New Living Translation
3[Young Woman] One night as I lay in bed, I yearned for my lover. I yearned for him, but he did not come.H3915H4904H1245H5315H157H1245H4672 2So I said to myself, “I will get up and roam the city, searching in all its streets and squares. I will search for the one I love.” So I searched everywhere but did not find him.H6965H5437H5892H7784H7339H1245H5315H157H1245H4672 3The watchmen stopped me as they made their rounds, and I asked, “Have you seen the one I love?”H8104H5437H5892H4672H7200H5315H157 4Then scarcely had I left them when I found my love! I caught and held him tightly, then I brought him to my mother’s house, into my mother’s bed, where I had been conceived.H4592H5674H4672H5315H157H270H7503H935H517H1004H2315H2029 5Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and wild deer, not to awaken love until the time is right.H7650H1323H3389H6643H176H355H7704H5782H5782H160H2654 6[Young Women of Jerusalem] Who is this sweeping in from the wilderness like a cloud of smoke? Who is it, fragrant with myrrh and frankincense and every kind of spice?H5927H4057H8490H6227H6999H4753H3828H81H7402 7Look, it is Solomon’s carriage, surrounded by sixty heroic men, the best of Israel’s soldiers.H4296H8010H8346H1368H5439H1368H3478 8They are all skilled swordsmen, experienced warriors. Each wears a sword on his thigh, ready to defend the king against an attack in the night.H270H2719H3925H4421H376H2719H3409H6343H3915 9King Solomon’s carriage is built of wood imported from Lebanon.H4428H8010H6213H668H6086H3844 10Its posts are silver, its canopy gold; its cushions are purple. It was decorated with love by the young women of Jerusalem.H6213H5982H3701H7507H2091H4817H713H8432H7528H160H1323H3389 11[Young Woman] Come out to see King Solomon, young women of Jerusalem. He wears the crown his mother gave him on his wedding day, his most joyous day.H3318H1323H6726H7200H4428H8010H5850H517H5849H3117H2861H3117H8057H3820
