Song of Solomon 6:13-7:6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

13 [a] Return, return, O Shu′lammite,
    return, return, that we may look upon you.

Why should you look upon the Shu′lammite,
    as upon a dance before two armies?[b]

Expressions of Praise

How graceful are your feet in sandals,
    O queenly maiden!
Your rounded thighs are like jewels,
    the work of a master hand.
Your navel is a rounded bowl
    that never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is a heap of wheat,
    encircled with lilies.
Your two breasts are like two fawns,
    twins of a gazelle.
Your neck is like an ivory tower.
Your eyes are pools in Heshbon,
    by the gate of Bath-rab′bim.
Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon,
    overlooking Damascus.
Your head crowns you like Carmel,
    and your flowing locks are like purple;
    a king is held captive in the tresses.[c]

How fair and pleasant you are,
    O loved one, delectable maiden![d]
