15  Fahet uns die Füchse,
die kleinen Füchse, die die Weinberge verderben;
denn unsere Weinberge haben Augen gewonnen.
16  Mein Freund ist mein, und ich bin sein,
der unter den Rosen weidet,
17  bis der Tag kühle werde und der Schatten weiche.
Kehre um, werde wie ein Reh, mein Freund,
oder wie ein junger Hirsch auf den Scheidebergen!

Hohelied Salomo, ch. 2, vv. 15-17
English.png English translation

15 Take us the foxes,
the little foxes, that spoil the vines:
for our vines have tender grapes.
16 My beloved is mine, and I am his:
he feedeth among the lilies.
17 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away,
turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe
or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.

Song of Solomon 2:16-18 (King James Version, 1611)
