Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

[She]

Set me like a seal on your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
passion as cruel as Sh’ol;
its flashes are flashes of fire,
[as fierce as the] flame of Yah.
No amount of water can quench love,
torrents cannot drown it.
If someone gave all the wealth in his house for love,
he would gain only utter contempt.

[Chorus]

We have a little sister;
her breasts are still unformed.
What are we to do with our sister
when she is asked for in marriage?
