As a lily among the bramble,
so is my darling among the young women. Bible

“a lily among the bramble” The lover magnifies the good thoughts the beloved has about herself. She calls herself a lily, he calls her a lily among the thorny bramble.

“darling.” See commentary on Song 1:9.

“young women.” The Hebrew is “daughters,” but that translation would give the English reader the wrong impression here; the point is that they were young, unmarried women.
