1 Return, return, O Sunamite; return, return, and we will look at thee. What will ye see in the Sunamite? She comes as bands of armies. 2 Thy steps are beautiful in shoes, O daughter of the prince: the joints of [thy] thighs are like chains, the work of the craftsman. 3 Thy navel is [as] a turned bowl, not wanting liquor; thy belly is [as] a heap of wheat set about with lilies. 4 Thy two breasts are as two twin fawns. 5 Thy neck is as an ivory tower; thine eyes are as pools in Esebon, by the gates of the daughter of many: thy nose is as the tower of Libanus, looking toward Damascus. 6 Thy head upon thee is as Carmel, and the curls of thy hair like scarlet; the king is bound in the galleries. 7 How beautiful art thou, and how sweet art thou, [my] love! 8 This is thy greatness in thy delights: thou wast made like a palm tree, and thy breasts to cluster. 9 I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of its high boughs: and now shall thy breasts be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose of apples; 10 and thy throat as good wine, going well with my kinsman, suiting my lips and teeth. 11 I am my kinsman’s, and his desire is toward me. 12 Come, my kinsman, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages. 13 Let us go early into the vineyards; let us see if the vine has flowered, [if] the blossoms have appeared, if the pomegranates have blossomed; there will I give thee my breasts. 14 The mandrakes have given a smell, and at our doors [are] all kinds of choice fruits, new and old. O my kinsman, I have kept [them] for thee. ΕΠΙΣΤΡΕΦΕ, ἐπίστρεφε, ἡ Σουλαμῖτις· ἐπίστρεφε, ἐπίστρεφε, καὶ ὀψόμεθα ἐν σοί, τί ὄψεσθε ἐν τῇ Σουλαμίτιδι; ἡ ἐρχομένη ὡς χοροὶ τῶν παρεμβολῶν. 2 ὡραιώθησαν διαβήματά σου ἐν ὑποδήμασί σου, θύγατερ Ναδάβ· ῥυθμοὶ μηρῶν ὅμοιοι ὁρμίσκοις, ἔργον τεχνίτου· 3 ὀμφαλός σου κρατὴρ τορευτὸς μὴ ὑστερούμενος κράμα· κοιλία σου θημωνία σίτου πεφραγμένη ἐν κρίνοις· 4 δύο μαστοί σου, ὡς δύο νεβροὶ δίδυμοι δορκάδος· 5 ὁ τράχηλός σου ὡς πύργος ἐλεφάντινος· οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὡς λίμναι ἐν ᾿Εσεβών, ἐν πύλαις θυγατρὸς πολλῶν· μυκτήρ σου ὡς πύργος τοῦ Λιβάνου σκοπεύων πρόσωπον Δαμασκοῦ· 6 κεφαλή σου ἐπὶ σὲ ὡς Κάρμηλος, καὶ πλόκιον κεφαλῆς σου ὡς πορφύρα, βασιλεὺς δεδεμένος ἐν παραδρομαῖς. 7 τί ὡραιώθης καὶ τὶ ἡδύνθης ἀγάπη, ἐν τρυφαῖς σου; 8 τοῦτο μέγεθός σου, ὡμοιώθης τῷ φοίνικι καὶ οἱ μαστοί σου τοῖς βότρυσιν. 9 εἶπα· ἀναβήσομαι ἐπὶ τῷ φοίνικι, κρατήσω τῶν ὕψεων αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔσονται δὴ μαστοί σου ὡς βότρυες τῆς ἀμπέλου καὶ ὀσμὴ ρινός σου ὡς μῆλα 10 καὶ ὁ λάρυγξ σου ὡς οἶνος ὁ ἀγαθός, πορευόμενος τῷ ἀδελφιδῷ μου εἰς εὐθύτητα, ἱκανούμενος χείλεσί μου καὶ ὀδοῦσιν. 11 ᾿Εγὼ τῷ ἀδελφιδῷ μου, καὶ ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἡ ἐπιστροφὴ αὐτοῦ. 12 ἐλθέ, ἀδελφιδέ μου, ἐξέλθωμεν εἰς ἀγρόν, αὐλισθῶμεν ἐν κώμαις· 13 ὀρθρίσωμεν εἰς ἀμπελῶνας, ἴδωμεν εἰ ἤνθησεν ἡ ἄμπελος, ἤνθησεν ὁ κυπρισμός, ἤνθησαν αἱ ροαί· ἐκεῖ δώσω τοὺς μαστούς μου σοί. 14 οἱ μανδραγόραι ἔδωκαν ὀσμήν, καὶ ἐπὶ θύραις ἡμῶν πάντα ἀκρόδρυα, νέα πρὸς παλαιά, ἀδελφιδέ μου, ἐτήρησά σοι.
