Song of Songs 8:5-7
New International Version
5 Who is this coming up from the wilderness(A)
leaning on her beloved?
Under the apple tree I roused you;
there your mother conceived(B) you,
there she who was in labor gave you birth.
6 Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love(C) is as strong as death,
its jealousy[a](D) unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.[b]
7 Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it[c] would be utterly scorned.(E)
