Song of Solomon 8:6-7 Love is as Strong as Death

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.
Many 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 condemned.

  • Appropriate

    Is Songs of Solomon 8:6 Not an appropriate verse to be inscripted on a wedding band..... the idea of the ring, forever going without an end... the symbol of love to be worn on the left fourth digit of the hand... that Egyptians believed bore the very vein that flows straight to the heart? "set me as a seal" The wedding band, seals two as one in marriage.... "upon thy heart...... as a seal upon thy arm" Extremely appropriate.... Symbolism in love, commitment, eternity.........

  • Loving you is my desire

    It is my greatest joy that God first loved us and want us to love one another. The greatest thing in ones life is to be forever loved and never condemned as Jesus did on the cross for us. Let us do likewise to others.
