Love, death, jealousy and Jesus. Thanks Ben for another great Song of Songs blogpost.

Song of Songs 8:6 NASB

Love Strong Death Jealousy Severe Sheol
Striking, aren’t they?
Other than love and death each is translated in many ways, and we’ll take a look as some of those variations.
But first – to love.
