Song of Solomon 6:7-11

A (7) As a piece of a pomegranate are thy temples within thy locks.

B (8) There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number.

C (9) is but one <0259>;

D (9) My dove, my undefiled

C1 (9) she is the only one <0259> of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her.

B1 (9) The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.

A1 (10,11) Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners? I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded.
Note: Order for CDC1 follows Hebrew.(Nigel)

One thought on “Song of Solomon 6:7-11”

  1. Nice chiasm. Another possibility is to get rid of the pomegranate step and to include two more outside steps. 6:4 & 10 – “awesome as an army with banners”. And also “gone down” – yarad (only times this word used in Song of Songs) in 6:2 and 6:11. The thoughts in 6:2 and 6:11 are also very similar.
