Yea, and none would despise me.

There thy mother was in travail with thee,
There was she in travail that brought thee forth.

For love is strong as death;

The flashes thereof are flashes of fire,
A very flame of Jehovah.

Neither can floods drown it:
If a man would give all the substance of his house for love,

What shall we do for our sister
In the day when she shall be spoken for?

Then was I in his eyes as one that found peace.

Thou, O Solomon, shalt have the thousand,
And those that keep the fruit thereof two hundred.

The companions hearken for thy voice:
Cause me to hear it.

Make haste, my beloved,
And be thou like to a roe or to a young hart
Upon the mountains of spices.
