Take me with[a] you! Let’s run away!
    Let the king bring me into his private chambers.

The Young Women

The daughters[b] of Jerusalem[c] will rejoice and be happy for you.
    We will value your love more than wine.
        They love you appropriately.

The Loved One

The daughters[d] of Jerusalem, I’m dark and lovely
    like the tents of Kedar,
        like the curtains of Solomon.
Don’t stare at me because I’m dark;
    the sun has tanned me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me.
    They made me the caretaker of the vineyards,
        but I didn’t take care of my own vineyard.
