'Spice' in the Bible
How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine; the fragrance of your perfume is better than any spice!
nard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon with every kind of spice, myrrh and aloes with all the finest spices.
I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
His cheeks are like beds of spice, towers of perfume. His lips are lilies, dripping with flowing myrrh.
My love has gone down to his garden, to beds of spice, to feed in the gardens and gather lilies.
