King James Version

Song of Solomon 8:1-14

1O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, I should not be despised.8.1 I should not…: Heb. they should not despise me 2I 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. 3His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me. 4I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, until he please.8.4 that…: Heb. why should ye stir up, or, why, etc

5Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple tree: there thy mother brought thee forth: there she brought thee forth that bare thee.

6¶ Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.8.6 cruel: Heb. hard 7Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

8¶ We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts: what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for? 9If she be a wall, we will build upon her a palace of silver: and if she be a door, we will inclose her with boards of cedar. 10I am a wall, and my breasts like towers: then was I in his eyes as one that found favour.8.10 favour: Heb. peace 11Solomon 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. 12My vineyard, which is mine, is before me: thou, O Solomon, must have a thousand, and those that keep the fruit thereof two hundred.

13Thou that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken to thy voice: cause me to hear it.

14¶ Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices.8.14 Make…: Heb. Flee away

雅歌 8:1-14

1如果你是我的同胞兄弟就好了。

这样,在外头遇见你,

我也可以亲吻你,

没有人会取笑我。

2我可以把你带进我母亲的家——她教养了我。

我要给你喝石榴汁酿的醇酒。

3你的左手扶着我的头,

右手紧抱着我。

4耶路撒冷的少女啊,

我恳求你们,

不要叫醒或惊动爱情,

等它自发吧。

耶路撒冷的少女:

5那从旷野上来、靠在良人身旁的是谁呢?

女子:

我在苹果树下唤醒你,

你母亲在那里怀你养你,

为你受生产之苦。

6请把我印在你的心上,

刻在你的手臂上,

因为爱情如死亡一般坚固,

嫉妒像阴间一样残酷,

它燃起的火焰是烧灭一切的烈火。

7爱情,大水不能熄灭,

江河不能淹没。

若有人想倾其家财买爱情,

必遭唾弃。

女子的兄长:

8我们有一个小妹,

她的胸脯还没有发育。

若有人来提亲,

我们该怎么办?

9她若是墙,

我们要在上面建造银塔;

她若是门,

我们要用香柏木板围护她。

女子:

10我是一面墙,

双乳像城楼,

我在他眼中像找到平安的人。

11所罗门巴力·哈们有一个葡萄园,

他把葡萄园租给农夫,

租金是每人一千块银子。

12我的葡萄园,我自己作主。

所罗门啊,你的一千块银子自己留着,

二百块银子给管果园的人。

男子:

13你这住在园中的人啊,

同伴们都在聆听你的声音,

求你让我也听见吧!

女子:

14我的良人啊,

愿你像香草山上的羚羊和小鹿,

快快来到我身边!
