Song of Solomon 5


5:1 I have come into my garden, my sister, [my] spouse: I have
 gathered my myrrh, with my spice; I have eaten my honey-comb
 with my honey; I have drank my wine with my milk: eat, O
 friends; drink, yes, drink abundantly, O beloved.
5:2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: [it is] the voice of my
 beloved that knocketh, [saying], Open to me, my sister, my
 love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew,
 [and] my locks with the drops of the night.
5:3 I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed
 my feet; how shall I defile them?
5:4 My beloved put in his hand by the hole [of the door], and my
 bowels were moved for him.
5:5 I rose up to open to my beloved: and my hands dropped [with]
 myrrh, and my fingers [with] sweet-smelling myrrh, upon the
 handles of the lock.
5:6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn
 himself, [and] was gone: my soul failed when he spoke: I sought
 him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no
 answer.
5:7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote
 me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my vail
 from me.
5:8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my
 beloved, that ye tell him, that I [am] sick with love.
5:9 What [is] thy beloved more than [another] beloved, O thou
 fairest among women? what [is] thy beloved more than [another]
 beloved, that thou dost so charge us?
5:10 My beloved [is] white and ruddy, the chief among ten
 thousand.
5:11 His head [is as] the most fine gold, his locks [are] bushy,
 [and] black as a raven.
5:12 His eyes [are] as [the eyes] of doves by the rivers of
 waters, washed with milk, [and] fitly set.
5:13 His cheeks [are] as a bed of spices, [as] sweet flowers:
 his lips [like] lilies, dropping sweet-smelling myrrh.
5:14 His hands [are as] gold rings set with the beryl: his belly
 [is as] bright ivory overlaid [with] sapphires.
5:15 His legs [are as] pillars of marble, set upon sockets of
 fine gold: his countenance [is] as Lebanon, excellent as the
 cedars.
5:16 His mouth [is] most sweet: yes, he [is] altogether lovely.
 This [is] my beloved, and this [is] my friend, O daughters of
 Jerusalem.
