“Put me like a [a]seal over your heart,
Like a (A)seal on your arm.

[b](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;
(C)If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love,
It would be utterly despised.”

And she (D)has no breasts;
What shall we do for our sister
On the day when she is spoken for?
