Up From The Wilderness And Under The Apple Tree

4 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up, nor awake love, until it please. 5 Who is this who comes up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? Under the apple tree I awoke thee. There thy mother was in travail with thee. There she who brought thee forth was in travail. 6 Set me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thine arm. For love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as Sheol. The flashes of it are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame.
