ᾆσμα ᾀσμάτων ὅ ἐστιν τῷ Σαλωμων 1 φιλησάτω με ἀπὸ φιλημάτων στόματος αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἀγαθοὶ μαστοί σου ὑπὲρ οἶνον 2 καὶ ὀσμὴ μύρων σου ὑπὲρ πάντα τὰ ἀρώματα μύρον ἐκκενωθὲν ὄνομά σου διὰ τοῦτο νεάνιδες ἠγάπησάν σε 3 εἵλκυσάν σε ὀπίσω σου εἰς ὀσμὴν μύρων σου δραμοῦμεν εἰσήνεγκέν με ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς τὸ ταμίειον αὐτοῦ ἀγαλλιασώμεθα καὶ εὐφρανθῶμεν ἐν σοί ἀγαπήσομεν μαστούς σου ὑπὲρ οἶνον εὐθύτης ἠγάπησέν σε 1 A kiss from those lips![1] Wine cannot ravish the senses like that embrace, 2 nor the fragrance of rare perfumes match it for delight. Thy very name spoken soothes the heart like flow of oil; what wonder the maids should love thee? 3 Draw me after thee where thou wilt; see, we hasten after thee, by the very fragrance of those perfumes allured! To his own bower the king has brought me; he is our pride and boast, on his embrace, more ravishing than wine, our thoughts shall linger. They love truly that know thy love. !--LATIN=26son001001a--> 1

Sponsa. Osculetur me osculo oris sui;
quia meliora sunt ubera tua vino,
2
fragrantia unguentis optimis.
Oleum effusum nomen tuum;
ideo adolescentulæ dilexerunt te.
3
Chorus Adolescentularum. Trahe me, post te curremus
in odorem unguentorum tuorum.
Introduxit me rex in cellaria sua;
exsultabimus et lætabimur in te,
memores uberum tuorum super vinum.
Recti diligunt te.
4 μέλαινά εἰμι καὶ καλή θυγατέρες Ιερουσαλημ ὡς σκηνώματα Κηδαρ ὡς δέρρεις Σαλωμων 5 μὴ βλέψητέ με ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι μεμελανωμένη ὅτι παρέβλεψέν με ὁ ἥλιος υἱοὶ μητρός μου ἐμαχέσαντο ἐν ἐμοί ἔθεντό με φυλάκισσαν ἐν ἀμπελῶσιν ἀμπελῶνα ἐμὸν οὐκ ἐφύλαξα 6 ἀπάγγειλόν μοι ὃν ἠγάπησεν ἡ ψυχή μου ποῦ ποιμαίνεις ποῦ κοιτάζεις ἐν μεσημβρίᾳ μήποτε γένωμαι ὡς περιβαλλομένη ἐ{P'} ἀγέλαις ἑταίρων σου 4 Dark of skin, and yet I have beauty, daughters of Jerusalem.[2] Black are the tents they have in Cedar; black are Solomon’s own curtains; then why not I? 5 Take no note of this Ethiop colour; it was the sun tanned me, when my own brothers, that had a grudge against me, set me a-watching in the vineyards. I have a vineyard of my own that I have watched but ill. 6 Tell me, my true love, where is now thy pasture-ground, where now is thy resting-place under the noon’s heat? Thou wouldst not have me wander to and fro where the flocks graze that are none of thine? 4
Sponsa. Nigra sum, sed formosa, filiæ Jerusalem,
sicut tabernacula Cedar, sicut pelles Salomonis.
5
Nolite me considerare quod fusca sim,
quia decoloravit me sol.
Filii matris meæ pugnaverunt contra me;
posuerunt me custodem in vineis:
vineam meam non custodivi.
6
Indica mihi, quem diligit anima mea, ubi pascas,
ubi cubes in meridie,
ne vagari incipiam post greges sodalium tuorum.
7 ἐὰν μὴ γνῷς σεαυτήν ἡ καλὴ ἐν γυναιξίν ἔξελθε σὺ ἐν πτέρναις τῶν ποιμνίων καὶ ποίμαινε τὰς ἐρίφους σου ἐπὶ σκηνώμασιν τῶν ποιμένων 8 τῇ ἵππῳ μου ἐν ἅρμασιν Φαραω ὡμοίωσά σε ἡ πλησίον μου 9 τί ὡραιώθησαν σιαγόνες σου ὡς τρυγόνες τράχηλός σου ὡς ὁρμίσκοι 10 ὁμοιώματα χρυσίου ποιήσομέν σοι μετὰ στιγμάτων τοῦ ἀργυρίου 7 Still bewildered, fairest of womankind?[3] Nay, if thou wilt, wander abroad, and follow with the shepherds’ flocks; feed, if thou wilt, those goats of thine beside the shepherds’ encampment. 8 My heart’s love, prized above all my horsemen, with Pharao’s wealth of chariots behind them! 9 Soft as doves are thy cheeks, thy neck smooth as coral. 10 Chains of gold that neck must have, inlaid with silver. 7
Sponsus. Si ignoras te, o pulcherrima inter mulieres,
egredere, et abi post vestigia gregum,
et pasce hædos tuos juxta tabernacula pastorum.
8
Equitatui meo in curribus Pharaonis
assimilavi te, amica mea.
9
Pulchræ sunt genæ tuæ sicut turturis;
collum tuum sicut monilia.
10
Murenulas aureas faciemus tibi,
vermiculatas argento.
11 ἕως οὗ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν ἀνακλίσει αὐτοῦ νάρδος μου ἔδωκεν ὀσμὴν αὐτοῦ 12 ἀπόδεσμος τῆς στακτῆς ἀδελφιδός μου ἐμοί ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν μαστῶν μου αὐλισθήσεται 13 βότρυς τῆς κύπρου ἀδελφιδός μου ἐμοὶ ἐν ἀμπελῶσιν Εγγαδδι 11 Now, while the king sits at his wine, breathes out the spikenard of my thoughts![4] 12 Close my love is to my heart as the cluster of myrrh that lodges in my bosom all the night through. 13 Close he clings as a tuft of cypress in the vine-clad rocks of Engedi. 11
Sponsa. Dum esset rex in accubitu suo,
nardus mea dedit odorem suum.
12
Fasciculus myrrhæ dilectus meus mihi;
inter ubera mea commorabitur.
13
Botrus cypri dilectus meus mihi
in vineis Engaddi.
14 ἰδοὺ εἶ καλή ἡ πλησίον μου ἰδοὺ εἶ καλή ὀφθαλμοί σου περιστεραί 14 See how fair is the maid I love! Soft eyes thou hast, like a dove’s eyes. 14
Sponsus. Ecce tu pulchra es, amica mea! ecce tu pulchra es!
Oculi tui columbarum.
15 ἰδοὺ εἶ καλός ὁ ἀδελφιδός μου καί γε ὡραῖος πρὸς κλίνη ἡμῶν σύσκιος 16 δοκοὶ οἴκων ἡμῶν κέδροι φατνώματα ἡμῶν κυπάρισσοι 15 And see how fair is the man I love, how stately! Green grows that bower, thine and mine, 16 with its roof of cedars, with a covert of cypress for its walls. 15
Sponsa. Ecce tu pulcher es, dilecte mi, et decorus!
Lectulus noster floridus.
16
Tigna domorum nostrarum cedrina,
laquearia nostra cypressina.
