Third Week after Epiphany

Daily Bible Reading
  • Song of Solomon 4:1-8 January 22, 2019

    1How beautiful you are, my love,
    how very beautiful!
    Your eyes are doves
    behind your veil.
    Your hair is like a flock of goats,
    moving down the slopes of Gilead.
    2Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes
    that have come up from the washing,
    all of which bear twins,
    and not one among them is bereaved.
    3Your lips are like a crimson thread,
    and your mouth is lovely.
    Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
    behind your veil.
    4Your neck is like the tower of David,
    built in courses;
    on it hang a thousand bucklers,
    all of them shields of warriors.
    5Your two breasts are like two fawns,
    twins of a gazelle,
    that feed among the lilies.
    6Until the day breathes
    and the shadows flee,
    I will hasten to the mountain of myrrh
    and the hill of frankincense.
    7You are altogether beautiful, my love;
    there is no flaw in you.
    8Come with me from Lebanon, my bride;
    come with me from Lebanon.
    Depart from the peak of Amana,
    from the peak of Senir and Hermon,
    from the dens of lions,
    from the mountains of leopards.
