Ecclesiastes 12

The Song of Songs, Which is Solomon's

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1

 

  The song of songs, which is Solomon's.  

 

 


2

 

  Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; For thy love is better than wine.  

 

 


3

 

  Thine ointments savour sweetly; Thy name is an ointment poured forth: Therefore do the virgins love thee.  

 

 


4

 

  Draw me, we will run after thee! -- The king hath brought me into his chambers -- We will be glad and rejoice in thee, We will remember thy love more than wine. They love thee uprightly.  

 

 


5

 

  I am black, but comely, daughters of Jerusalem, As the tents of Kedar, As the curtains of Solomon.  

 

 


6

 

  Look not upon me, because I am black; Because the sun hath looked upon me. My mother's children were angry with me: They made me keeper of the vineyards; Mine own vineyard have I not kept.  

 

 


7

 

  Tell me, thou whom my soul loveth, Where thou feedest [thy flock], Where thou makest it to rest at noon; For why should I be as one veiled Beside the flocks of thy companions?  

 

 


8

 

  If thou know not, thou fairest among women, Go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, And feed thy kids beside the shepherds' booths.  

 

 


9

 

  I compare thee, my love, To a steed in Pharaoh's chariots.  

 

 


10

 

  Thy cheeks are comely with bead-rows, Thy neck with ornamental chains.  

 

 


11

 

  We will make thee bead-rows of gold With studs of silver.  

 

 


12

 

  While the king is at his table, My spikenard sendeth forth its fragrance.  

 

 


13

 

  A bundle of myrrh is my beloved unto me; He shall pass the night between my breasts.  

 

 


14

 

  My beloved is unto me a cluster of henna-flowers In the vineyards of Engedi.  

 

 


15

 

  Behold, thou art fair, my love; Behold, thou art fair: thine eyes are doves.  

 

 


16

 

  Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant; Also our bed is green.  

 

 


17

 

  The beams of our houses are cedars, Our rafters are cypresses.
