Oluyimba 1

1Oluyimba lwa Sulemaani olusinga ennyimba zonna.

Omwagalwa

Leka annywegere n’emimwa gye
    kubanga okwagala kwo kusinga envinnyo,
n’amafuta go gawunya akaloosa akalungi;
    erinnya lyo liri ng’amafuta agattululwa,
    era abawala kyebava bakwagala.
Baako ne gy’ontwala, yanguwa!
    Kabaka ansembezezza kumpi nnyo antutte mu bisenge bye.

Abemikwano

Tunaasanyuka ne tukujagulizaamu;
    era tunaatendereza okwagala kwo okusinga envinnyo.

Omwagalwa

Nga batuufu okukwegomba!

Ndi muddugavu, ndi mulungi,
    Mmwe abawala ba Yerusaalemi
muli ng’eweema ez’e Kedali,[a]
    era ng’entimbe za Sulemaani.
Temuntunuulira kubanga ndi muddugavu,
    olw’okuba omusana gunjokezza.
Batabani ba mmange baansunguwalira;
    ne bandagira okukuuma ennimiro ez’emizabbibu.
    Ennimiro yange ngigayaaliridde.
Ntegeeza ggwe gwe njagala, gy’oliisiza ekisibo kyo,
    ne gy’owumuliza endiga zo mu ssaawa ez’omu ttuntu.
Lwaki mbeera ng’omukazi eyeebisse amaaso
    nga nninaanye ebisibo eby’abanywanyi bo?

Abemikwano

Bw’oba nga tomanyi, ggwe omukyala asinga bonna obulungi,
    goberera ekkubo endiga lye zikutte,
ogende oliisize embuzi zo ento,
    okumpi n’eweema z’abasumba.

Owoomukwano

Omwagalwa wange,
    nkugeraageranya n’embalaasi esika amagaali ga Falaawo.
10 Amatama go galabika bulungi ng’oyambadde ebikomo eby’oku matu,
    n’ensingo yo nerabika bulungi ng’erimu eby’omu bulago eby’omuwendo.
11 Tunaakukolera eby’oku matu ebya zaabu,
    nga birina amapeesa aga ffeeza.

Omwagalwa

12 Kabaka bwe yali ng’atudde ku mmeeza ye,
    akawoowo kange ne kamuwunyira bulungi.
13 Muganzi wange ali ng’ensawo eya kaloosa aka mooli[b] gye ndi,
    ng’awummulidde mu kifuba kyange.
14 Muganzi wange ali ng’ekiganda eky’ebimuli ebya kofera[c]
    ebivudde mu nnimiro ez’emizabbibu ez’e Engedi.[d]

Owoomukwano

15 Laba, oli mubalagavu, omwagalwa wange
    oli mubalagavu olabika bulungi.
    Amaaso go mayiba.

Omwagalwa

16 Olabika bulungi muganzi wange,
    era onsanyusa.
    Ekitanda kyaffe kya muddo muto.

Owoomukwano

17 Emikiikiro gy’ennyumba yaffe mivule,
    n’enzooba zaffe nkanaga.

New Living Translation

Song of Solomon 1

1This is Solomon’s song of songs, more wonderful than any other.

Young Woman[a]

Kiss me and kiss me again,
    for your love is sweeter than wine.
How pleasing is your fragrance;
    your name is like the spreading fragrance of scented oils.
    No wonder all the young women love you!
Take me with you; come, let’s run!
    The king has brought me into his bedroom.

Young Women of Jerusalem

How happy we are for you, O king.
    We praise your love even more than wine.

Young Woman

How right they are to adore you.

I am dark but beautiful,
    O women of Jerusalem—
dark as the tents of Kedar,
    dark as the curtains of Solomon’s tents.
Don’t stare at me because I am dark—
    the sun has darkened my skin.
My brothers were angry with me;
    they forced me to care for their vineyards,
    so I couldn’t care for myself—my own vineyard.

Tell me, my love, where are you leading your flock today?
    Where will you rest your sheep at noon?
For why should I wander like a prostitute[b]
    among your friends and their flocks?

Young Man

If you don’t know, O most beautiful woman,
    follow the trail of my flock,
    and graze your young goats by the shepherds’ tents.
You are as exciting, my darling,
    as a mare among Pharaoh’s stallions.
10 How lovely are your cheeks;
    your earrings set them afire!
How lovely is your neck,
    enhanced by a string of jewels.
11 We will make for you earrings of gold
    and beads of silver.

Young Woman

12 The king is lying on his couch,
    enchanted by the fragrance of my perfume.
13 My lover is like a sachet of myrrh
    lying between my breasts.
14 He is like a bouquet of sweet henna blossoms
    from the vineyards of En-gedi.

Young Man

15 How beautiful you are, my darling,
    how beautiful!
    Your eyes are like doves.

Young Woman

16 You are so handsome, my love,
    pleasing beyond words!
The soft grass is our bed;
17     fragrant cedar branches are the beams of our house,
    and pleasant smelling firs are the rafters.
