The Song of Solomon Illustrated
Chapters 4 and 7
How beautiful you are, my darling. How beautiful
Your eyes are like doves behind your veil;
Your hair is like a flock of goats;
Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes;
Your lips are like scarlet thread;
Your temples are like a slice of pomegranate;
Your neck is like the Tower of David…built with
rows of stones on which are hung a thousand
shields. . .
Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a
gazelle which feeds among the lilies;
Your lips, my bride, drip honey and mild under
And the fragrance of your garments is like the
fragrance of Lebanon . . .
Your navel is a round goblet …
Your belly is like a heap of wheat …
Your nose is like the Tower of Lebanon
faces toward Damascus . . .
