The embrace (Song 8:3-8:3)

Female lover

“O that

His left hand was under my head!

His right hand embraced me!”

Here is an exact repetition, word for word, of the same verse that was in chapter 2. This female lover wants her lover to put his left hand under her head at the same time that his right hand embraces her. This young female lover still yearns for the embrace of her beloved.
