Song of Songs 2

2:1 As a lily among the thorns, 2:2 So [is] my friend among the daughters!  2:3 As a citron among trees of the forest, So [is] my beloved among the sons, In his shade I delighted, and sat down, And his fruit [is] sweet to my palate. 2:4 He hath brought me in unto a house of wine, And his banner over me [is] love, 2:5 Sustain me with grape-cakes, Support me with citrons, for I [am] sick with love. 2:6 His left hand [is] under my head, And his right doth embrace me. 2:7 I have adjured you, daughters of Jerusalem, By the roes or by the hinds of the field, Stir not up nor wake the love till she please!  2:8 The voice of my beloved! lo, this--he is coming, Leaping on the mountains, skipping on the hills. 2:9 My beloved [is] like to a roe, Or to a young one of the harts. Lo, this--he is standing behind our wall, Looking from the windows, Blooming from the lattice. 2:10 My beloved hath answered and said to me, `Rise up, my friend, my fair one, and come away, 2:11 For lo, the winter hath passed by, The rain hath passed away--it hath gone. 2:12 The flowers have appeared in the earth, The time of the singing hath come, And the voice of the turtle was heard in our land, 2:13 The fig-tree hath ripened her green figs, And the sweet-smelling vines have given forth fragrance, Rise, come, my friend, my fair one, yea, come away.  2:14 My dove, in clefts of the rock, In a secret place of the ascent, Cause me to see thine appearance, Cause me to hear thy voice, For thy voice [is] sweet, and thy appearance comely. 2:15 Seize ye for us foxes, Little foxes--destroyers of vineyards, Even our sweet-smelling vineyards. 2:16 My beloved [is] mine, and I [am] his, Who is delighting among the lilies, 2:17 Till the day doth break forth, And the shadows have fled away, Turn, be like, my beloved, To a roe, or to a young one of the harts, On the mountains of separation!
