1:16א׳:ט״ז
1 א

הִנְּךָ יָפֶה דוֹדִי אַף נָעִים. לֹא הַיֹּפִי שֶׁלִּי אֶלָּא שֶׁלְּךָ. אַתָּה הוּא הַיָּפֶה:

You are handsome, my beloved, most handsome. The beauty is not mine, but Yours; You are the handsome one.

2 ב

אַף נָעִים. שֶׁעָבַרְתָּ עַל פְּשָׁעַי וְהִשְׁרֵיתָ שְׁכִינָתְךָ בְּתוֹכֵנוּ. וְזֶהוּ קִלּוּס שֶׁל יְרִידַת הָאֵשׁ "וַיַּרְא כָּל הָעָם וַיָּרֹנּוּ":

Most handsome. For You overlooked my transgressions and caused Your Shechinah to rest in our midst. This is the praise61By Yisroel to God. of the descent of the fire, “and all the people saw and shouted for joy.”62Vayikra 9:24.

אַף עַרְשֵׂנוּ רַעֲנָנָה. עַל יְדֵי נְעִימוֹתֶיךָ, הִנֵּה רַעֲנָנָה עַרְשֵׂנוּ בְּבָנֵינוּ וּבִבְנוֹתֵינוּ שֶׁהֵם כֻּלָּם נִקְבָּצִים אֵלֶיךָ פֹה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר "וַתִּקָּהֵל הָעֵדָה וגו'". הַמִּשְׁכָּן קָרוּי מִטָּה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר "הִנֵּה מִטָּתוֹ שֶׁלִּשְׁלֹמֹה". וְכֵן הַמִּקְדָּשׁ קָרוּי מִטָּה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בְּיוֹאָשׁ ""בַּחֲדַר הַמִּטּוֹת" אֲשֶׁר "בְּבֵית הָאֱלֹקִים", עַל שֶׁהֵם פִּרְיָן וְרִבְיָן שֶׁל יִשְׂרָאֵל:

Indeed our bed is fresh. Through your pleasantness, behold our couch is fresh with our sons and daughters, all of whom gather unto You here, as it is said, “and the assembly was gathered, etc.”63Vayikra 8:4. The Tabernacle is called a bed, as it is stated, “Behold the bed of Shlomo,”64Below 3:7. and similarly, the [Beis] Hamikdosh is called a bed, as it is said concerning Yo’ash, “in the bed chamber” which was in the “House of God,”65II Divrei Hayomim 22:11, 12. because they are the source of Yisroel’s fruitfulness and procreation.
