1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter! The curves of your thighs [are] like jewels, The work of the hands of a skillful workman.
2 Your navel [is] a rounded goblet; It lacks no blended beverage. Your waist [is] a heap of wheat Set about with lilies.
3 Your two breasts [are] like two fawns, Twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck [is] like an ivory tower, Your eyes [like] the pools in Heshbon By the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose [is] like the tower of Lebanon Which looks toward Damascus.
5 Your head [crowns] you like [Mount] Carmel, And the hair of your head [is] like purple; A king [is] held captive by [your] tresses.
6 How fair and how pleasant you are, O love, with your delights!
7 This stature of yours is like a palm tree, And your breasts [like] its clusters.
8 I said, "I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of its branches." Let now your breasts be like clusters of the vine, The fragrance of your breath like apples,
9 And the roof of your mouth like the best wine. THE SHULAMITE [The wine] goes [down] smoothly for my beloved, Moving gently the lips of sleepers.
10 I [am] my beloved's, And his desire [is] toward me.
11 Come, my beloved, Let us go forth to the field; Let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; Let us see if the vine has budded, [Whether] the grape blossoms are open, [And] the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
13 The mandrakes give off a fragrance, And at our gates [are] pleasant [fruits,] All manner, new and old, Which I have laid up for you, my beloved.
