1: Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? Whither hath thy beloved turned him, That we may seek him with thee? 2: My beloved is gone down to his garden, To the beds of spices, To feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies. 3: I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine; He feedeth [his flock] among the lilies, 4: Thou art fair, O my love, as Tirzah, Comely as Jerusalem, Terrible as an army with banners. 5: Turn 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: Thy 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. 7: Thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate Behind thy veil. 8: There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, And virgins without number. 9: My 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. 10: Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, Clear as the sun, Terrible as an army with banners? 11: I 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. 12: Before I was aware, my soul set me [Among] the chariots of my princely people. 13: Return, return, O Shulammite; Return, return, that we may look upon thee. Why will ye look upon the Shulammite, As upon the dance of Mahanaim?
