Song of Solomon 6
English Standard Version
6 Where has your beloved gone,
O (A)most beautiful among women?
Where has your beloved turned,
that we may seek him with you?
Together in the Garden of Love
Solomon and His Bride Delight in Each Other
4 You are beautiful as (G)Tirzah, (H)my love,
(I)lovely as (J)Jerusalem,
(K)awesome as an army with banners.
5 Turn away your eyes from me,
for they overwhelm me—
(L)Your hair is like a flock of goats
leaping down the slopes of Gilead.
6 (M)Your teeth are like a flock of ewes
that have come up from the washing;
all of them bear twins;
not one among them has lost its young.
7 (N)Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
behind your veil.
8 There are (O)sixty (P)queens and eighty (Q)concubines,
and (R)virgins without number.
9 My (S)dove, my (T)perfect one, is the only one,
the only one of her mother,
pure to (U)her who bore her.
(V)The young women saw her and called her blessed;
(W)the queens and (X)concubines also, and they praised her.
11 I went down to the nut orchard
to look at (AA)the blossoms of the valley,
(AB)to see whether the vines had budded,
whether the pomegranates were in bloom.
12 (AC)Before I was aware, my desire set me
among (AD)the chariots of my kinsman, a prince.[b]
