Let the king bring me into his chambers.

Best Wishes to the Man

The Friends

We rejoice and are happy because of you.
We celebrate your expressions of love
more than we celebrate wine.
How right the virgins[a] are to love you!

My Own Vineyard

The Woman

Dark am I, but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem,
dark like the tents of Kedar,
like the tent curtains of Solomon.
Do not stare at me because I am dark
    because the sun gazed at me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me.
They made me take care of the vineyards.
I could not take care of my own vineyard.
