Douay-Rheims Bible

Song of Songs 2

The mutual love of Christ and his Church.

Song of Songs 2:1 I am the flower of the field, and the lily of the valleys. Song of Songs 2:2 As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. Song of Songs 2:3 As the apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow, whom I desired: and his fruit was sweet to my palate. Song of Songs 2:4 He brought me into the cellar of wine, he set in order charity in me. Song of Songs 2:5 Stay me up with flowers, compass me about with apples: because I languish with love. Song of Songs 2:6 His left hand is under my head, and his right hand shall embrace me. Song of Songs 2:7 I adjure you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and the harts of the field, that you stir not up, nor make the beloved to awake, till she please.

The hope,

Song of Songs 2:8 The voice of my beloved, behold he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping over the hills. Song of Songs 2:9 My beloved is like a roe, or a young hart. Behold he standeth behind our wall, looking through the windows, looking through the lattices.

and calling of the Church.

Song of Songs 2:10 Behold my beloved speaketh to me: Arise, make haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come. Song of Songs 2:11 For winter is now past, the rain is over and gone. Song of Songs 2:12 The flowers have appeared in our land, the time of pruning is come: the voice of the turtle is heard in our land: Song of Songs 2:13 The fig tree hath put forth her green figs: the vines in flower yield their sweet smell. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come:

Christ's care of the Church.

Song of Songs 2:14 My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hollow places of the wall, shew me thy face, let thy voice sound in my ears: for thy voice is sweet, and thy face comely. Song of Songs 2:15 Catch us the little foxes that destroy the vines: for our vineyard hath flourished.

The profession of the Church, her faith and hope.

Song of Songs 2:16 My beloved to me, and I to him who feedeth among the lilies, Song of Songs 2:17 Till the day break, and the shadows retire. Return: be like, my beloved, to a roe, or to a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
