15 How beautiful you are, my darling!
Oh, how beautiful!
Your eyes are doves.

15 “Look! You are beautiful, O girl companion of mine.+ Look! You are beautiful. Your eyes are [those of] doves.”+
16 “Look! You are beautiful,*+ my dear one, also pleasant. Our divan+ also is one of foliage. 17 The beams of our grand house* are cedars,+ our rafters juniper trees.

Song of Solomon chapter 2:1-4
1I am a roseb of Sharon,
a lily of the valleys.
and let his banner over me be love.
5 Strengthen me with raisins,
refresh me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
[Visual and audio:]
1 “A mere saffron*+ of the coastal plain*+ I am, a lily of the low plains.”+
2 “Like a lily among thorny weeds, so is my girl companion among the daughters.”+
3 “Like an apple tree+ among the trees of the forest, so is my dear one among the sons.+ His shade I have passionately desired, and there I have sat down, and his fruit has been sweet to my palate.
4 He brought me into the house of wine,+ and his banner+ over me was love.*+
Do YOU people refresh me with cakes of raisins,+ sustain me with apples; for I am lovesick.+
Isaiah chapter 37:21-24
[visual and audio]
And Isaiah the son of A’moz proceeded to send to Hez·e·ki’ah, saying: “This is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said, ‘Because you have prayed to me concerning Sen·nach’er·ib the king of As·syr’i·a,+
22 this is the word that Jehovah has spoken against him:
“The virgin daughter of Zion has despised you, she has held you in derision.+Behind you the daughter of Jerusalem has wagged [her] head.+
23 Whom have you taunted+ and spoken of abusively?+And against whom have you lifted up [your] voice+And do you raise your eyes on high?+It is against the Holy One of Israel!+
24 By means of your servants you have taunted Jehovah* and you say,+‘With the multitude of my war chariots I myself+—I shall certainly ascend the height of mountainous regions,+The remotest parts of Leb’a·non;+And I shall cut down its lofty cedars, its choice juniper trees.+ And I shall enter its final height,* the forest of its orchard.+
