[Bride]

10 I am a wall, and my breasts are like towers.
    So he considers me to be one who has found peace.[a]
11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon.
    He entrusted that vineyard to caretakers.
    Each one was to bring 25 pounds of silver
        in exchange for its fruit.
12 My own vineyard is in front of me.
    That 25 pounds is yours, Solomon,
        and 5 pounds go to those who take care of its fruit.
