Mein Freund komme in seinen Garten und esse von seinen edlen Früchten.
Ich komme, meine Schwester, liebe Braut, in meinen Garten. Ich habe meine Myrrhen
samt meinen Würzen abgebrochen; ich habe meines Seims samt meinem Honig gegessen;
ich habe meines Weins samt meiner Milch getrunken.
Esset, meine Lieben, und trinket, meine Freunde, und werdet trunken!

Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.
I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh
with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey;
I have drunk my wine with my milk:
eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
