The Torment of Separation

1 "I F70 have come R130 into my garden, my R131 sister, my bride;

I have gathered my myrrh R132 along with my balsam.

I have eaten my honeycomb and F71 my honey; R133

I have drunk R134 my wine and F71 my milk.

Eat, friends; R135

Drink and imbibe F72 deeply, O lovers."

2 "I F73 was asleep but my heart was awake.

A voice! My beloved was knocking:

`Open to me, my R136 sister, my darling,

My R137 dove, my perfect one!

For my head is drenched F74 with dew,

My locks R138 with the damp F75 of the night.'

3 "I have taken R139 off my dress,

How can I put it on again?

I have washed R140 my feet,

How can I dirty them again?

4 "My beloved extended his hand through the opening,

And my feelings R141 F76 were aroused for him.

5 "I arose to open to my beloved;

And my hands dripped R142 with myrrh,

And my fingers with liquid F77 myrrh,

On the handles of the bolt.

6 "I opened to my beloved,

But my beloved had turned R143 away and had gone!

My heart F78 went out to him as he spoke. R144

I searched R145 for him but I did not find him;

I called R146 him but he did not answer me.

7 "The watchmen R147 who make the rounds in the city found me,

They struck me and wounded me;

The guardsmen of the walls took away my shawl from me.

8 "I adjure R148 you, O daughters of Jerusalem,

If you find my beloved,

As to what you will tell him:

For I R149 am lovesick."

9 "<,>What F80 F79 kind of beloved is your beloved,

O most R150 beautiful among women?

What F80 kind of beloved is your beloved,

That thus you adjure us?"

Admiration by the Bride

10 "My F81 beloved is dazzling and ruddy, R151

Outstanding R152 F82 among ten thousand.

11 "His head is like gold, pure gold;

His locks R153 are like clusters of dates

And black as a raven.

12 "His eyes R154 are like doves

Beside streams of water,

Bathed in milk,

And reposed F83 in their setting. R155

13 "His cheeks are like a bed R156 of balsam,

Banks of sweet-scented herbs;

His lips are lilies R157

Dripping R158 with liquid myrrh.

14 "His hands are rods of gold

Set with beryl; R159

His abdomen is carved ivory

Inlaid with sapphires. R160 F84

15 "His legs are pillars of alabaster

Set on pedestals of pure gold;

His appearance is like Lebanon R161

Choice as the cedars. R162

16 "His mouth R163 F85 is full of sweetness.

And he is wholly desirable. R164

This is my beloved and this is my friend,

O daughters of Jerusalem."
