Song of Solomon 8


8 We have a little sister,
and she d has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister
on the day when she is spoken for?
9 If she is a wall,
we will build on her a battlement of silver,
but if she is a door,
we will enclose her with e boards of cedar.


10 f I was a wall,
and my g breasts were like towers;
then I was in his eyes
as one who finds 1 peace.

11 Solomon had h a vineyard at Baal-hamon;
he i let out the vineyard to j keepers;
each one was to bring for its fruit k a thousand pieces of silver.
12 My vineyard, my very own, is before me;
you, O Solomon, may have the thousand,
and l the keepers of the fruit two hundred.


13 m O you who dwell in the gardens,
with n companions listening for your voice;
o let me hear it.


14 p Make haste, my beloved,
and be q like a gazelle
or a young stag
on r the mountains of spices.
