Song of Solomon 8:6-8 Expanded Bible (EXB)

·Put [Set] me like a seal [C leaving an impression on clay, showing ownership] on your heart [C inside],
    like a seal on your arm [C outside].
Love is as strong as death;
    ·jealousy [or passion] is as ·strong [tenacious] as the grave.
·Love bursts into flames [L Its flame is an intense fire]
    ·and burns like a hot fire [or a godlike flame].
Even much water cannot put out the flame of love;
    floods cannot ·drown [flood] love.
If a man offered ·everything [L all the wealth] in his house for love,
    ·people would totally reject it [or he would be completely despised].

The Woman’s Brothers Speak

We have a ·little [small] sister,
    and ·her breasts are not yet grown [L she has no breasts].
What should we do for our sister
    on the day she ·becomes engaged [L is spoken for; C brothers were in charge of marriage negotiations]?
