Song of Solomon 4:1-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Solomon’s Love Expressed

[a][b]How beautiful you are, my darling,
[c]How beautiful you are!
Your eyes are like doves behind your veil;
Your hair is like a flock of goats
That have descended from Mount Gilead.
“Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes
Which have come up from their washing,
All of which bear twins,
And not one among them has [d]lost her young.
“Your lips are like a scarlet thread,
And your mouth is lovely.
Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate
Behind your veil.
“Your neck is like the tower of David,
Built [e]with rows of stones
On which are hung a thousand shields,
All the round shields of the mighty men.
“Your two breasts are like two fawns,
Twins of a gazelle
Which feed among the lilies.
Until [f]the cool of the day
When the shadows flee away,
I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh
And to the hill of frankincense.

You are altogether beautiful, my darling,
And there is no blemish in you.
