NAS 7 "Many waters cannot quench love, Nor will rivers overflow it; If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love, It would be utterly despised."

NIV 12 But my own vineyard is mine to give; the thousand shekels are for you, Solomon, and two hundred are for those who tend its fruit. NAS 13 "O you who sit in the gardens, My companions are listening for your voice - Let me hear it!" NIV 13 You who dwell in the gardens with friends in attendance, let me hear your voice!
