Song of Solomon Chapter 1

Song of Solomon 1:1 Solomon’s Most Wonderful Song.

Song of Solomon 1:2 She says: Cover me with kisses, for your love is better than wine.

Song of Solomon 1:3 Your perfume smells wonderful, but your name is sweeter than the best perfume. That is why the virgins love you.

Song of Solomon 1:4 Take me with you. Let’s run away.  The king took me into his room. We will rejoice and be happy for you. Remember, your love is better than wine.  With good reason, the virgins love you.

Song of Solomon 1:5 She says: Girls of Jerusalem, I am black, but I am beautiful. I am as beautiful as the tents in the land of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon.

Song of Solomon 1:6 Don’t look at me because I am black, because the sun has burnt me.   My brothers were angry with me.  They forced me to take care of their vineyards, and that is why I could not take care of my vineyard.

Song of Solomon 1:7 She says: I love you with all my soul! Tell me, where do you feed your sheep?  Where do you lay them down at noon?  I should come to be with you, or I will be like a hired woman caring for the sheep of your friends.

Song of Solomon 1:8 He says: You are such a beautiful woman. If you don’t know the way, you must follow the path of the sheep.  Feed your young goats near the shepherds’ tents.

Song of Solomon 1:9 He says: My love, you are beautiful to me, as beautiful as a horse in front of Pharaoh’s war-chariot.

Song of Solomon 1:10 Your cheeks are so beautiful with those ornaments hanging beside them.  Your neck is so lovely under that neckless of gold.

Song of Solomon 1:11 I will make you some more gold jewelry and decorate it with silver.

Song of Solomon 1:12 She says: When the king was at his table, my perfume spread its fragrance.

Song of Solomon 1:13 My lover is like the small bag of myrrh around my neck, lying all night between my breasts.

Song of Solomon 1:14 My lover is like a bunch of henna flowers near the vineyards of Engedi.

Song of Solomon 1:15 He says love, you are so beautiful!  Oh, you are beautiful!  Your eyes are like doves.

Song of Solomon 1:16 She says: You are so handsome, my lover! also our bed is green.

Song of Solomon 1:17 The beams of our house are cedar.  The rafters are from cypress trees.
