Song of Solomon 1:7

Tell

me, you whom my soul loves, where you graze your flock, where you rest them at noon; For why should I be as one who is veiled beside the flocks of your companions?
Song of Solomon 1:7

Context

Song of Solomon 1 [5.] I am dark, but lovely,
you daughters of Jerusalem,
like Kedar’s tents,
like Solomon’s curtains.
Don’t stare at me because I am dark,
because the sun has scorched me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me.
They made me keeper of the vineyards.
I haven’t kept my own vineyard.
Tell me, you whom my soul loves,
where you graze your flock,
where you rest them at noon;
For why should I be as one who is veiled
beside the flocks of your companions?


Lover

Song of Solomon 1 [8.] If you don’t know, most beautiful among women,
follow the tracks of the sheep.
Graze your young goats beside the shepherds’ tents.
I have compared you, my love,
to a steed in Pharaoh’s chariots.
Your cheeks are beautiful with earrings,
your neck with strings of jewels.
We will make you earrings of gold,
with studs of silver.
