Song of Solomon 1:6; Song of Solomon 8:11–12

Do not gaze at me because I am dark,

because the sun has looked upon me.

My mmother's sons were angry with me;

they made me nkeeper of othe vineyards,

but pmy own vineyard I have not kept!


11  Solomon had ha vineyard at Baal-hamon;

he ilet out the vineyard to jkeepers;

each one was to bring for its fruit ka thousand pieces of silver.

12  My vineyard, my very own, is before me;

you, O Solomon, may have the thousand,

and lthe keepers of the fruit two hundred.
