Solomon’s Love Expressed

  1I,IIHow beautiful ayou are, my darling,
  IIHow beautiful you are!
  Your beyes are [like] doves cbehind your veil;
  Your dhair is like a flock of goats
  That have descended from Mount eGilead.
  2 “Your ateeth are like a flock of [newly] shorn ewes
  Which have come up from [their] washing,
  All of which bear twins,
  And not one among them has Ilost her young.
  3 “Your lips are like a ascarlet thread,
  And your bmouth is lovely.
  Your ctemples are like a slice of a pomegranate
  Behind your veil.
  4 “Your aneck is like the tower of David,
  Built Iwith rows of stones
  On which are bhung a thousand shields,
  All the round cshields of the mighty men.
  5 “Your atwo breasts are like two fawns,
  Twins of a gazelle
  Which bfeed among the lilies.
  6aUntil Ithe cool of the day
  When the shadows flee away,
  I will go my way to the mountain of bmyrrh
  And to the hill of bfrankincense.

Christ setteth forth the graces of the Church.

1 ¶ Behold, thou [art] fair, my love; behold, thou [art] fair; thou [hast] doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair [is] as a flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead. 2 Thy teeth [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. 3 Thy lips [are] like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech [is] comely: thy temples [are] like a piece of a pomegranate within thy locks. 4 Thy neck [is] like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men. 5 Thy two breasts [are] like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies. 6 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense. 7 Thou [art] all fair, my love; [there is] no spot in thee.

He sheweth his love to her.

8 ¶ Come with me from 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 leopards. 9 Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, [my] spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck. 10 How fair is thy love, my sister, [my] spouse! how much better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine ointments than all spices! 11 Thy lips, O [my] spouse, drop [as] the honeycomb: honey and milk [are] under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments [is] like the smell of Lebanon. 12 A garden inclosed [is] my sister, [my] spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. 13 Thy plants [are] an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, 14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices: 15 A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
