Song of Songs 2:5-6

5-6Oh! Give me something refreshing to eat—and quickly!

Apricots, raisins—anything. I'm about to faint with love!

His left hand cradles my head,

and his right arm encircles my waist!

7Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem,

by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer:

Don't excite love, don't stir it up,

until the time is ripe—and you're ready.
