Song of Solomon 1

The Young Shulammite Bride and Jerusalem’s Daughters

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

[b]May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!
For your love is better than wine.
“Your oils have a pleasing fragrance,
Your name is like [c]purified oil;
Therefore the [d]maidens love you.
“Draw me after you and let us run together!
The king has brought me into his chambers.”

[e]We will rejoice in you and be glad;
We will [f]extol your love more than wine.
Rightly do they love you.”

[g]I am black but lovely,
O daughters of Jerusalem,
Like the tents of Kedar,
Like the curtains of Solomon.
“Do not stare at me because I am [h]swarthy,
For the sun has burned me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me;
They made me caretaker of the vineyards,
But I have not taken care of my own vineyard.
“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 [i]veils herself
Beside the flocks of your companions?”

Solomon, the Lover, Speaks

[j]If you yourself do not know,
Most beautiful among women,
Go forth on the trail of the flock
And pasture your young goats
By the tents of the shepherds.

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

11 [l]We will make for you ornaments of gold
With beads of silver.”

12 [m]While the king was at his [n]table,
My [o]perfume gave forth its fragrance.
13 “My beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh
Which lies all night between my breasts.
14 “My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms
In the vineyards of Engedi.”

15 [p][q]How beautiful you are, my darling,
[r]How beautiful you are!
Your eyes are like doves.”

16 [s][t]How handsome you are, my beloved,
And so pleasant!
Indeed, our couch is luxuriant!
17 “The beams of our houses are cedars,
Our rafters, [u]cypresses.

雅歌 1

1這是所羅門的歌,是歌中最美妙的歌。

女子:

深深地吻我吧!
因為你的愛情比美酒更香甜。
你的美名如此芬芳,
如同倒出來的香膏,
難怪少女們都愛慕你。
你帶我走,讓我們一起奔跑吧!
王啊,把我帶進你的寢宮吧!

耶路撒冷的少女:

我們為你歡喜快樂,
我們要頌揚你那勝似美酒的愛情。

女子:

難怪少女們都愛慕你!
耶路撒冷的少女啊!
我雖然黑似基達的帳篷,
卻美如所羅門的錦帳。
不要因為我被太陽曬黑就看不起我。
這是因為我的兄弟惱恨我,
要我在烈日之下看守葡萄園,
使我無暇照顧自己[a]
我心愛的人啊,告訴我吧,
你在哪裡牧羊?
中午帶羊去哪裡歇息?
我何必在你同伴的羊群旁流浪,
像風塵女子一樣呢?

耶路撒冷的少女:

絕色佳人啊!
要是你不知道,
就跟著羊群的足跡,
到牧人的帳篷邊餵養你的山羊羔吧。

男子:

我的愛人啊,
你好比法老戰車上套的牝馬,
引人注目。
10 耳環輝映你的臉頰,
珠鏈輕襯你的頸項。
11 我們要為你打造鑲有銀珠的金飾。

女子:

12 王坐席的時候,
我身上的哪噠香膏芬芳四溢。
13 我的良人靠在我懷中,
如同一袋沒藥。
14 我的良人在我眼中,
好像隱·基底葡萄園中的鳳仙花。

男子:

15 我的愛人啊!
你真是美極了!美極了!
你的眼神純情專一,好像鴿子的眼睛。

女子:

16 我的良人啊!
你真英俊!真可愛!
我們以青草作床榻,
17 以香柏樹作屋樑,
以松樹作椽子。
