Song of Solomon 6 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

6:1Whither is thy beloved gone,

O thou fairest among women?

Whither hath thy beloved turned him,

That we may seek him with thee? \\ \\

6:2My beloved is gone down to his garden,

To the beds of spices,

To feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.

6:3I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine;

He feedeth his flock among the lilies, \\ \\

6:4Thou art fair, O my love, as Tirzah,

Comely as Jerusalem,

Terrible as an army with banners.

6:5Turn 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.

6:6Thy 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.

6:7Thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate

Behind thy veil.

6:8There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines,

And virgins without number.

6:9My 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. \\ \\

6:10Who is she that looketh forth as the morning,

Fair as the moon,

Clear as the sun,

Terrible as an army with banners? \\ \\

6:11I 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.

6:12Before I was aware, my soul set me

Among the chariots of my princely people. \\ \\

6:13Return, return, O Shulammite;

Return, return, that we may look upon thee.

Why will ye look upon the Shulammite,

As upon the dance of Mahanaim?
