SONG 1:5 I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

SONG 1:7 Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?

SONG 1:15 Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes.
SONG 1:16 Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yes, pleasant: also our bed is green.
SONG 1:17 The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.
