New International Version

Song of Songs 4:1-16

He

1How beautiful you are, my darling!

Oh, how beautiful!

Your eyes behind your veil are doves.

Your hair is like a flock of goats

descending from the hills of Gilead.

2Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn,

coming up from the washing.

Each has its twin;

not one of them is alone.

3Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon;

your mouth is lovely.

Your temples behind your veil

are like the halves of a pomegranate.

4Your neck is like the tower of David,

built with courses of stone4:4 The meaning of the Hebrew for this phrase is uncertain.;

on it hang a thousand shields,

all of them shields of warriors.

5Your breasts are like two fawns,

like twin fawns of a gazelle

that browse among the lilies.

6Until the day breaks

and the shadows flee,

I will go to the mountain of myrrh

and to the hill of incense.

7You are altogether beautiful, my darling;

there is no flaw in you.

8Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,

come with me from Lebanon.

Descend from the crest of Amana,

from the top of Senir, the summit of Hermon,

from the lions’ dens

and the mountain haunts of leopards.

9You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride;

you have stolen my heart

with one glance of your eyes,

with one jewel of your necklace.

10How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride!

How much more pleasing is your love than wine,

and the fragrance of your perfume

more than any spice!

11Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride;

milk and honey are under your tongue.

The fragrance of your garments

is like the fragrance of Lebanon.

12You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride;

you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.

13Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates

with choice fruits,

with henna and nard,

14nard and saffron,

calamus and cinnamon,

with every kind of incense tree,

with myrrh and aloes

and all the finest spices.

15You are4:15 Or I am (spoken by She) a garden fountain,

a well of flowing water

streaming down from Lebanon.

She

16Awake, north wind,

and come, south wind!

Blow on my garden,

that its fragrance may spread everywhere.

Let my beloved come into his garden

and taste its choice fruits.

雅歌 4:1-16

男子:

1我的爱人啊,你真是美极了!

面纱掩映着那温柔如鸽的双眸,

你的秀发就好像跃下基列山冈的山羊群。

2你的牙齿如同新剪了毛的母羊,

刚从水里洗净上来,成双成对,

一颗也没有脱落。

3你的唇好像朱红丝带,

你的口娇美,

你面纱下的双颊如两瓣石榴。

4你的颈项秀丽,宛若装饰着上千英雄盾牌的大卫楼塔。

5你的胸脯好比一对在百合花间吃草的孪生小鹿。

6我要登上没药山和乳香冈,

直到晚风吹起、日影消逝。

7我的爱人啊,

你美丽动人,毫无瑕疵。

8我的新娘啊,

跟我一起离开黎巴嫩

离开黎巴嫩吧!

离开那狮豹出没的亚玛拿山顶、示尼珥山和黑门高峰吧!

9我的妹妹,我的新娘啊,

你夺去了我的心。

你的秋波一转,

你项链上的明珠一闪,

都令我倾倒。

10我的妹妹,我的新娘啊,

你的爱比美酒更香甜。

你身上洋溢的芬芳远胜过一切香料。

11我的新娘,你的嘴唇甘甜如蜜,

你的舌头底下藏着奶与蜜。

你的衣服散发的幽香,

就像黎巴嫩山芬芳怡人的气息。

12我的妹妹,我的新娘,

你是紧锁的园子,

封闭的井,隐藏的泉源。

13你好像一个美丽的果园,

结满了石榴和各种上好的果子,

也有凤仙花、哪哒树、

14哪哒和番红花、菖蒲和肉桂、

没药和沉香,

以及一切上好的香料。

15你是园中的甘泉,是活水的井,

是从黎巴嫩流下来的溪水。

女子:

16北风啊,兴起吧!

南风啊,吹来吧!

吹向我的园子,

使它的清香四溢。

愿我的良人走进自己的园中,

享受其中的珍果。
