King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. 15 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.
16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets. 16 Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?
17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers ' with thee. 17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.
18 Let thy fountain be blessed : and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. 18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love. 19 A loving doe, a graceful deer-- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.
20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman , and embrace the bosom of a stranger? 20 Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man's wife?
