Shir Hashirim (Book of Song of songs), Chapter 7

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'2 How beautiful are thy steps in sandals, O prince's daughter! The roundings of thy thighs are like the links of a chain, the work of the hands of a skilled workman.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'3 Thy navel is like a round goblet, wherein no mingled wine is wanting; thy belly is like a heap of wheat set about with lilies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'4 Thy two breasts are like two fawns that are twins of a gazelle.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'5 Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes as the pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim; thy nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'6 Thy head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like purple; the king is held captive in the tresses thereof.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'7 How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'8 This thy stature is like to a palm-tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'9 I said: 'I will climb up into the palm-tree, I will take hold of the branches thereof; and let thy breasts be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy countenance like apples;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'10 And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine, that glideth down smoothly for my beloved, moving gently the lips of those that are asleep.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'11 I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'12 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'13 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see whether the vine hath budded, whether the vine-blossom be opened, and the pomegranates be in flower; there will I give thee my love.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'14 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and at our doors are all manner of precious fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
