Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Si ignoras te, o pulchra inter mulieres,
egredere et abi post vestigia gregum tuorum
et pasce haedos tuos iuxta tabernacula pastorum.
Equitatui meo in curribus Pharaonis adsimilavi te amica mea.

English.png English translation

If you do not know, O fairest among women,
follow the tracks of the flock,
and pasture your kids beside the shepherds' tents.
I compare you, my love, to my company of horsemen among Pharoah's chariots.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Als je dat niet weet, o mooiste onder de vrouwen,
trek er dan op uit en volg de sporen van je kudden
en weid je geitjes bij de hutten van de herders.
Met de paardenspan voor de wagens van de Farao vergelijk ik je, mijn vriendin.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge & Hanneke Pot
