Song of Songs 8:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
For Love is strong as Death,
longing is fierce as Sheol.
Its arrows are arrows of fire,
flames of the divine.
7 Deep waters cannot quench love,
nor rivers sweep it away.
Were one to offer all the wealth of his house for love,
he would be utterly despised.
An Answer to the Brothers
8 W “We have a little sister;
she has no breasts as yet.
What shall we do for our sister
on the day she is spoken for?
