Song of Solomon 8
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; and I should not be despised.

2I would lead thee and bring thee into my mother’s house, that thou would instruct me; I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate.

3His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.

4I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye not awake nor stir up love until he pleases.

5Who is she that comes up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I woke thee up under the apple tree; there thy mother had birth pains; there she had pains that brought thee into the light.

6Set me as a seal upon thine heart as a sign upon thine arm; for love is strong as death; jealousy is hard as Sheol; the coals thereof are coals of fire, which have a most vehement flame.

7The many waters cannot quench love, neither can the rivers drown it; if a man would give all the substance of his house for this love, it would certainly be despised.

8We have a little sister, and she still has no breasts; what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for?

9If 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.

10I am a wall, and my breasts like towers since I was in his eyes as the one that found peace.

11Solomon had a vineyard at Baalhamon; he let out the vineyard unto keepers; for its fruit each one was to bring a thousand pieces of silver.

12My vineyard, which is mine, is before me; the thousand pieces shall be thine, O Solomon, and two hundred for those that keep the fruit.

13Thou, she that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken to thy voice; cause me to hear it.

14Run, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices.
