Song of Solomon 1:13–15

Latin.png Latin text

Fasciculus myrrhae dilectus meus mihi,
inter ubera mea commorabitur.
Botrus cypri dilectus meus mihi,
in vineis Engaddi.
Ecce tu pulchra es, amica mea,
ecce tu pulchra es, oculi tui columbarum.

English.png English translation

A bundle of myrrh is my beloved to me,
he shall abide between my breasts.
A cluster of cypress my love is to me,
in the vineyards of Engaddi.
Behold thou art fair, O my love,
behold thou art fair, thine eyes are as those of doves.

German.png German translation

Ein Myrrhenbüschel ist mein Geliebter mir,
zwischen meinen Brüsten wird er weilen.
Eine Weinbeere Zyperns ist mein Geliebter mir
in den Weinbergen En-Gedis.
Siehe, du bist schön, meine Freundin,
siehe, du bist schön, deine Augen sind die von Tauben.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Az én szerelmesem mirrhabokréta nekem,
mely emlőim között mulat.
Ciprus fürtje nekem az én szerelmesem
Engaddi szőlőiből.
Ime te szép vagy, én szeretőm!
ime te szép vagy, a te szemeid galambszemek.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

[Zij:]
Wat knap ben je toch, mijn liefste en wat bekoorlijk.
Ons bed is het bloemenveld,
de balken van onze vertrekken zijn ceders,
de plafonds zijn cipressen.
Ik ben een weidebloem en een lelietje van dalen.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge & Hanneke Pot
