Amor de Casal
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.
10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, they are warm; but how can one be warm alone?
12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."
You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride, you have ravished my heart with a glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.
however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church,
O that you would kiss me with the kisses of your mouth! For your love is better than wine,
your anointing oils are fragrant, your name is oil poured out; therefore the maidens love you.
Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned.
So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder."
"When a man is newly married, he shall not go out with the army or be charged with any business; he shall be free at home one year, to be happy with his wife whom he has taken.
Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves.
Behold, you are beautiful, my beloved, truly lovely. Our couch is green;
He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.
18 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
19 a lovely hind, a graceful doe. Let her affection fill you at all times with delight, be infatuated always with her love.
20 Why should you be infatuated, my son, with a loose woman and embrace the bosom of an adventuress?
4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
22 and the rib which the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
23 Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Has not the one God made and sustained for us the spirit of life? And what does he desire? Godly offspring. So take heed to yourselves, and let none be faithless to the wife of his youth.
