(Geneva 1587) .  

22-1:1      An excellent song which was Salomons.  

22-1:2      Let him kisse me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy loue is better then wine.  

22-1:3      Because of the sauour of thy good ointments thy name is as an ointment powred out: therefore the virgins loue thee.  

22-1:4      Drawe me: we will runne after thee: the King hath brought me into his chabers: we will reioyce and be glad in thee: we will remember thy loue more then wine: the righteous do loue thee.  

22-1:5      I am blacke, O daughters of Ierusalem, but comely, as the tentes of Kedar, and as the curtaines of Salomon.  

22-1:6      Regard ye me not because I am blacke: for the sunne hath looked vpon mee. The sonnes of my mother were angry against mee: they made me the keeper of ye vines: but I kept not mine owne vine.  

22-1:7      Shewe me, O thou, whome my soule loueth, where thou feedest, where thou liest at noone: for why should I be as she that turneth aside to the flockes of thy companions?  

22-1:8      If thou knowe not, O thou the fairest among women, get thee foorth by the steps of the flocke, and feede thy kiddes by the tents of the shepheards.  

22-1:9      I haue compared thee, O my loue, to the troupe of horses in the charets of Pharaoh.  

22-1:10     Thy cheekes are comely with rowes of stones, and thy necke with chaines.  

22-1:11     We will make thee borders of golde with studdes of siluer.  

22-1:12     Whiles the King was at his repast, my spikenard gaue the smell thereof.  

22-1:13     My welbeloued is as a bundle of myrrhe vnto me: he shall lie betweene my breasts.  

22-1:14     My welbeloued is as a cluster of camphire vnto me in the vines of Engedi.  

22-1:15     My loue, beholde, thou art faire: beholde, thou art faire: thine eyes are like the doues.  

22-1:16     My welbeloued, beholde, thou art faire and pleasant: also our bed is greene:  

22-1:17     The beames of our house are cedars, our rafters are of firre.

22-2:9      My welbeloued is like a roe, or a yong hart: loe, he standeth behinde our wall, looking forth of the windowes, shewing him selfe through the grates.  

22-2:10     My welbeloued spake and said vnto me, Arise, my loue, my faire one, and come thy way.  

22-2:11     For beholde, winter is past: the raine is changed, and is gone away.  

22-2:12     The flowers appeare in the earth: the time of the singing of birdes is come, and the voyce of the turtle is heard in our land.  

22-2:13     The figtree hath brought foorth her yong figges: and the vines with their small grapes haue cast a sauour: arise my loue, my faire one, and come away.  

22-2:14     My doue, that art in the holes of ye rocke, in the secret places of the staires, shewe mee thy sight, let mee heare thy voyce: for thy voyce is sweete, and thy sight comely.  

22-2:15     Take vs the foxes, the little foxes, which destroy the vines: for our vines haue small grapes.  

22-2:16     My welbeloued is mine, and I am his: hee feedeth among the lilies,  

22-2:17     Vntil the day breake, and the shadowes flee away: returne, my welbeloued, and be like a roe, or a yong hart vpon the mountaines of Bether.

22-8:14     O my welbeloued, flee away, and be like vnto the roe, or to the yong harte vpon ye mountaines of spices.
