Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
The Nature of Genuine Romantic Love
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death;
passion is fierce as Sheol;
its flashes are flashes of fire;
it is a blazing flame.
7 Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If a man were to give all the wealth of his house for love,
he would be utterly scorned.
Maiden’s Virtuous Chastity and Voluptuous Beauty
8 We have a little sister,
and she does not yet have any breasts.
What should we do for our sister
on the day when she is betrothed?
