A (14,15) His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory < 08127> overlaid with sapphires. His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.
B (16) His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
C (1) Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest <03303> among women? whither is thy beloved turned aside? that we may seek him with thee.
D (2) My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.
E (3) I am my beloved’s,
E1 (3) and my beloved is mine:
D1(3) he feedeth among the lilies.
C1 (4) Thou art beautiful <03303>, O my love,
B1 (4) as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.
A1 (5, 6) Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me: thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead. Thy teeth <08127> are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.
