Song of Solomon 8:6-7 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Keep me near you like a seal you wear over your heart,
    like a signet ring you wear on your hand.
Love is as strong as death.
    Passion is as strong as the grave.[a]
Its sparks become a flame,
    and it grows to become a great fire[b]!
A flood cannot put out love.
    Rivers cannot drown love.
Would people despise a man for giving
    everything he owns for love?

Song of Solomon 8:6-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Put me like a [a]seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
[b]Jealousy is as severe as Sheol;
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
[c]The very flame of the Lord.
“Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor will rivers overflow it;
If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love,
It would be utterly despised.”

Cantares 8:6-7 La Biblia de las Américas (LBLA)

EL ESPOSO:

Debajo del manzano[a] te[b] desperté;
allí tu madre tuvo dolores de parto por ti,
allí tuvo dolores de parto, y te dio a luz.

LA ESPOSA:

Ponme como sello sobre tu corazón,
como sello sobre tu brazo,
porque fuerte como la muerte es el amor,
inexorables[c] como el Seol[d], los celos;
sus destellos, destellos de fuego,
la llama misma del Señor[e].
Las muchas aguas no pueden extinguir el amor,
ni los ríos lo anegarán;
si el hombre diera todos los bienes de su casa por amor,
de cierto lo menospreciarían.
