I read Song of Songs 7:

This verse makes me chuckle, because I think about how standards of beauty and health change with time and culture, and how much trouble I might get into if I said something like this to my wife without some biblical context.

“Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies.”
-Song of Songs 7:2 (NIV)
