The Bride’s Troubled Dream

  1IOn my bed night after night I sought him
  aWhom my soul loves;
  I bsought him but did not find him.
  2II must arise now and Igo about the city;
  In the astreets and in the squares
  III must seek him whom my soul loves.’
  I sought him but did not find him.
  3aThe watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,
  [And I said], ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’
  4aScarcely had I Ileft them
  When I found him whom my soul loves;
  I bheld on to him and would not let him go
  Until I had cbrought him to my mother’s house,
  And into the room of her who conceived me.”

  On the bday of his wedding,
  And on the day of his gladness of heart.”

The Church's fight and victory in temptation.

1 ¶ By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. 2 I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. 3 The watchmen that go about the city found me: [to whom I said], Saw ye him whom my soul loveth? 4 [It was] but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me. 5 I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake [my] love, till he please.

6 ¶ Who [is] this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant? 7 Behold his bed, which [is] Solomon's; threescore valiant men [are] about it, of the valiant of Israel. 8 They all hold swords, [being] expert in war: every man [hath] his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night. 9 King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon. 10 He made the pillars thereof [of] silver, the bottom thereof [of] gold, the covering of it [of] purple, the midst thereof being paved [with] love, for the daughters of Jerusalem. 11 Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.
