of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the
keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.

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

O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the
flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds' tents.

of gold.

the smell thereof.

night betwixt my breasts.

of Engedi.

doves' eyes.

green.
