Song of Solomon 2
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1I am the lily of the field {Heb. Sharon} and the rose of the valleys.

2As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the virgins.

3As the apple tree among the trees of the wild, so is my beloved among the sons. I desired to sit under his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

4He brought me to the wine chamber and placed his banner of love over me.

5Sustain me with flagons of wine, strengthen me with apples; for I am sick with love.

6His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me.

7I charge you, O ye virgins of Jerusalem, by the roes and by the hinds of the field that ye not awake nor stir up love, until he pleases.

8The voice of my beloved! behold, he comes leaping over the mountains, skipping over the hills.

9My beloved is like a roe or a young hart; behold, he stands behind our wall; he looks through the windows, blossoming through the lattice.

10My beloved spoke and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

11For, behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone;

12the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the song is come, and the voice of the turtle dove has been heard in our land;

13the fig tree has put forth her green figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

14O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is beautiful.

15Hunt the foxes for us, the little foxes, that spoil the vines; for our vines are in blossom.

16My beloved is mine, and I am his; he feeds among the lilies.

17Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, return, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
