Shir Hashirim (Book of Song of songs), Chapter 6

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 'Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? Whither hath thy beloved turned him, that we may seek him with thee?'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 'My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine, that feedeth among the lilies.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me. Thy hair is as a flock of goats, that trail down from Gilead.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Thy teeth are like a flock of ewes, which are come up from the washing; whereof all are paired, and none faileth among them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Thy temples are like a pomegranate split open behind thy veil.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and maidens without number.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 My dove, my undefiled, is but one; she is the only one of her mother; she is the choice one of her that bore her. The daughters saw her, and called her happy; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Who is she that looketh forth as the dawn, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, terrible as an army with banners?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 I went down into the garden of nuts, to look at the green plants of the valley, to see whether the vine budded, and the pomegranates were in flower.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Before I was aware, my soul set me upon the chariots of my princely people.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'1 Return, return, O Shulammite; Return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulammite? As it were a dance of two companies.
