The Bride Gives Her Love

Song of Solomon 7

11 m Come, my beloved,
let us go out into the fields
and lodge in the villages; 1
12 let us go out early to the vineyards
n and see whether the vines have budded,
whether o the grape blossoms have opened
and the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.
13 p The mandrakes give forth fragrance,
and beside our doors are all choice fruits,
q new as well as old,
which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
