The Lovers Speak

1 "Oh that you were like a brother to me

Who nursed at my mother's breasts.

If I found you outdoors, I would kiss you;

No one would despise me, either.

2 "I would lead you and bring R207 you

Into the house of my mother, who used to instruct me;

I would give you spiced wine to drink from the juice of my pomegranates.

3 "Let his R208 left hand be under my head

And his right hand embrace me."

4 "I R209 F113 want you to swear, O daughters of Jerusalem,

Do F114 not arouse or awaken my love

Until she F115 pleases."

5 "Who R210 F116 is this coming up from the wilderness

Leaning on her beloved?"

"Beneath F117 the apple R211 F118 tree I awakened you;

There your mother was in labor with you,

There she was in labor and gave you birth.

6 "Put me like a seal F119 over your heart,

Like a seal R212 on your arm.

For love is as strong as death,

Jealousy R213 F120 is as severe as Sheol;

Its flashes are flashes of fire,

The F121 very flame of the LORD.

7 "Many waters cannot quench love,

Nor will rivers overflow it;

If R214 a man were to give all the riches of his house for love,

It would be utterly despised."

8 "We F122 have a little sister,

And she has R215 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 barricade her with planks R216 of cedar."

10 "I F123 was a wall, and my R217 breasts were like towers;

Then I became in his eyes as one who finds peace.

11 "Solomon had a vineyard R218 at Baal-hamon;

He entrusted R219 the vineyard to caretakers. R220

Each one was to bring a thousand R221 shekels of silver for its fruit. R222

12 "My very own vineyard is at F124 my disposal;

The thousand shekels are for you, Solomon,

And two hundred are for those who take care of its fruit."

13 "O F125 you who sit in the gardens,

My companions R223 are listening for your voice--

Let R224 me hear it!"

14 "<,>Hurry, F127 F126 my beloved,

And be like R225 a gazelle or a young stag F128

On the mountains R226 of spices."
