Song of Songs 6
The Church professeth her faith in Christ.
Song of Songs 6:1 O the fairest among women, whither is thy welbeloued gone? whither is thy welbeloued turned aside, that we may seeke him with thee? Song of Songs 6:2 My welbeloued is gone downe into his garden to the beds of spices, to feede in the gardens, and to gather lilies. Song of Songs 6:3 I am my welbeloueds, and my welbeloued is mine, who feedeth among the lilies.
Christ sheweth the graces of the Church,
Song of Songs 6:4 Thou art beautifull, my loue, as Tirzah, comely as Ierusale, terrible as an army with baners. Song of Songs 6:5 Turne away thine eyes from me: for they ouercome mee: thine heare is like a flocke of goates, which looke downe from Gilead. Song of Songs 6:6 Thy teeth are like a flocke of sheepe, which goe vp from the washing, which euery one bring out twinnes, and none is barren among them. Song of Songs 6:7 Thy temples are within thy lockes as a piece of a pomegranate. Song of Songs 6:8 There are threescore Queenes and fourescore concubines & of the damsels without nober. Song of Songs 6:9 But my doue is alone, and my vndefiled, she is the onely daughter of her mother, and shee is deare to her that bare her: the daughters haue seene her & counted her blessed: euen the Queenes and the concubines, and they haue praised her.
and his love towards her.
Song of Songs 6:10 Who is shee that looketh foorth as the morning, fayre as the moone, pure as the sunne, terrible as an armie with banners! Song of Songs 6:11 I went downe to the garden of nuttes, to see the fruites of the valley, to see if the vine budded, and if the pomegranates flourished. Song of Songs 6:12 I knewe nothing, my soule set me as the charets of my noble people. Song of Songs 6:13 Returne, returne, O Shulamite, returne: returne that we may behold thee. What shal you see in the Shulamite, but as the company of an armie?
