View In My Bible
2 "I would lead you and 1bring 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. 3 "Let 2his left hand be under my head And his right hand embrace me." 4 "a3I want you to swear, O daughters of Jerusalem, bDo not arouse or awaken my love Until cshe pleases." 5 "d4Who is this coming up from the wilderness Leaning on her beloved?" "e Beneath the f5 apple tree I awakened you; There your mother was in labor with you, There she was in labor and gave you birth. 6 "Put me like a gseal over your heart, Like a 6seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, h7Jealousy is as severe as Sheol; Its flashes are flashes of fire, iThe very flame of the LORD. 7 "Many waters cannot quench love, Nor will rivers overflow it; 8If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love, It would be utterly despised." 8 "jWe have a little sister, And she 9has no breasts; What shall we do for our sister On the day when she is spoken for? 9 "If she is a wall, We will build on her a battlement of silver; But if she is a door, We will barricade her with 10planks of cedar." 10 "kI was a wall, and 11my breasts were like towers; Then I became in his eyes as one who finds peace. 11 "Solomon had a 12vineyard at Baal-hamon; He 13entrusted the vineyard to 14caretakers. Each one was to bring a 15thousand shekels of silver for its 16fruit. 12 "My very own vineyard is lat my disposal; The thousand shekels are for you, Solomon, And two hundred are for those who take care of its fruit."
