Song of Solomon Chapter 4

Song of Solomon 4:1 He says:  My love, you are beautiful. Listen, you are good to look at. Your eyes are like doves behind your veil. Your hair is like a flock of goats coming down from Mount Gilead.

Song of Solomon 4:2 Your teeth are white like a flock of sheep, sheep that are washed and sheared. Each sheep has twin babies.  All of them have lambs.

Song of Solomon 4:3 Your lips are like a red silk thread.  Your words are beautiful. Your temples under your veil are like two slices of pomegranate.

Song of Solomon 4:4 Your neck is like David’s tower. That tower was built to be decorated with a thousand shields on its walls, with the shields of powerful soldiers.

Song of Solomon 4:5 Your breasts are like twin fawns, feeding among the lilies.

Song of Solomon 4:6 I will go to the mountain of myrrh, to the hill of incense, and I will stay there until morning comes and the darkness disappears.

Song of Solomon 4:7 My love, you are beautiful all over.  Every part of you is perfect.

Song of Solomon 4:8 Come with me, my bride, from Lebanon. Come with me from Lebanon.  Come from the peak of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon from the lion’s caves, from the mountain of the leopards.

Song of Solomon 4:9 My love, my bride, you made my heartbeat faster when you looked at me.  It took only one piece of the chain around your neck to make me breathe faster.

Song of Solomon 4:10 Your love is so beautiful, my love, my bride! Your love is better than wine. The smell of your perfume is better than any kind of spice!

Song of Solomon 4:11 My bride, your lips are like a honeycomb, and there is honey and milk under your tongue. Your clothes smell like they come from the Lebanon Mountain.’

Song of Solomon 4:12 He says: You are like a garden with a wall around it.  My bride is like a garden with a wall around it, and like a fountain that is closed.

Song of Solomon 4:13 Your arms and legs are like a garden filled with pomegranates and other pleasant fruit, with all the best spices:

Song of Solomon 4:14 Spikenard, saffron, calamus, and cinnamon. with all the incense trees, myrrh and aloes with all the best herbs.

Song of Solomon 4:15 You are like a garden fountain, a well of fresh water, flowing down from the mountains of Lebanon.

Song of Solomon 4:16 She says, Wake up, north wind. Come, south wind. Blow on my garden.  Spread its sweet smell.  Let my lover enter his garden and eat its pleasant fruit.
