Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Common English Bible (CEB)

Set me as a seal over your heart,
        as a seal upon your arm,
for love is as strong as death,
        passionate love unrelenting as the grave.[a]
Its darts are darts of fire—
        divine flame!
Rushing waters can’t quench love;
        rivers can’t wash it away.
If someone gave
        all his estate in exchange for love,
        he would be laughed to utter shame.

[The Woman’s Brothers]

Our sister is small;
        she has no breasts.
What will we do for our sister
        on the day that she is spoken for?
