Song of Songs 1:7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Won’t you tell me, lover of my soul,
where do you feed your flock?
Where do you lead your beloved ones[a]
to rest in the heat of the day?
For I wish to be wrapped all around you
as I wander among the flocks of your shepherds.
It is you I long for, with no veil between us![b]

Footnotes:

  1. Song of Songs 1:7 She sees her beloved as a shepherd. This is a metaphor of the role he takes in her eyes. We need not develop a literal storyline of a lover and a shepherd, but a representation of the relationship between you and your Beloved, which cannot be described by one symbol or role.
  2. Song of Songs 1:7 The Hebrew uses the verb ‘atah, which means “to wrap [cloak/veil].” The Aramaic and Latin Vulgate use the verb for “to wander.” This translation has included both concepts.
