SONG OF SOLOMON 3
1: By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
2: I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
3: The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?
4: It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.
5: I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.
6: Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?
7: Behold his bed, which is Solomon's; threescore valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel.
8: They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night.
9: King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon.
10: He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem.
11: Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.


SONG OF SOLOMON 4
1: Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair is as a flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead.
2: Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.
3: Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within thy locks.
4: Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men.
5: Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.
6: Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.
7: Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
8: Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards.
9: Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
10: How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! how much better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine ointments than all spices!
11: Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
12: A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
13: Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard,
14: Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:
15: A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
16: Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.


PSALM 74
1: O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
2: Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
3: Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4: Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
5: A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
6: But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7: They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
8: They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
9: We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
10: O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
11: Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.
12: For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13: Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14: Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15: Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16: The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
17: Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
18: Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
19: O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
20: Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21: O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
22: Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
23: Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.


PSALM 75
1: Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
2: When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
3: The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
4: I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
5: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6: For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7: But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
8: For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
9: But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10: All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
