The final garden meeting (Song 8:13-8:14)

Female lover

“O you!

Who dwell in the gardens!

My companions are listening

For your voice.

Let me hear it!

Make haste!

My beloved!

Be like a gazelle!

Be like a young stag

Upon the mountains of spices!”

This female lover wanted to hear her lover’s voice. Her companions were listening for his voice with her, as she wanted to hear it. She wanted her lover to make haste. She wanted him to be like a young gazelle or stag in a mountain of spices.   So ends this great romantic love story.
