Song of Songs 2:8-14 New International Version (NIV)
8 Listen! My beloved!
14 My dove in the clefts of the rock,
Song of Solomon 2:8-14 King James Version (KJV)
8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

Song of Solomon 2:8-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
