1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, The work of the hands of a skillful workman.

2 Your body is [like] a round goblet, [In which] no mingled wine is wanting: Your waist is [like] a heap of wheat Set about with lilies.

3 Your two breasts are like two fawns That are twins of a roe.

4 Your neck is like the tower of ivory; Your eyes [as] the pools in Heshbon, By the gate of Bath-rabbim; Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon Which looks toward Damascus.

5 Your head on you is like Carmel, And the hair of your head like purple; The king is held captive in the tresses [of it].

6 How fair and how pleasant are you, [O] love, daughter of delight.

7 Your stature is like a palm-tree, And your breasts to its clusters.

8 I said, I will climb up into the palm-tree, I will take hold of its branches: Let your breasts be as clusters of the vine, And the smell of your breath like apples,

9 And your mouth like the best wine, That goes down smoothly for my beloved, Gliding through the lips of those who are asleep.

10 I am my beloved's; And his desire is toward me.

11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; Let us lodge in the villages.

12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; Let us see whether the vine has budded, [And] its blossom is open, [And] the pomegranates are in flower: There I will give you my love.

13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance; And at our doors are all manner of precious fruits, new and old, Which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
