Song of Solomon 8:6-7
A Reading from the Song of Solomon:
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your
arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding
as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it
away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for
love, it would be utterly scorned.
The word of the Lord.
