[b-hebrew] Song of songs 6:9 wild guess

Song of Songs 6:9 is usually translated as saying that she (Shulamit) is the 
choice or chosen one of her mother. I was wondering if instead it could say 
"for a maid is pure, she is for her childbearer." Maybe this could be like 
Sarah's maid, Hagar, who had a child for her. Also, Jacob's two wives let 
their maids have kids with him.

I don't really get the usual translation's meaning about her being her 
mother's chosen one.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Greifer
