15 Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well.
16 Should your 1springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be yours alone And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your 2fountain be blessed, And 3rejoice in the 4wife of your youth.
19 As a loving 5hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love.
20 For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an 6adulteress And embrace the bosom of a 7foreigner?
