She Answers Her Brothers

10 I am a wall,
    and my breasts are my towers.
    And he is satisfied with me![a]

He Speaks

11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon.
    He put men in charge of the vineyard.
Each man brought in grapes
    worth 1000 shekels[b] of silver.

12 Solomon, you can keep your 1000 shekels.
    Give 200 shekels to each man for the grapes he brought.
    But I will keep my own vineyard.
