Further to this, A.B. Jackson writes:

For 'Acts' I took two texts, picked extracts from each, and spliced them together.

Verbatim, as far as I could manage, but with some minor re-phrasing here
and there so it flowed together.

Text 1 -- the Song of Songs.

4.2 Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn

4.12 A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed

4.14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon,

5.8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem

5.11 His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven

7.2 Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor: thy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with lilies.

Text 2.
