Song Of Songs Of Solomon by Madame Guyon
Anglican version. Vulgate.
1. Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? Whither is thy beloved turned aside? that we may seek him with thee.2. My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens and to gather lilies.1.
3. I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.2.
4. Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.3. Thou art beautiful, O my love, sweet and comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army set in array.5. Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me; thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead.4. Turn away thine eyes from me, because they have made me to flee away; thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead.
6. Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.5.
7. As a piece of pomegranate are thy temples within thy locks.6. As the rind of a pomegranate are thy cheeks, besides that which is hidden within.
8. There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number.7.
9. My dove, my undefiled, is but one, she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her and blessed her, yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.8.
10. Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners? 9. Who is she that cometh forth as the rising morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army in battle array?
11. I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley and to see whether the vine flourished and the pomegranates budded.10.12. Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Aminadib.11. I know nothing, my soul troubled me on account of the chariots of Aminadab.
13. Return, return, O Shulamite! return, return, that we may look upon thee.12. Return, return, O Shulamite! return, return that we may look upon thee.
What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies.
