Song of Songs 7
A further description of the Church's graces.
Song of Songs 7:1 How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs [are] like jewels, the work of the hands of a skillful workman. Song of Songs 7:2 Thy navel [is like] a round goblet, [which] wanteth not liquor: thy belly [is like] a heap of wheat set about with lilies. Song of Songs 7:3 Thy two breasts [are] like two young roes [that are] twins. Song of Songs 7:4 Thy neck [is] as a tower of ivory; thy eyes [like] the fish-pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim: thy nose [is] as the tower of Lebanon which looketh towards Damascus. Song of Songs 7:5 Thy head upon thee [is] like Carmel, and the hair of thy head like purple; the king [is] held in the galleries. Song of Songs 7:6 How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights! Song of Songs 7:7 This thy stature is like to a palm tree, and thy breasts to clusters [of grapes]. Song of Songs 7:8 I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of its boughs: now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples; Song of Songs 7:9 And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth [down] sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
The Church professeth her faith and desire.
Song of Songs 7:10 I [am] my beloved's, and his desire [is] towards me. Song of Songs 7:11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages. Song of Songs 7:12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourisheth, [whether] the tender grape appeareth, [and] the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves. Song of Songs 7:13 The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates [are] all manner of pleasant [fruits], new and old, [which] I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.
