beloved has gone down to his garden
to the beds of spices,
to graze in the gardens
and to gather lilies.
[3] I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine;
he grazes among the lilies.



Solomon and His Bride Delight in Each Other

He

[4] You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love,
lovely as Jerusalem,
awesome as an army with banners.
[5] Turn away your eyes from me,
for they overwhelm me—
Your hair is like a flock of goats
leaping down the slopes of Gilead.
[6] Your teeth are like a flock of ewes
that have come up from the washing;
all of them bear twins;
not one among them has lost its young.
[7] Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
behind your veil.
[8] There are sixty queens and eighty concubines,
and virgins without number.
[9] My dove, my perfect one, is the only one,
the only one of her mother,
pure to her who bore her.
The young women saw her and called her blessed;
the queens and concubines also, and they praised her.


[10] “Who is this who looks down like the dawn,
beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun,
awesome as an army with banners?”


She

[11] I went down to the nut orchard
to look at the blossoms of the valley,
to see whether the vines had budded,
whether the pomegranates were in bloom.
[12] Before I was aware, my desire set me
among the chariots of my kinsman, a prince.


Others

[13] Return, return, O Shulammite,
return, return, that we may look upon you.


He

Why should you look upon the Shulammite,
as upon a dance before two armies? (ESV)
