    SongofSolomon 8

    1 Oh that thou wert as my brother, That sucked the breasts of my mother! [When] I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; Yea, and none would despise me.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:1

    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.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:2

    3 His left hand [should be] under my head, And his right hand should embrace me.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:3

    10 I am a wall, and my breasts like the towers [thereof] Then was I in his eyes as one that found peace.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:10

    11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; He let out the vineyard unto keepers; Every one for the fruit thereof was to bring a thousand [pieces] of silver.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:11

    13 Thou that dwellest in the gardens, The companions hearken for thy voice: Cause me to hear it.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:13

    14 Make haste, my beloved, And be thou like to a roe or to a young hart Upon the mountains of spices.ASV — SongofSolomon 8:14
