16 Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant:
Also our couch is green.

And our rafters are [c]firs.
I am a [d]rose of [e]Sharon,
A lily of the valleys.

Song of Solomon 2:12-17 American Standard Version (ASV)

12 The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the [a]singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land;
13 The fig-tree ripeneth her green figs,
And the vines are in blossom;
They give forth their fragrance.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock,
In the covert of the steep place,
Let me see thy countenance,
Let me hear thy voice;
For sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes,
That spoil the vineyards;
For our vineyards are in blossom.
16 My beloved is mine, and I am his:
He feedeth his flock among the lilies.
17 [b]Until the day [c]be cool, and the shadows flee away,
Turn, my beloved, and be thou like a [d]roe or a young hart
Upon the [e]mountains of [f]Bether.
