1 Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? whither is thy beloved turned aside? that we may seek him with thee.

2 My darling has gone down
to his garden of spices,
where he will feed his sheep
and gather lilies.
2 My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.
3 I am his, and he is mine,
as he feeds his sheep
among the lilies.
He Speaks:
3 I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.

4 My dearest, the cities of Tirzah
and Jerusalem
are not as lovely as you.
Your charms are more powerful
than all of the stars
in the heavens.
p 6.4 all ... heavens: Or “a mighty army ready for war.”
4 Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.
5 Turn away your eyes—
they make me melt.
Your hair tosses about
as gracefully as goats
coming down from Gilead.
5 Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me: thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead.
overcome...: or, puffed me up
6 Your teeth are whiter
than sheep freshly washed;
they match perfectly,
not one is missing.
6 Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.
7 Behind your veil are hidden
beautiful rosy cheeks.
q 6.7 cheeks: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verse 7.
7 As a piece of a pomegranate are thy temples within thy locks.

8 What if I could have
sixty queens, eighty wives,
and thousands of others!
8 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number.
9 You would be my only choice,
my flawless dove,
the favorite child
of your mother.
The young women, the queens,
and all the others
tell how excited you are
as they sing your praises:
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 blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.
10 “You are as majestic
as the morning sky—
glorious as the moon—
blinding as the sun!
Your charms are more powerful
than all the stars above.”
r 6.10 all ... above: Or “a mighty army ready for war.”
She Speaks:
10 Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?

11 I went down to see if blossoms
were on the walnut trees,
grapevines, and fruit trees.
11 I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded.
12 But in my imagination
I was suddenly riding
on a glorious chariot.
s 6.12 chariot: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verse 12.
Their Friends Speak:
12 Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib.
Or ever...: Heb. I knew not
made...: or, set me on the chariots of my willing people

13 Dance! Dance!
Beautiful woman from Shulam,
let us see you dance!
She Speaks:

Why do you want to see
this woman from Shulam
dancing with the others?
t 6.13 dancing ... others: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
13 Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies.
of...: or, of Mahanaim
