Song of Solomon chapter 8

O that I might find thee without, and kiss thee, whom I love as my brother which sucked my mother's breasts: and that thou wouldest not be offended, if I took thee, and brought thee in to my mother's house: that thou mightest teach me, and that I might give thee drink of spiced wine and of the sweet sap of my pomegranates. His left hand lieth under my head, and his right hand embraceth me. I charge you, O ye daughters of Ierusalem, that ye wake not up my love, nor touch her, till she be content herself.
What is she this, that cometh up from the wilderness, and leaneth upon her love? I am the same that waked thee up among the apple trees, where thy mother bear thee, where thy mother brought thee in to the world. O set me as a seal upon thine heart, and as a seal upon thine arm: for love is mighty as the death, and jealousy as the hell. Her coals are of fire, and a very flame of the LORD: so that many waters are not able to quench love, neither may the streams drown it. Yea if a man would give all the good of his house for love, he should count it nothing.
When our love is told our young sister, whose breasts are not yet grown, what shall we do unto her? If she be a wall, we shall build a silver bulwark there upon: if she be a tower, we shall fasten her with borders of Cedar tree. If I be a wall, and my breasts like towers, then am I as one that hath found favour in his sight. Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon, this vineyard delivered he unto the keepers: that every one for the fruit thereof should give him a thousand pieces of silver. But my vineyard, O Solomon, giveth thee a thousand, and two hundredth to the keepers of the fruit.
Thou that dwellest in the gardens, O let me hear thy voice, that my companions may harken to the same. O get thee away, my love, as a roe or a young hart unto the sweet smelling mountains.
