Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
15 Drink water from your own cistern, gushing water from your own well. 15 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains flood outside, streams of water in the public squares? 16 Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?
17 They are yours alone, not for you as well as strangers. 17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.
18 May your spring be blessed. Rejoice in the wife of your youth. 18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 She is a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts intoxicate you all the time; always be drunk on her love. 19 A loving doe, a graceful deer-- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.
20 Why, my son, should you lose your senses with a mysterious woman and embrace the breasts of a foreign female? 20 Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man's wife?
