- (7:2) How beautiful are thy steps in sandals, O prince"s daughter!
The roundings of thy thighs are like the links of a chain, the work of the hands of a skilled workman.
- (7:3) Thy navel is like a round goblet, wherein no mingled wine is wanting;
thy belly is like a heap of wheat set about with lilies.
- (7:4) Thy two breasts are like two fawns that are twins of a gazelle.
- (7:5) Thy neck is as a tower of ivory;
thine eyes as the pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim;
thy nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.
- (7:6) Thy head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like purple;
the king is held captive in the tresses thereof.
- (7:7) How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!
- (7:8) This thy stature is like to a palm-tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
- (7:9) I said: "I will climb up into the palm-tree, I will take hold of the branches thereof;
and let thy breasts be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy countenance like apples;
- (7:10) And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine, that glideth down smoothly for my beloved, moving gently the lips of those that are asleep."
- (7:11) I am my beloved"s, and his desire is toward me.
- (7:12) Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field;
let us lodge in the villages.
- (7:13) Let us get up early to the vineyards;
let us see whether the vine hath budded, whether the vine-blossom be opened, and the pomegranates be in flower;
there will I give thee my love.
- (7:14) The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and at our doors are all manner of precious fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
