Song of Songs 8:8-10 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Brothers

Our sister is young;
she has no breasts.
What will we do for our sister
on the day she is spoken for?
If she is a wall,
we will build a silver barricade on her.
If she is a door,
we will enclose her with cedar planks.

Woman

10 I am[a] a wall
and my breasts like towers.
So in his eyes I have become
like one who finds[b] peace.[c]

Song of Solomon 8:8-10 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

We have a little sister,
    and she has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister,
    on the day when she is spoken for?
If she is a wall,
    we will build upon her a battlement of silver;
but if she is a door,
    we will enclose her with boards of cedar.
10 I was a wall,
    and my breasts were like towers;
then I was in his eyes
    as one who brings[a] peace.
