Song of Solomon 7:7-9 World English Bible (WEB)

This, your stature, is like a palm tree,
    your breasts like its fruit.
I said, “I will climb up into the palm tree.
    I will take hold of its fruit.”
Let your breasts be like clusters of the vine,
    the smell of your breath like apples,

Beloved

Your mouth like the best wine,
    that goes down smoothly for my beloved,
    gliding through the lips of those who are asleep.

Song of Songs 7:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

Your stature is like that of the palm,
    and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
I said, “I will climb the palm tree;
    I will take hold of its fruit.”
May your breasts be like clusters of grapes on the vine,
    the fragrance of your breath like apples,
    and your mouth like the best wine.

She

May the wine go straight to my beloved,
    flowing gently over lips and teeth.[a]
