BBE(i) 9 What is your loved one more than another, O fairest among women? What is your loved one more than another, that you say this to us? 10 My loved one is white and red, the chief among ten thousand. 11 His head is as the most delicate gold; his hair is thick, and black as a raven. 12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the water streams, washed with milk, and rightly placed. 13 His face is as beds of spices, giving out perfumes of every sort; his lips like lilies, dropping liquid myrrh. 14 His hands are as rings of gold ornamented with beryl-stones; his body is as a smooth plate of ivory covered with sapphires. 15 His legs are as pillars of stone on a base of delicate gold; his looks are as Lebanon, beautiful as the cedar-tree. 16 His mouth is most sweet; yes, he is all beautiful. This is my loved one, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
