Song Of Songs Of Solomon by Madame Guyon

CHAPTER VII

Anglican version. Vulgate.
1. What will ye see in the Shulamite, but the companies of camps? 1. How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels the work of the hands of a cunning workman. How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels the work of the hands of a cunning workman.
2. Thy navel is like a round goblet which wanteth not liquor, thy belly is like a heap of wheat set about with lilies.2.
3. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins.3.4. Thy neck is as a tower of ivory, thine eyes like the fish-pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim; thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looked toward Damascus.4. Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes like the fish-pools in Heshbon, which are in the gate of the daughter of the multitude, thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.
5. Thine head upon thee is like Carmel; and the hair of thine head like purple, the King is held in the galleries.5. Thine head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like the King's purple, bound by the channels.
6. How fair and how pleasant art thou, O Love, for delights! 6.7. This thy stature is like to a palm tree and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.7.
8. I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof; now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples; 8. I said, I will go up to the palm-tree, and I will take hold of the fruit thereof; and thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy mouth like that of apples.
9. And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.9. Thy throat is like the best wine fit for my beloved to drink, and to be dwelt upon with delight by his lips and teeth.
10. I am my beloved's, and his desire is towards me.10.11. Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.11.
12. Let us get up early to the vineyard; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth; there will I give thee my loves.12. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, if the flowers bring forth fruit, and the pomegranate has blossomed; there will I give thee my breasts.
13. The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.13.
