Song of Songs 1:5 I am black (O ye daughters of Hierusalem) like as the tentes of the Cedarenes, and as the hanginges of Salomon: Song of Songs 1:6 but yet am I fayre & welfauoured withal. Maruell not at me that I am so blacke: & why? þe sunne hath shyned vpon me. For when my mothers chyldren had euel will at me, they made me the keper of þe vyneyarde.

and shewing his love to her,

Song of Songs 1:9 There will I tary for the (my loue) with myne host and mith my charettes which shalbe no fewer then Pharaos. Song of Songs 1:10 Then shall thy chekes & thy neck be made fayre, & hanged with spanges & goodly iewels:

Song of Songs 1:12 When the king sitteth at the table, he shal smell my Nardus: Song of Songs 1:13 for a bondel of Myrre (O my beloued) lyeth betwixte my breastes.

Our bed is decketh wt floures, Song of Songs 1:17 the sylinges of our house are of Cedre tree, and our balkes of Cypresse.
