Song of Solomon 8:1-9

MSG 1 I wish you'd been my twin brother, sharing with me the breasts of my mother, Playing outside in the street, kissing in plain view of everyone, and no one thinking anything of it. 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. MSG 2 I'd take you by the hand and bring you home where I was raised by my mother. You'd drink my wine and kiss my cheeks. 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. MSG 3 Imagine! His left hand cradling my head, his right arm around my waist! NIV 3 His left arm is under my head and his right arm embraces me. MSG 4 Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem: Don't excite love, don't stir it up, until the time is ripe - and you're ready. The Chorus NIV 4 Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. MSG 5 Who is this I see coming up from the country, arm in arm with her lover? I found you under the apricot tree, and woke you up to love. Your mother went into labor under that tree, and under that very tree she bore you. 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. MSG 6 Hang my locket around your neck, wear my ring on your finger. Love is invincible facing danger and death. Passion laughs at the terrors of hell. The fire of love stops at nothing - it sweeps everything before it. 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. MSG 7 Flood waters can't drown love, torrents of rain can't put it out. Love can't be bought, love can't be sold - it's not to be found in the marketplace. 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. MSG 8 My brothers used to worry about me: "Our little sister has no breasts. What shall we do with our little sister when men come asking for her? 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? MSG 9 She's a virgin and vulnerable, and we'll protect her. If they think she's a wall, we'll top it with barbed wire. If they think she's a door, we'll barricade it." 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.
