Song of Solomon 2:8–10a

Latin.png Latin text

Vox dilecti mei: ecce iste venit saliens in montibus, transiliens colles.
Similis est dilectus meus capreae, hinuloque cervorum.
En ipse stat post parietem nostrum respiciens per fenestras, prospiciens per cancellos.
En dilectus meus loquitur mihi.

English.png English translation

The voice of my beloved! Look, he comes, leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the hills.
My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Look, there he stands behind our wall, gazing in at the windows, looking through the lattice.
My beloved speaks to me.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

De stem van mijn liefste!
Kijk, daar komt hij,
springend over de bergen,
huppelend over de heuvels.
Als een ree is mijn liefste,
als een hertenkalf.
Zie, daar staat hij achter onze muur,
kijkend door de vensters,
turend door de spijlen.
Zie, mijn liefste zal tot mij zeggen:
