Love Makes Everything Beautiful
2
She Speaks:

1 I am merely a rose
e 2.1 rose: The traditional translation. The exact variety of the flower is not known, though it may have been a crocus.
from the land of Sharon,
a lily from the valley.
He Speaks:

2 My darling, when compared
with other young women,
you are a lily among thorns.
She Speaks:

3 And you, my love,
are an apple tree
among trees of the forest.
Your shade brought me pleasure;
your fruit was sweet.
4 You led me to your banquet room
and showered me with love.
5 Refresh and strengthen me
with raisins and apples.
I am hungry for love!
6 Put your left hand under my head
and embrace me
with your right arm.

7 Young women of Jerusalem,
promise me by the power
of deer and gazelles
f 2.7 deer and gazelles: Deer and gazelles were sacred animals in some religions of Old Testament times, and they were thought to have special powers.
never to awaken love
before it is ready.
Winter Is Past
She Speaks:

8 I hear the voice
of the one I love,
as he comes leaping
over mountains and hills
9 like a deer or a gazelle.
Now he stands outside our wall,
looking through the window
10 and speaking to me.
He Speaks:

My darling, I love you!
Let's go away together.
11 Winter is past,
the rain has stopped;
12 flowers cover the earth,
it's time to sing.
g 2.12 sing: Or “trim the vines.”
The cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
13 Fig trees are bearing fruit,
while blossoms on grapevines
fill the air with perfume.
My darling, I love you!
Let's go away together.
14 You are my dove
hiding among the rocks
on the side of a cliff.
Let me see how lovely you are!
Let me hear the sound
of your melodious voice.
15 Our vineyards are in blossom;
we must catch the little foxes
that destroy the vineyards.
h 2.15 vineyards: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verse 15.
She Speaks:

16 My darling, I am yours,
and you are mine,
as you feed your sheep
among the lilies.
17 Pretend to be a young deer
dancing on mountain slopes
i 2.17 mountain slopes: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
until daylight comes
and shadows fade away.
