Song of Solomon 8

JUB 1 O that thou <em>wert</em> as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! <em>when</em> I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; and I should not be despised. NIV 1 If only you were to me like a brother, who was nursed at my mother’s breasts! Then, if I found you outside, I would kiss you, and no one would despise me. JUB 2 I would lead thee <em>and</em> bring thee into my mother’s house, that <em>thou</em> would instruct me; I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate. NIV 2 I would lead you and bring you to my mother’s house— she who has taught me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the nectar of my pomegranates. JUB 3 His left hand <em>should be</em> under my head, and his right hand should embrace me. NIV 3 His left arm is under my head and his right arm embraces me. JUB 4 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye not awake nor stir up love until he pleases. NIV 4 Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. JUB 5 Who <em>is</em> she that comes up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I woke thee up under the apple tree; there thy mother had <em>birth</em> pains; there she had pains <em>that</em> brought thee into the light. NIV 5 Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved? Under the apple tree I roused you; there your mother conceived you, there she who was in labor gave you birth. JUB 6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart as a sign upon thine arm; for love <em>is</em> strong as death; jealousy <em>is</em> hard as Sheol; the coals thereof <em>are</em> coals of fire, <em>which have a</em> most vehement flame. NIV 6 Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. JUB 7 The many waters cannot quench love, neither can the rivers drown it; if <em>a</em> man would give all the substance of his house for this love, it would certainly be despised. NIV 7 Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned. JUB 8 We have a little sister, and she <em>still</em> has no breasts; what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for? NIV 8 We have a little sister, and her breasts are not yet grown. What shall we do for our sister on the day she is spoken for? JUB 9 If she <em>is</em> a wall, we will build upon her a palace of silver; and if she <em>is</em> a door, we will inclose her with boards of cedar. NIV 9 If she is a wall, we will build towers of silver on her. If she is a door, we will enclose her with panels of cedar. JUB 10 I <em>am</em> a wall, and my breasts like towers since I was in his eyes as the one that found peace. NIV 10 I am a wall, and my breasts are like towers. Thus I have become in his eyes like one bringing contentment. JUB 11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baalhamon; he let out the vineyard unto keepers; for its fruit each one was to bring a thousand <em>pieces</em> of silver. NIV 11 Solomon had a vineyard in Baal Hamon; he let out his vineyard to tenants. Each was to bring for its fruit a thousand shekels of silver. JUB 12 My vineyard, which <em>is</em> mine, <em>is</em> before me; the thousand <em>pieces</em> shall be thine, O Solomon, and two hundred for those that keep the fruit. NIV 12 But my own vineyard is mine to give; the thousand shekels are for you, Solomon, and two hundred are for those who tend its fruit. JUB 13 <em>Thou</em>, she that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken to thy voice; cause me to hear <em>it.</em> NIV 13 You who dwell in the gardens with friends in attendance, let me hear your voice! JUB 14 Run, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices. NIV 14 Come away, my beloved, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the spice-laden mountains.
