Song of Solomon 8:8-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible


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 towers of silver on her. If she is a door, we will enclose her with panels of cedar.


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 vineyard1 in Baal Hamon; he let out his vineyard to tenants. Each was to bring for its fruit a thousand shekelsa2 of silver. 12 But my own vineyard3 is mine to give; the thousand shekels are for you, O Solomon, and two hundredb are for those who tend its fruit.


13 You who dwell in the gardens with friends in attendance, let me hear your voice!


14 Come away, my lover, and be like a gazelle4 or like a young stag5 on the spice-laden mountains.6
