I compare you, (A)my love,
    to (B)a mare among Pharaoh's chariots.
10 (C)Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments,
    your neck with strings of jewels.

Others

11 We will make for you[a] ornaments of gold,
    studded with silver.

She

12 While (D)the king was on his couch,
    my (E)nard gave forth its fragrance.
13 My beloved is to me a sachet of (F)myrrh
    that lies between my breasts.
14 My beloved is to me a cluster of (G)henna blossoms
    in the vineyards of (H)Engedi.

He

15 (I)Behold, (J)you are beautiful, (K)my love;
    behold, you are beautiful;
    your (L)eyes are doves.

She

16 Behold, you are beautiful, (M)my beloved, truly (N)delightful.
Our couch is green;
17     the beams of our house are (O)cedar;
    our rafters are (P)pine.
