Colloquy of Friends and Bride

9

What is your beloved more than another beloved,

O fairest among women?

What is your beloved more than another beloved,

that you thus adjure us?

 

10

My beloved is all radiant and ruddy,

distinguished among ten thousand.

11

His head is the finest gold;

his locks are wavy,

black as a raven.

12

His eyes are like doves

beside springs of water,

bathed in milk,

fitly set.

13

His cheeks are like beds of spices,

yielding fragrance.

His lips are lilies,

distilling liquid myrrh.

14

His arms are rounded gold,

set with jewels.

His body is ivory work,

encrusted with sapphires.

15

His legs are alabaster columns,

set upon bases of gold.

His appearance is like Lebanon,

choice as the cedars.

16

His speech is most sweet,

and he is altogether desirable.

This is my beloved and this is my friend,

O daughters of Jerusalem.
