Song of Songs 4:1-7 - Groom's Praise Of His Bride

1 "How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves behind your veil; Your hair is like a flock of goats That have descended from Mount Gilead. 2 "Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes Which have come up from their washing, All of which bear twins, And not one among them has lost her young. 3 "Your lips are like a scarlet thread, And your mouth is lovely Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate Behind your veil. 4 "Your neck is like the tower of David, Built with rows of stones On which are hung a thousand shields, All the round shields of the mighty men. 5 "Your two breasts are like two fawns, Twins of a gazelle Which feed among the lilies. 6 "Until the cool of the day When the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh And to the hill of frankincense. 7 "You are altogether beautiful, my darling, And there is no blemish in you.
