Song of Solomon 7:6, 7, 5a, 4a, 11a, 12 [Latin]

How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!

This thy stature is like to a palm tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.

Thine head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thine head like purple; the king is held in the galleries.

Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes like the fishpools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim: thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.

11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

12  Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.
