Song of Songs 8:6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire forevermore.
This living, consuming flame
will seal you as my prisoner of love.[a]
My passion[b] is stronger
than the chains of death and the grave,
all consuming as the very flashes of fire
from the burning heart of God.[c]
Place this fierce, unrelenting fire over your entire being.

Footnotes:

  1. Song of Songs 8:6 The ancient Hebrew word for “seal” can also be translated “prison cell.” He longs for his bride to be his love prisoner, in the prison cell of his eternal love.
  2. Song of Songs 8:6 Or “jealousy.”
  3. Song of Songs 8:6 The phrase in Hebrew is “a most vehement flame” and is actually two Hebrew words. The first is “a mighty flash of fire,” and the second is “Yah,” which is the sacred name of God himself. The Hebrew shalhebet-yah could be translated “The Mighty Flame of the Lord Most Passionate!”
