The Song of Solomon

1  How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter!
The joints of thy thighs are like jewels,
the work of the hands of a cunning workman.
2  Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor:
thy belly is like a heap of wheat set about with lilies.
3  Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins.
4  Thy neck is as a tower of ivory;
thine eyes like the fishpools in Heshbon,
by the gate of Bath–rab'bim:
thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon
which looketh toward Damascus.
5  Thine head upon thee is like Carmel,
and the hair of thine head like purple;
the King is held in the galleries.
6  How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!
7  This thy stature is like to a palm tree,
and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
8  I said, I will go up to the palm tree,
I will take hold of the boughs thereof:
now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine,
and the smell of thy nose like apples;
9  and the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved,
that goeth down sweetly,
causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
10  I am my beloved's,
and his desire is toward me.
11  Come, my beloved,
let us go forth into the field;
let us lodge in the villages.
12  Let us get up early to the vineyards;
let us see if the vine flourish,
whether the tender grape appear,
and the pomegranates bud forth:
there will I give thee my loves.
13  The mandrakes give a smell,
and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old,
which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
