Song of Solomon 1

The Young Shulammite Bride and Jerusalem’s Daughters

1The [a]Song of Songs [the best of songs], which is Solomon’s.

[b](The Shulammite Bride)


“May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!” [Solomon arrives, she turns to him, saying,]
“For your love is better than wine.

“The aroma of your oils is fragrant and pleasing;
Your name is perfume poured out;
Therefore the maidens love you.

“Draw me away with you and let us run together!
Let the king bring me into his chambers.”

[c](The Chorus)

“We will rejoice and be glad in you;
We will remember and extol your love more [sweet and fragrant] than wine.
Rightly do they love you.”

(The Shulammite Bride)


“I am deeply tanned but lovely,
O daughters of Jerusalem,
[I am dark] like the tents of [the Bedouins of] Kedar,
Like the [beautiful] curtains of Solomon.

“Do not gaze at me because I am deeply tanned,
[I have worked in] the sun; it has left its mark on me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me;
They made me keeper of the vineyards,
But my own vineyard (my complexion) I have not kept.”

“Tell me, O you whom my soul loves,
Where do you pasture your flock,
Where do you make it lie down at noon?
For why should I be like one who is veiled
Beside the flocks of your companions?”

Solomon, the Lover, Speaks

(The Bridegroom)


“If you do not know [where your lover is],
O you fairest among women,
Run along, follow the tracks of the flock,
And pasture your young goats
By the tents of the shepherds.


“To me, my love, you are like
My [favorite] mare among the chariots of Pharaoh.
10 
“Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments,
Your neck with strings of jewels.”

(The Chorus)

11 
“We will make for you chains and ornaments of gold,
[Studded] with beads of silver.”

(The Shulammite Bride)

12 
“While the king was at his table,
My perfume (Solomon) sent forth [his] fragrance [surrounding me].
13 
“My beloved is to me like a pouch of myrrh
Which lies all night between my breasts.
14 
“My beloved is to me a cluster of henna flowers
In the [fragrant] vineyards of [d]Engedi.”

(The Bridegroom)

15 
“Behold, how beautiful you are, my darling,
Behold, how beautiful you are!
Your eyes are dove’s eyes.”

(The Shulammite Bride)

16 
“Behold, how fair and handsome you are, my beloved;
And so delightful!
Our arbor is green and luxuriant.
17 
“The beams of our houses are cedars,
Our rafters and panels are cypresses.

  1. Song of Solomon 1:1 Some theologians believe the Song of Solomon to be a collection of songs, but it is more generally understood to be a sort of drama or lyric poem celebrating the wholesomeness of a growing love that leads to maturity in marriage. The ancient rabbis understood it as an allegory of the relationship between God and Israel, and viewed the details as symbolic.
  2. Song of Solomon 1:2 The parenthetical headings indicate that the speakers are not from the Hebrew text nor the Septuagint, but reflect an ancient tradition which appears in some manuscripts.
  3. Song of Solomon 1:5 The purpose of the chorus is to echo and expand the sentiments of the bride and her bridegroom. The members of the chorus are not always known, but have been variously identified as “daughters of Jerusalem,” “daughters of Zion,” “ladies in waiting,” “friends” or “relatives” of the bride.
  4. Song of Solomon 1:14 An oasis on the western side of the Dead Sea.

아가 1

1이것은 솔로몬이 지은 노래 중의 노래이다.

첫번째 노래

(여자) 나에게 입맞춰 주세요. 당신의 사랑은 포도주보다 더 달콤합니다.

당신의 기름이 향기롭고 당신의 이름이 쏟은 향수와 같으므로 처녀들이 당신을 사랑합니다.

나를 데려가 주세요. 자, 함께 달려갑시다. 왕이 나를 자기 궁전으로 데려가셨으니 우리는 정말 행복할 것입니다. 당신의 사랑이 포도주보다 나으므로 모든 여자들이 당신을 사랑하는 것도 당연합니다.

예루살렘의 여자들아, 나는 비록 검지만 아름답단다. 내가 [a]검은 천막처럼 그을렸어도 솔로몬 궁전의 휘장처럼 아름답단다.

내 피부가 검다고 나를 흘겨보지 말아라. 햇볕에 그을렸을 뿐이란다. 내 오빠들이 화를 내어 나를 포도원에서 일하게 하였으므로 내가 몸을 돌볼 시간이 없었다.

내가 사랑하는 님이시여, 오늘은 당신이 양떼를 어디서 먹이며 정오에는 어디에서 쉬는지 말해 주세요. 어째서 내가 이리저리 방황하며 당신 친구들의 양떼 가운데서 당신을 찾아야 합니까?

(남자) 세상에서 가장 아름다운 여인이여, 그대가 나 있는 곳을 모른다면 내 양떼의 발자취를 따라 목자들의 천막 곁에서 그대의 염소 새끼를 먹이시오.

나의 사랑이여, 그대는 암망아지처럼 사랑스럽구려.

10 머리를 늘어뜨린 그대의 뺨과 목걸이로 장식한 그대의 목이 참으로 아름답소이다.

11 우리가 그대를 위해 금으로 귀고리를 만들어 은을 박아 주겠소.

12 (여자) 왕이 식탁에 앉았을 때 내 향수 냄새가 진동하였네.

13 내 사랑하는 님은 내 품속의 몰약 주머니 같고

14 [b]엔 – 게디 정원의 꽃송이 같구나.

15 (남자) 나의 사랑이여, 그대는 정말 아름답구려. 그대의 눈은 비둘기 같소이다.

16 (여자) 나의 사랑하는 님이시여, 당신은 정말 멋있고 잘생겼습니다. 우리 침대는 푸른 풀밭이요

17 우리 집의 들보는 백향목이며 서까래는 잣나무입니다.
