The Words of King Solomon in the old Testament

The Song of Solomon 4:11

Your lips, my bride, drip like the honeycomb.
Honey and milk are under your tongue.
The smell of your garments is like the smell of Lebanon.

The Song of Solomon 5:1

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.

Proverb 24:13

My son, eat honey, for it is good;
The droppings of the honeycomb, which are sweet to your taste:
So you shall know wisdom to be to your soul; when you have found it,
Then there will be a reward, your hope will not be cut off.


by Piero della Francesco, 1457-1465
