Song of Songs 4:10-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

10 How beautiful is your love,
    my sister, my bride,
How much better is your love than wine,
    and the fragrance of your perfumes than any spice!
11 Your lips drip honey,[a] my bride,
    honey and milk are under your tongue;
And the fragrance of your garments
    is like the fragrance of Lebanon.


  1. 4:11 Honey: sweet words (cf. Prv 5:3) or perhaps kisses (1:2–3). Honey and milk: familiar descriptions for the fertile promised land (Ex 3:8, 17; Lv 20:24; Nm 13:27; Dt 6:3).
