Young's Literal Translation

Song of Songs 2

The mutual love of Christ and his Church.

Song of Songs 2:1 As a lily among the thorns, Song of Songs 2:2 So [is] my friend among the daughters! Song of Songs 2:3 As a citron among trees of the forest, So [is] my beloved among the sons, In his shade I delighted, and sat down, And his fruit [is] sweet to my palate. Song of Songs 2:4 He hath brought me in unto a house of wine, And his banner over me [is] love, Song of Songs 2:5 Sustain me with grape-cakes, Support me with citrons, for I [am] sick with love. Song of Songs 2:6 His left hand [is] under my head, And his right doth embrace me. Song of Songs 2:7 I have adjured you, daughters of Jerusalem, By the roes or by the hinds of the field, Stir not up nor wake the love till she please!

The hope,

Song of Songs 2:8 The voice of my beloved! lo, this—he is coming, Leaping on the mountains, skipping on the hills. Song of Songs 2:9 My beloved [is] like to a roe, Or to a young one of the harts. Lo, this—he is standing behind our wall, Looking from the windows, Blooming from the lattice.

and calling of the Church.

Song of Songs 2:10 My beloved hath answered and said to me, 'Rise up, my friend, my fair one, and come away, Song of Songs 2:11 For lo, the winter hath passed by, The rain hath passed away—it hath gone. Song of Songs 2:12 The flowers have appeared in the earth, The time of the singing hath come, And the voice of the turtle was heard in our land, Song of Songs 2:13 The fig-tree hath ripened her green figs, And the sweet-smelling vines have given forth fragrance, Rise, come, my friend, my fair one, yea, come away.

Christ's care of the Church.

Song of Songs 2:14 My dove, in clefts of the rock, In a secret place of the ascent, Cause me to see thine appearance, Cause me to hear thy voice, For thy voice [is] sweet, and thy appearance comely. Song of Songs 2:15 Seize ye for us foxes, Little foxes—destroyers of vineyards, Even our sweet-smelling vineyards.

The profession of the Church, her faith and hope.

Song of Songs 2:16 My beloved [is] mine, and I [am] his, Who is delighting among the lilies, Song of Songs 2:17 Till the day doth break forth, And the shadows have fled away, Turn, be like, my beloved, To a roe, or to a young one of the harts, On the mountains of separation!
