1All night long on my bed I looked for the one my heart loves; I looked for him but did not find him.1On my bed by night I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but found him not.1"On my bed night after night I sought him Whom my soul loves; I sought him but did not find him.1By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.1 In my bed at night I sought the one I love; I sought him, but did not find him.
2I will get up now and go about the city, through its streets and squares; I will search for the one my heart loves. So I looked for him but did not find him.2I will rise now and go about the city, in the streets and in the squares; I will seek him whom my soul loves. I sought him, but found him not.2'I must arise now and go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I must seek him whom my soul loves.' I sought him but did not find him.2I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.2I will arise now and go about the city, through the streets and the plazas. I will seek the one I love. I sought him, but did not find him.
3The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city. "Have you seen the one my heart loves?"3The watchmen found me as they went about in the city. “Have you seen him whom my soul loves?”3"The watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me, And I said, 'Have you seen him whom my soul loves?'3The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?3The guards who go about the city found me. I asked them, "Have you seen the one I love?"
4Scarcely had I passed them when I found the one my heart loves. I held him and would not let him go till I had brought him to my mother's house, to the room of the one who conceived me.4Scarcely had I passed them when I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her who conceived me.4"Scarcely had I left them When I found him whom my soul loves; I held on to him and would not let him go Until I had brought him to my mother's house, And into the room of her who conceived me."4It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.4I had just passed them when I found the one I love. I held on to him and would not let him go until I brought him to my mother's house-- to the chamber of the one who conceived me.
