Song of Solomon 1:4-6
New American Standard Bible
4 Draw me after you and let’s run together!
The (A)king has brought me into his chambers.”
“We will rejoice in you and be joyful;
We will praise your (B)love more than wine.
Rightly do they love you.”
5 “I am black and (C)beautiful,
You (D)daughters of Jerusalem,
Like the (E)tents of (F)Kedar,
Like the curtains of Solomon.
6 Do not stare at me because I am [a]dark,
For the sun has tanned me.
My (G)mother’s sons were angry with me;
They made me (H)caretaker of the vineyards,
But I have not taken care of my own vineyard.
