Song of Solomon 8:6-8 World English Bible (WEB)

Set me as a seal on your heart,
    as a seal on your arm;
    for love is strong as death.
    Jealousy is as cruel as Sheol.[a]
    Its flashes are flashes of fire,
    a very flame of Yahweh.[b]
Many waters can’t quench love,
    neither can floods drown it.
If a man would give all the wealth of his house for love,
    he would be utterly scorned.

Brothers

We have a little sister.
    She has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister
    in the day when she is to be spoken for?
