8:6ח׳:ו׳
1 א

שִׂימֵנִי כַחוֹתָם. בִּשְׁבִיל אוֹתָהּ אַהֲבָה, תַּחְתְּמֵנִי עַל לִבֶּךָ, שֶׁלֹּא תִשְׁכָּחֵנִי, וְתִרְאֶה:

Set me as a seal. For the sake of that love, seal me upon Your heart,6In the same manner that a seal is affixed on one’s hand and is not removed, so too, set me as a seal upon Your heart. (Metzudas Dovid) so that You do not forget me, and You will see.

2 ב

כִּי עַזָּה כַמָּוֶת אַהֲבָה. הָאַהֲבָה שֶׁאֲהַבְתִּיךָ עָלַי כְּנֶגֶד מִיתָתִי שֶׁאֲנִי נֶהֱרֶגֶת עָלֶיךָ:

For love is as strong as death. The extent of my love that I loved You is to me equal to my death, for I am killed for Your sake.7My love to You is so strong that I would choose death before relinquishing my love for You. (Metzudas Dovid)

3 ג

קָשָׁה כְשְׁאוֹל קִנְאָה. הַתִּגָּר שֶׁנִּתְקַנְּאוּ וְשֶׁנִּתְגָּרוּ בִי הָאֻמּוֹת בִּשְׁבִילְךָ. "קִנְאָה" בְּכָל מָקוֹם אינפרמנ"ט בְּלַעַ"ז, לְשׁוֹן אֲחִיזַת הַלֵּב לִנְקֹם נָקָם:

Jealousy is as harsh as the grave. The quarrel that the nations were jealous and quarreled with me because of You. “קִנְאָה” every place [in Scripture] means enprenment in O.F., an expression of conveying feelings to wreak vengeance.

4 ד

אֵשׁ שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה. רְשָׁפִים שֶׁל אֵשׁ חֲזָקָה הַבָּאָה מִכֹּחַ שַׁלְהֶבֶת שֶׁל גֵּיהִנֹּם. טַעַם הַזָּקֵף הַגָּדוֹל הַנָּקוּד עַל "רִשְׁפֵּי", מְלַמְּדֵנוּ עַל תֵּבַת "אֵשׁ" שֶׁהִיא דְבוּקָה לְ"שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה", לוֹמַר "אֵשׁ שֶׁל שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה":

Fire from the flame of God. Coals of a strong fire that comes from the force of the flame of Gehinnom. The cantillation symbol of the zakef gadol, which punctuates “רִשְׁפֵּי” teaches us about the word “אֵשׁ [fire],” that it is connected to “שַׁלְהֶבֶתְיָה,” meaning “fire from the flame of God.”
