25 When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, (A)“Rabbi, when did you come here?” 26 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, (B)you are seeking me, not because you saw (C)signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. 27 (D)Do not work for the food that perishes, but for (E)the food that endures to eternal life, which (F)the Son of Man will give to you. For on (G)him God the Father has (H)set his seal.” 28 Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing (I)the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, (J)that you believe in him whom (K)he has sent.” 30 So they said to him, (L)“Then what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform? 31 (M)Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, (N)‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is (O)he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, (P)“Sir, give us this bread always.”

35 Jesus said to them, (Q)“I am the bread of life; (R)whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 (S)All that (T)the Father gives me will come to me, and (U)whoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38 For (V)I have come down from heaven, not to do (W)my own will but (X)the will of him (Y)who sent me. 39 And (Z)this is the will of him who sent me, (AA)that I should lose nothing of (AB)all that he has given me, but (AC)raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who (AD)looks on the Son and (AE)believes in him (AF)should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

(A)Come with me from (B)Lebanon, my (C)bride;
    come with me from (D)Lebanon.
Depart[a] from the peak of Amana,
    from the peak of (E)Senir and (F)Hermon,
from the dens of lions,
    from the mountains of leopards.

You have captivated my heart, my (G)sister, my bride;
    you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
    with one (H)jewel of your necklace.
10 How beautiful is your love, my (I)sister, my bride!
    How much (J)better is your love than wine,
    and (K)the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
11 Your (L)lips drip nectar, my bride;
    (M)honey and milk are under your tongue;
    the fragrance of your garments is (N)like the fragrance of (O)Lebanon.
12 A garden locked is my (P)sister, my bride,
    a spring locked, (Q)a fountain (R)sealed.
13 Your shoots are (S)an orchard of pomegranates
    with all (T)choicest fruits,
    (U)henna with (V)nard,
14 nard and saffron, (W)calamus and (X)cinnamon,
    with all trees of (Y)frankincense,
(Z)myrrh and (AA)aloes,
    with all (AB)choice spices—
15 a garden fountain, a well of (AC)living water,
    and flowing streams from (AD)Lebanon.

16 Awake, O north wind,
    and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my (AE)garden,
    let its spices flow.

Together in the Garden of Love

She

(AF)Let my beloved come to his (AG)garden,
    and eat its (AH)choicest fruits.
