Proverbs 5:18-19

May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love. (NIV)

One Response to Proverbs 5:18-19

  1. Not a good translation. Telling a person to be ‘intoxicated’.
    Thats like being ‘insane’/ ‘possessed’ etc. All three words are wild and extreme… could lead a man to commit suiside or murder.

    The KJV says “and be thou ravished always with her love.”
