English Standard Version
18 Let your (A)fountain be blessed,
and (B)rejoice in (C)the wife of your youth,
19 a lovely (D)deer, a graceful doe.
Let her breasts (E)fill you at all times with delight;
be intoxicated[a] always in her love.
20 Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with (F)a forbidden woman
and embrace the bosom of (G)an adulteress?[b]
21 For (H)a man's ways are (I)before the eyes of the Lord,
and he (J)ponders[c] all his paths.
