10 Her: I was a wall,
        and now my breasts are like towers;
    At that time I found completeness and satisfaction in his eyes.

11     Solomon had a vineyard in Baal-hamon;
        he let farmers tend it and charged each a ransom for its produce—1,000 pieces of silver.
12     My vineyard is my own—mine to lend or mine to lease.
        Solomon, you may have your 1,000;
    Those who tend the fruit, your 200.

10 I am a wall,
    and my breasts are like towers.
Thus I have become in his eyes
    like one bringing contentment.
11 Solomon had a vineyard(A) in Baal Hamon;
    he let out his vineyard to tenants.
Each was to bring for its fruit
    a thousand shekels[a](B) of silver.
12 But my own vineyard(C) is mine to give;
    the thousand shekels are for you, Solomon,
    and two hundred[b] are for those who tend its fruit.
