Song of Songs 8
New Living Translation
8[Young Woman] Oh, I wish you were my brother, who nursed at my mother’s breasts. Then I could kiss you no matter who was watching, and no one would criticize me.H5414H251H3243H7699H517H4672H2351H5401H936 2I would bring you to my childhood home, and there you would teach me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, my sweet pomegranate wine.H5090H935H517H1004H3925H8248H7544H3196H6071H7416 3Your left arm would be under my head, and your right arm would embrace me.H8040H7218H3225H2263 4Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to awaken love until the time is right.H7650H1323H3389H5782H5782H160H2654 5[Young Women of Jerusalem] Who is this sweeping in from the desert, leaning on her lover? [Young Woman] I aroused you under the apple tree, where your mother gave you birth, where in great pain she delivered you.H5927H4057H7514H1730H5782H8598H517H2254H2254H3205 6Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave. Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame.H7760H2368H3820H2368H2220H160H5794H4194H7068H7186H7585H7565H7565H784H7957 7Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.H7227H4325H3201H3518H160H5104H7857H376H5414H1952H1004H160H936H936 8[The Young Woman’s Brothers] We have a little sister too young to have breasts. What will we do for our sister if someone asks to marry her?H6996H269H7699H6213H269H3117H1696 9If she is a virgin, like a wall, we will protect her with a silver tower. But if she is promiscuous, like a swinging door, we will block her door with a cedar bar.H2346H1129H2918H3701H1817H6696H3871H730 10[Young Woman] I was a virgin, like a wall; now my breasts are like towers. When my lover looks at me, he is delighted with what he sees.H2346H7699H4026H5869H4672H7965 11Solomon has a vineyard at Baal-hamon, which he leases out to tenant farmers. Each of them pays a thousand pieces of silver for harvesting its fruit.H8010H3754H1174H5414H3754H5201H376H6529H935H505H3701 12But my vineyard is mine to give, and Solomon need not pay a thousand pieces of silver. But I will give two hundred pieces to those who care for its vines.H3754H6440H8010H505H5201H6529H3967 13[Young Man] O my darling, lingering in the gardens, your companions are fortunate to hear your voice. Let me hear it, too!H3427H1588H2270H7181H6963H8085 14[Young Woman] Come away, my love! Be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of spices.H1272H1730H1819H6643H6082H354H2022H1314
