Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Set me as a seal on your heart,
as a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death;
ardent love is as unrelenting as Sheol.
Love’s flames are fiery flames
the fiercest of all.[a]
Mighty waters cannot extinguish love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If a man were to give all his wealth[b] for love,
it would be utterly scorned.

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