Abstract Reading the adjuration refrain in Song of Songs (2.7; 3.5; 8.4) as a warning against disturbing lovers indulging their passions, though advocated by a few scholars past and present, has been rejected in recent scholarship due to an inadequate defense. In this article, it is suggested that the contextual and thematic continuity, literary structure, genre parallels, and grammar of this passage support the probability of such a reading.
