New Amharic Standard Version

ማሕልየ መሓልይ 1:1-17

1ከመዝሙር ሁሉ የሚበልጥ የሰሎሞን መዝሙር።

ሙሽራዪቱ

2በከንፈሩ መሳም ይሳመኝ

ፍቅርህ ከወይን ጠጅ ይልቅ ደስ ያሰኛልና።

3የሽቱህ መዐዛ ደስ ያሰኛል፤

ስምህ እንደሚፈስ ሽቱ ነው፤

ታዲያ ቈነጃጅት ቢወዱህ ምን ያስደንቃል

4ይዘኸኝ ሂድ፤ እንፍጠን፤

ንጉሡ ወደ ዕልፍኞቹ አምጥቶኛል።

ባልንጀሮቿ

በአንተ1፥4 በዕብራይስጥ ነጠላ ተባዕታይ ነው። ደስ ይለናል፤ ሐሤትም እናደርጋለን፤

ከወይን ጠጅ ይልቅ ፍቅርህን እንወድሳለን።

ሙሽራዪቱ

አንተን እንደዚህ ማፍቀራቸው ትክክል ነው።

5እናንት የኢየሩሳሌም ቈነጃጅት ሆይ፤

እኔ ጥቊር ነኝ፤ ይሁን እንጂ ውብ ነኝ፤

ጥቊረቴ እንደ ቄዳር ድንኳኖች፣

እንደ ሰሎሞን1፥5 ወይም ሳልማ ቤተ መንግሥት መጋረጃዎችም ነው።

6ጥቊር ስለ ሆንሁ ትኵር ብላችሁ አትዩኝ፤

መልኬን ያጠቈረው ፀሓይ ነውና፤

የእናቴ ልጆች ወንድሞቼ ተቈጡኝ፤

የወይን ተክል ቦታዎችም ጠባቂ አደረጉኝ፤

የራሴን የወይን ተክል ቦታ ተውሁት።

7ውዴ ሆይ፤ መንጋህን የት እንደምታሰማራ፣

በቀትርም የት እንደምትመስጋቸው

እባክህ ንገረኝ፤

በወዳጆችህ መንጎች ኋላ፣

ፊቷን ሸፍና እንደምትቅበዘበዝ ሴት ለምን ልሁን?

ባልንጀሮቿ

8አንቺ ከሴቶች ሁሉ ይበልጥ የተዋብሽ ሆይ፤ የማታውቂ ከሆነ፣

የበጎቹን ዱካ ተከተዪ፤

የፍየል ግልገሎችሽንም፣

በእረኞቹ ድንኳን አጠገብ አሰማሪ።

ሙሽራው

9ውዴ ሆይ፤ የፈርዖንን ሠረገሎች ከሚስቡ ፈረሶች መካከል፣

በአንዲቱ ባዝራ መሰልሁሽ።

10ጒንጮችሽ በጒትቻ፣

ዐንገትሽም በዕንቊ ሐብል አጊጠዋል።

11እኛም ባለ ብር ፈርጥ፣

የወርቅ ጒትቻ እናሠራልሻለን።

ሙሽራዪቱ

12ንጉሡ ማእዱ ላይ ሳለ፣

ሽቱዬ መዐዛውን ናኘው።

13ውዴ ለእኔ በጡቶቼ መካከል እንዳረፈ፣

በመቋጠሪያ እንዳለ ከርቤ ነው።

14ውዴ ለእኔ ከዓይንጋዲ የወይን ተክል ቦታ፣

እንደ መጣ የሄና አበባ ዕቅፍ ነው።

ሙሽራው

15ውዴ ሆይ፤ እንዴት ውብ ነሽ

እንዴትስ ያለሽ ቈንጆ ነሽ

ዐይኖችሽም እንደ ርግብ ዐይኖች ናቸው።

ሙሽራዪቱ

16አንተ ውዴ ሆይ፤ እንዴት ውብ ነህ

እንዴትስ ታምራለህ

ዐልጋችንም እንደ ለምለም ሣር ነው።

ሙሽራው

17የቤታችን ተሻካሚዎች ዝግባዎች፣

የጣራችን ማዋቀሪያዎችም ጥዶች ናቸው።

Song of Songs 1:1-17

1Solomon’s Song of Songs.

SheThe main male and female speakers (identified primarily on the basis of the gender of the relevant Hebrew forms) are indicated by the captions He and She respectively. The words of others are marked Friends. In some instances the divisions and their captions are debatable.

2Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—

for your love is more delightful than wine.

3Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;

your name is like perfume poured out.

No wonder the young women love you!

4Take me away with you—let us hurry!

Let the king bring me into his chambers.

Friends

We rejoice and delight in you1:4 The Hebrew is masculine singular.;

we will praise your love more than wine.

She

How right they are to adore you!

5Dark am I, yet lovely,

daughters of Jerusalem,

dark like the tents of Kedar,

like the tent curtains of Solomon.1:5 Or Salma

6Do not stare at me because I am dark,

because I am darkened by the sun.

My mother’s sons were angry with me

and made me take care of the vineyards;

my own vineyard I had to neglect.

7Tell me, you whom I love,

where you graze your flock

and where you rest your sheep at midday.

Why should I be like a veiled woman

beside the flocks of your friends?

Friends

8If you do not know, most beautiful of women,

follow the tracks of the sheep

and graze your young goats

by the tents of the shepherds.

He

9I liken you, my darling, to a mare

among Pharaoh’s chariot horses.

10Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings,

your neck with strings of jewels.

11We will make you earrings of gold,

studded with silver.

She

12While the king was at his table,

my perfume spread its fragrance.

13My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh

resting between my breasts.

14My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms

from the vineyards of En Gedi.

He

15How beautiful you are, my darling!

Oh, how beautiful!

Your eyes are doves.

She

16How handsome you are, my beloved!

Oh, how charming!

And our bed is verdant.

He

17The beams of our house are cedars;

our rafters are firs.
