Song of Songs 6:1-13

Friends

1Where has your beloved gone,

most beautiful of women?

Which way did your beloved turn,

that we may look for him with you?

She

2My beloved has gone down to his garden,

to the beds of spices,

to browse in the gardens

and to gather lilies.

3I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;

he browses among the lilies.

He

4You are as beautiful as Tirzah, my darling,

as lovely as Jerusalem,

as majestic as troops with banners.

5Turn your eyes from me;

they overwhelm me.

Your hair is like a flock of goats

descending from Gilead.

6Your teeth are like a flock of sheep

coming up from the washing.

Each has its twin,

not one of them is missing.

7Your temples behind your veil

are like the halves of a pomegranate.

8Sixty queens there may be,

and eighty concubines,

and virgins beyond number;

9but my dove, my perfect one, is unique,

the only daughter of her mother,

the favorite of the one who bore her.

The young women saw her and called her blessed;

the queens and concubines praised her.

Friends

10Who is this that appears like the dawn,

fair as the moon, bright as the sun,

majestic as the stars in procession?

He

11I went down to the grove of nut trees

to look at the new growth in the valley,

to see if the vines had budded

or the pomegranates were in bloom.

12Before I realized it,

my desire set me among the royal chariots of my people.6:12 Or among the chariots of Amminadab; or among the chariots of the people of the prince

13Come back, come back, O Shulammite;

come back, come back, that we may gaze on you!

He

Why would you gaze on the Shulammite

as on the dance of Mahanaim?6:13 In Hebrew texts this verse (6:13) is numbered 7:1.

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

雅歌 6:1-13

耶路撒冷的少女:

1绝色的佳人啊,

你的良人去了何处?

你的良人转往何方?

我们好帮你寻找他。

女子:

2我的良人下到自己的园中,

在香草花圃中牧放他的羊群,

采集百合花。

3我属于我的良人,

我的良人也属于我。

他在百合花间牧放羊群。

男子:

4我的爱人啊,

你像得撒一样秀丽,

耶路撒冷一样佳美,

像旌旗飘扬的军队一样威严。

5求你把视线移开吧,

因为你的眼波使我迷乱。

你的秀发像从基列山坡下来的山羊群。

6你的牙齿白得像一群洗干净的母羊,

成双成对,

一颗也没有脱落。

7你面纱下的双颊如两瓣石榴。

8虽有六十个王后,

八十个妃嫔和无数的宫女,

9但我完美无瑕的小鸽子独一无二,

她是她母亲的独女和最爱。

众女子看见她都夸她有福,

王后和妃嫔见了也连连称赞她,说:

10“这位灿烂似晨光,

皎洁如明月,耀眼如太阳,

亮丽如布满天际之星辰6:10 布满天际之星辰”希伯来文是“威严如旌旗飘扬的军队”,希伯来人常把星星比作天上的军队。的是谁呢?”

11我下到核桃园中,

要看看谷中嫩绿的植物,

看看葡萄树是否已发芽,

石榴树是否正在开花。

12不知不觉,

我的心把我带到我尊长的车上。

耶路撒冷的少女:

13回来吧,回来吧,

书拉密的少女!

回来吧,回来吧,

好让我们再看看你!

男子:

你们为何目不转睛地看着书拉密的少女,

好像观看玛哈念的舞蹈呢?
