New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
8 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? 8 We have a young sister, and her breasts are not yet grown. What shall we do for our sister for the day she is spoken for?
9 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. 9 If she is a wall, we will build towers of silver on her. If she is a door, we will enclose her with panels of cedar.
10 I was a wall, and my breasts were like towers; then I was in his eyes as one who brings peace. 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 at Baal-hamon; he entrusted the vineyard to keepers; each one was to bring for its fruit a thousand pieces of silver. 11 Solomon had a vineyard in Baal Hamon; he let out his vineyard to tenants. Each was to bring for its fruit a thousand shekels of silver.
12 My vineyard, my very own, is for myself; you, O Solomon, may have the thousand, and the keepers of the fruit two hundred! 12 But my own vineyard is mine to give; the thousand shekels are for you, O Solomon, and two hundred are for those who tend its fruit.
13 O you who dwell in the gardens, my companions are listening for your voice; let me hear it. 13 You who dwell in the gardens with friends in attendance, let me hear your voice!
14 Make haste, my beloved, and be like a gazelle or a young stag upon the mountains of spices! 14 Come away, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the spice-laden mountains.
