Set me as a seal upon thy heart,
As a seal upon thine arm:
For love is strong as death;
Jealousy is [a]cruel as Sheol;
The flashes thereof are flashes of fire,
[b]A very flame of [c]Jehovah.
Many waters cannot quench love,
Neither can floods drown it:
If a man would give all the substance of his house for love,
[d]He would utterly be contemned.

We have a little sister,
And she hath no breasts:
What shall we do for our sister
In the day when she shall be spoken for?
