Song of Solomon 8:6-14
English Standard Version
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as (A)a seal upon your arm,
for (B)love is strong as death,
(C)jealousy[a] is fierce as the grave.[b]
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
the very (D)flame of the Lord.
7 Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.
If a man offered for love
all the wealth of his (E)house,
he[c] would be utterly despised.
8 We have a little sister,
and she (F)has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister
on the day when she is spoken for?
9 If she is a wall,
we will build on her a battlement of silver,
but if she is a door,
we will enclose her with (G)boards of cedar.
11 Solomon had (J)a vineyard at Baal-hamon;
he (K)let out the vineyard to (L)keepers;
each one was to bring for its fruit (M)a thousand pieces of silver.
12 My vineyard, my very own, is before me;
you, O Solomon, may have the thousand,
and (N)the keepers of the fruit two hundred.
