Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Keep me near you like a seal you wear over your heart,
    like a signet ring you wear on your hand.
Love is as strong as death.
    Passion is as strong as the grave.[a]
Its sparks become a flame,
    and it grows to become a great fire[b]!
A flood cannot put out love.
    Rivers cannot drown love.
Would people despise a man for giving
    everything he owns for love?

Her Brothers Speak

We have a little sister,
    and her breasts are not yet grown.
What should we do for our sister
    when a man comes asking to marry her?
