6  Quam pulchra es et quam decora, carissima, in deliciis!
7  Statura tua assimilata est palmae, et ubera tua botris.
5a  Caput tuum ut Carmelus;
4a  collum tuum sicut turris eburnea.
11a  Veni, dilecte mi, egrediamur in agrum;
12b  videamus si flores fructus parturierunt, si floruerunt mala punica;
ibi dabo tibi ubera mea.

6  How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!
7  This thy stature is like to a palm tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.
5a  Thine head upon thee is like Carmel;
4a  Thy neck is as a tower of ivory;
11a  Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field;
12b  let us see if… the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth:
there will I give thee my loves.
