|Song 7:1 ¶ "How beautiful are your feet in sandals,
O prince's daughter!
The curves of your hips are like jewels,
The work of the hands of an artist.

Which never lacks mixed wine.
Your belly is like a heap of wheat
Surrounded with lilies.

The twins of a gazelle.

Your eyes the [sparkling] pools of Heshbon
By the gate of Bath-rabbim.
Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon
Which looks toward Damascus.
|Song 7:5 "Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel,
And the flowing hair of your head like purple threads;
I, the king, am held captive by your tresses.
|Song 7:6 "How beautiful and how delightful you are,
My love, with all your delights!
|Song 7:7 "Your stature is like that of a palm tree
And your breasts like its clusters [of dates].
|Song 7:8 "I said, 'I will climb the palm tree;
I will grasp its branches.
Let your breasts be like clusters of the grapevine,
And the fragrance of your breath like apples,
|Song 7:9 'And your kisses like the best wine!'"

Let us spend the night in the villages. [Luke 14:33]

Let us see whether the vine has budded
And its blossoms have opened,
And whether the pomegranates have flowered.
There I will give you my love.
|Song 7:13 "The mandrakes give forth fragrance,
And over our doors are all [kinds of] choice fruits,
Both new and old,
Which I have saved up for you, my beloved.
