Translation

24         The verdure is green,

25         The vegetation is green.

26–27   In the shade of the green irrigated orchard,

27–28   a speckled she-goat keeps pasturing.

29–30   I threw at her a weapon - did not catch her.

30–31   I threw at her a shepherd staff - did not get hold of her.

31–32   I threw at her beer bread, thyme, and salt -

32–33   I verily did turn her over from her root.
