Song of Songs 1

1Solomon’s Song of Songs.

She[a]

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
    for your love is more delightful than wine.
Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
    your name is like perfume poured out.
    No wonder the young women love you!
Take me away with you—let us hurry!
    Let the king bring me into his chambers.

Friends

We rejoice and delight in you[b];
    we will praise your love more than wine.

She

How right they are to adore you!

Dark am I, yet lovely,
    daughters of Jerusalem,
dark like the tents of Kedar,
    like the tent curtains of Solomon.[c]
Do 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.
Tell 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

If 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

I liken you, my darling, to a mare
    among Pharaoh’s chariot horses.
10 Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings,
    your neck with strings of jewels.
11 We will make you earrings of gold,
    studded with silver.

She

12 While the king was at his table,
    my perfume spread its fragrance.
13 My beloved is to me a sachet of myrrh
    resting between my breasts.
14 My beloved is to me a cluster of henna blossoms
    from the vineyards of En Gedi.

He

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

She

16 How handsome you are, my beloved!
    Oh, how charming!
    And our bed is verdant.

He

17 The beams of our house are cedars;
    our rafters are firs.

Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

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.
