O thou fairest among women?
Whither hath thy beloved turned him,
That we may seek him with thee? \\ \\
6:2My beloved is gone down to his garden,
To the beds of spices,
To feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.
6:3I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine;
He feedeth his flock among the lilies, \\ \\
Comely as Jerusalem,
Terrible as an army with banners.
6:5Turn away thine eyes from me,
For they have overcome me.
Thy hair is as a flock of goats,
That lie along the side of Gilead.
6:6Thy teeth are like a flock of ewes,
Which are come up from the washing;
Whereof every one hath twins,
And none is bereaved among them.
6:7Thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate
Behind thy veil.
6:8There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines,
And virgins without number.
6:9My dove, my undefiled, is but one;
She is the only one of her mother;
She is the choice one of her that bare her.
The daughters saw her, and called her blessed;
Yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her. \\ \\
6:10Who is she that looketh forth as the morning,
Fair as the moon,
Clear as the sun,
Terrible as an army with banners? \\ \\
6:11I went down into the garden of nuts,
To see the green plants of the valley,
To see whether the vine budded,
And the pomegranates were in flower.
6:12Before I was aware, my soul set me
6:13Return, return, O Shulammite;
Return, return, that we may look upon thee.
Why will ye look upon the Shulammite,
As upon the dance of Mahanaim?
