'Darling' in the Bible
I compare you, my darling, to a mare among Pharaoh's chariots.
How beautiful you are, my darling. How very beautiful! Your eyes are doves.
Like a lily among thorns, so is my darling among the young women.
My love calls to me: Arise, my darling. Come away, my beautiful one.
The fig tree ripens its figs; the blossoming vines give off their fragrance. Arise, my darling. Come away, my beautiful one.
How beautiful you are, my darling. How very beautiful! Behind your veil, your eyes are doves. Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down Mount Gilead.
You are absolutely beautiful, my darling, with no imperfection in you.
I sleep, but my heart is awake. A sound! My love is knocking! Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my perfect one. For my head is drenched with dew, my hair with droplets of the night.
