[b-hebrew] On Song 2:10

The verse Song 2:10 is typically translated with two imperatives - arise, my
love, my fair one, and come away - or something to that effect.

 

Two repetitions of LAK are not translated


arise! (to you), my companion, my fair one, and go/walk! (to you).


 

What is the grammar or poetry in these two words which I have literally
rendered as 'to you'?

 

Any help appreciated
