The Lovers Speak

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:1 - “Oh that you were like a brother to me
Who nursed at my mother’s breasts.
If I found you outdoors, I would kiss you;
No one would despise me, either.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:2 - “I would lead you and bring you
Into the house of my mother, who used to instruct me;
I would give you spiced wine to drink from the juice of my pomegranates.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:3 - “Let his left hand be under my head
And his right hand embrace me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:4 - [fn]I want you to swear, O daughters of Jerusalem,
[fn]Do not arouse or awaken my love
Until [fn]she pleases.”

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:5 - [fn]Who is this coming up from the wilderness
Leaning on her beloved?”
[fn]Beneath the [fn]apple tree I awakened you;
There your mother was in labor with you,
There she was in labor and gave you birth.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:6 - “Put me like a [fn]seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
[fn]Jealousy is as severe as Sheol;
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
[fn]The very flame of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:7 - “Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor will rivers overflow it;
If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love,
It would be utterly despised.”

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:8 - [fn]We have a little sister,
And she has no breasts;
What shall we do for our sister
On the day when she is spoken for?

We will build on her a battlement of silver;
But if she is a door,
We will barricade her with planks of cedar.”

Then I became in his eyes as one who finds peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:11 - “Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon;

Each one was to bring a thousand shekels of silver for its fruit.

The thousand shekels are for you, Solomon,
And two hundred are for those who take care of its fruit.”

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 8:13 - [fn]O you who sit in the gardens,
My companions are listening for your voice—
Let me hear it!”

And be like a gazelle or a young [fn]stag
On the mountains of spices.”
