Song of Solomon 8
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Who shall give you as a brother to me? My breasts nursed my lambs. I will find you in the street. I will kiss you and they will not despise me

2I shall lead you and I shall bring you to the house of my mother and to the bedroom of her who bore me. I shall give you drink from my sweet wine and from the sweetness of my pomegranates

3His left hand is under my head and his right hand will embrace me

4I charge you, daughters of Jerusalem, do not wake up and do not wake up love until she pleases!

5Who is this coming up from the wilderness and supported by her beloved under the apple tree? I awakened you and there your mother was in labor with you; there your mother labored with you!

6Set me as the seal on your heart and as a seal on your arm, because love is as strong as death, and jealousy hard as Sheol! Its blazing is like the blazing of fire and the flame!

7Many waters are not able to quench love, and rivers do not overwhelm it! If a man will give all the riches of his house for love, mocking they will make a mockery of him

8We have a little sister and she has no breasts; what shall we do for our sister in the day in which she is spoken for?

9If she is a wall, we will build up on her battlements of silver, and if she is a door, we will bind upon her a title of cedar

10I am a wall and my breasts are towers; then I became in his eyes as she who found peace

11There was a vineyard for Solomon and its fruit was abundant. I have given a vineyard to the keepers; a man gave a thousand pieces of silver for its fruits

12My vineyard is mine before me. A thousand coins for you, Solomon, and two hundred to the keepers of the fruit

13Make me hear those dwelling in the gardens and they listen to your voice!

14Return my beloved! Be like a roe or a fawn of a hart on the mountains of spices!
