Song of Solomon 7:1-10
How beautiful are your feet in sandals,O noble daughter!Your rounded thighs are like jewels,the work of a master hand. 2 Your navel is a rounded bowlthat never lacks mixed wine.Your belly is a heap of wheat,encircled with lilies. 3 Your two breasts are like two fawns,twins of a gazelle. 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower.Your eyes are pools in Heshbon,by the gate of Bath-rabbim.Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon,which looks toward Damascus. 5 Your head crowns you like Carmel,and your flowing locks are like purple;a king is held captive in the tresses. 6 How beautiful and pleasant you are,O loved one, with all your delights! 7 Your stature is like a palm tree,and your breasts are like its clusters. 8 I say I will climb the palm treeand lay hold of its fruit.Oh may your breasts be like clusters of the vine,and the scent of your breath like apples, 9 and your mouth like the best wine.It goes down smoothly for my beloved,gliding over lips and teeth. 10 I am my beloved’s,and his desire is for me.
