Original text and translations

Song of Solomon 2:4–5

Latin.png Latin text

Introduxit me rex in cellam vinariam, ordinavit in me charitatem.
Fulcite me floribus, stipate me malis; quia amore langueo.

English.png English translation

He brought me into the cellar of wine, he set in order charity in me.
Stay me up with flowers, compass me about with apples: because I languish with love.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Bevitt engem a király a boros pinczébe, elrendezte bennem a szeretetet.
Támogassatok engem virágokkal, erősítsetek engem almákkal; mert lankadok a szerelem miatt.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

De koning heeft mij binnengeleid in zijn wijnkamer,
hij heeft bij mij liefde opgewekt.
O, versterk mij met honing,
verzadig mij met appels,
want ik kwijn weg van liefde.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge & Hanneke Pot
