Drink water out of your own cistern, Running water out of your own well.
Should your springs overflow in the streets, Streams of water in the public squares?
Let them be for yourself alone, Not for strangers with you.
Let your spring be blessed. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
A loving hind and a pleasant doe -- Let her breasts satisfy you at all times. Be captivated always with her love.
For why should you, my son, be captivated with an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another?
