He says to her:
“My Dove in the clefts, of the rock,
in the hiding places on the mountainside,
show me your face, let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes
that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards
that are in bloom.”
“My beloved is mine and I am his;
he browses among the lilies.
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle
or a young stag on the rugged hills.”
from the Song of Songs 2:14-17
