Song of Solomon 5:12-15

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 5

12 His eyes are like doves Beside streams of water, Bathed in milk, And perched in their setting. 13 His cheeks are like a bed of balsam, Banks of herbal spices; His lips are lilies Dripping with drops of myrrh. 14 His hands are rods of gold Set with topaz; His abdomen is panels of ivory Covered with sapphires. 15 His thighs are pillars of alabaster Set on pedestals of pure gold; His appearance is like Lebanon, Choice as the cedars.
King James Version

Chapter 5

12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set. 13 His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh. 14 His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires. 15 His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.
