          DASV: Song of Songs 1    

1 The Song of songs, which is Solomon's.

Beloved Woman
2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth,
      for your love is better than wine.
3 Your anointing oils have a pleasing fragrance.
     Your name is like fragrant oil poured out,
           and that is why the young women love you.
4 Take me away with you, let’s hurry.
     The king has brought me into his bedroom.

Women of Jerusalem
     We will be glad and rejoice in you.
           We will praise your love more than wine.

Beloved woman
     How right they are to love you.
5 I am black, but beautiful,
           O daughters of Jerusalem,
     dark like the tents of Kedar,
           like the curtains of Solomon.
6 Do not look on me, because I am dark,
          because the sun has burned me.
      My mother's sons were angry at me,
     so they made me keeper of the vineyards.
           But my own vineyard have I not taken care of.
7 Tell me, O you whom my heart loves,
     where do you pasture your flock?
           Where do you have your sheep rest at noon?
     Why should I be like a woman who is veiled
           beside the flocks of your companions?

Man in love
8 If you do not know, O most beautiful among women,
     then follow the tracks of the flock,
           and feed your young goats beside the shepherds' tents.
9 I have compared you, O my love,
     to a mare among Pharaoh's chariot stallions.
10 Your cheeks are lovely, adorned with earrings,
     your neck with strings of jewels.
11 We will make you ornaments of gold
     studded with silver.

Beloved Woman
12 While the king reclined on his couch,
     a waft of my perfume gave forth its fragrance.
13 My beloved is to me like a pouch of fragrant myrrh,
     that lies between my breasts.
14 My beloved is to me like a cluster of henna blossoms,
     in the vineyards of En-gedi.

Man in love
15 O how beautiful you are, my love,
     O how beautiful you are,
           your eyes are like doves.

Beloved woman
16 You are handsome, my beloved,
     absolutely delightful.
           our bed is like lush green grass.
17 The beams of our house are cedars,
     our rafters are pine.
