Song of Solomon Chapter 2 (Index)

001  I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

002  As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.

003  As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

004  He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

005  Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.

006  His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.

007  I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

008  The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.

009  My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, showing himself through the lattice.

010  My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

011  For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

012  The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

013  The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

014  O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

015  Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

016  My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.

017  Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
