Take me away with you – let us hurry!
    Let the king bring me into his chambers.

Friends

We rejoice and delight in you;[a]
    we will praise your love more than wine.

How right they are to adore you!

Dark am I, yet lovely,
    daughters of Jerusalem,
dark like the tents of Kedar,
    like the tent curtains of Solomon.[b]
Do not stare at me because I am dark,
    because I am darkened by the sun.
My mother’s sons were angry with me
    and made me take care of the vineyards;
    my own vineyard I had to neglect.
