Song of Songs 1:3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing—
over and over poured out.
For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.”[a]
No wonder the brides-to-be adore you.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Song of Songs 1:3 The Hebrew contains a wordplay with the words “name” (shem) and “oil” (shemen).
  2. Song of Songs 1:3 Because of the order of the consonants, some Jewish sources translate this “The maidens love you unto death.” See Goldin, Song, 116; J. Sason, “On Pope’s Song,” 191.
