Joyful verses (all in Hebrew calligraphy) taken from the Song of Songs along with blessings for good luck surrounds this amorphous design: "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine". "I found He whom my soul loves". "Place me like a seal upon Your heart, like a seal upon Your outstretched arm; for Your love is as strong as death". "Vast amounts of water cannot extinguish My love for you and rivers cannot flood it". "Go out and see, daughters of Zion, the King Shlomo; in the crown which His mother has made Him, on the day of His wedding, and on the day that His heart rejoices". "Gladden the beloved companions as you gladden your creature in Garden of Eden from aforetime". "Praised are You, Adonai our God, who rules the universe, who created joy and gladness, bride and groom, pleasure, song, delight, laughter, love and harmony, peace and companionship, Adonai our God, may there always be heard in the cities of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem voices of joy and gladness, of happiness, voices of bride and groom, the jubilant voices of those joined in marriage under the huppah, the voices of young people feasting and singing. Praise are You, Adonai, who causes the groom and the bride to rejoice together." This design is printed on a rectangular shaped paper.
