10 I am a wall, and my breasts like towers,
    then I was in his eyes like one who found peace.
11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon.
    He leased out the vineyard to keepers.
    Each was to bring a thousand shekels[a] of silver for its fruit.
12 My own vineyard is before me.
    The thousand are for you, Solomon,
    two hundred for those who tend its fruit.
