running water from your own well.
your streams of water in the public squares?
never to be shared with strangers.
18 May your fountainw be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.x
19 A loving doe, a graceful deery—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?
21 For your ways are in full viewz of the Lord,
22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;c
the cords of their sins hold them fast.d
23 For lack of discipline they will die,e
led astray by their own great folly.f
