Song of Solomon 8


8:1 O that thou [wert] as my brother, that was nourished at the
 breasts of my mother! [when] I should find thee without, I
 would kiss thee; yes, I should not be despised.
8:2 I would lead thee, [and] bring thee into my mother's house,
 [who] would instruct me: I would cause thee to drink of spiced
 wine of the juice of my pomegranate.
8:3 His left hand [should be] under my head, and his right hand
 should embrace me.
8:4 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not,
 nor awake [my] love, until he please.
8:5 Who [is] this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning
 upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple-tree: there
 thy mother brought thee forth: there she brought thee forth
 [that] bore thee.
8:6 Set me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thy arm: for
 love [is] strong as death; jealousy [is] cruel as the grave:
 the coals of it [are] coals of fire, [which hath] a most
 vehement flame.
8:7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown
 it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for
 love, it would utterly be contemned.
8:8 We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts: what shall
 we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for?
8:9 If she [is] a wall, we will build upon her a palace of
 silver: and if she [is] a door, we will inclose her with boards
 of cedar.
8:10 I [am] a wall, and my breasts like towers: then was I in
 his eyes as one that found favor.
8:11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; he let out the
 vineyard to keepers; every one for the fruit of it was to bring
 a thousand [pieces] of silver.
8:12 My vineyard which [is] mine, [is] before me: thou, O
 Solomon, [must have] a thousand, and those that keep the fruit
 of it two hundred.
8:13 Thou that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken
 to thy voice: cause me to hear [it].
8:14 Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young
 hart upon the mountains of spices.
