How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
“For wisdom is better than jewels; And all desirable things cannot compare with her.
My son, eat honey, for it is good, Yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste;
“I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.
Her ways are pleasant ways And all her paths are peace.
“ May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine.
“ I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh along with my balsam. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk. Eat, friends; Drink and imbibe deeply, O lovers.”
