Song of Solomon 7

English Standard Version

1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O noble daughter! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand. (Ps 45:13; Pr 8:30; Pr 25:12)2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies. (So 2:1)3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. (So 4:5)4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, which looks toward Damascus. (Nu 21:26; 1Ki 4:33; 1Ki 11:24; 2Ki 5:12; So 4:4; So 4:8; So 5:12)5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses. (Jos 19:26; So 4:1)6 How beautiful and pleasant you are, O loved one, with all your delights![1] (2Sa 1:23; 2Sa 1:26; So 1:15)7 Your stature is like a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its fruit. Oh may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples, (So 1:14; Mic 7:1)9 and your mouth[2] like the best wine. She: It goes down smoothly for my beloved, gliding over lips and teeth.[3] (So 5:16)10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is for me. (Ps 45:11; So 2:16; So 6:3)11 Come, my beloved, let us go out into the fields and lodge in the villages;[4] (So 2:10; So 4:8)12 let us go out early to the vineyards and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love. (So 2:13; So 2:15; So 6:11)13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and beside our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved. (Ge 30:14; So 4:13; Mt 13:52)
