Song of Solomon. The prudes insist that it was written in love of G*d, but I don’t think so.

There are hundreds!
Deuteronomy 6:5
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

@Oo; are you talking about Love of G*d, or more carnal love?

Song of Solomon MAY be considered an allegory for the love of G*d, but there are less ambiguous passages, as Gooch noted.

Read all of Exodus, too.

Dt 7:12 God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your forefathers.

I recommend places like where you can search for specific words within the entire text of the bible. That way you can try different phrases to get exactly what you’re looking for.

Good luck.
