Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down in his shade with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. § For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the Lord?
My beloved is white and ruddy, chief among ten thousand. § One pearl of great price. § The ruler over the kings of the earth. § His head is like the finest gold; his locks are wavy, and black as a raven. § Head over all things. § He is the head of the body, the church. § His cheeks are like a bed of spices, banks of scented herbs. § He could not be hidden. § His lips are lilies, dripping liquid myrrh. § No man ever spoke like this Man!
His countenance is like Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. § Make Your face shine upon Your servant. § Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
