On the journey with Christ and reading his word, we just finished Song of Solomon. It was an interesting read.
Song of Solomon is a song of wooing of Solomon and marriage to a shepherdess girl named Shulamite. The joys and heartaches of wedded love.
Hosea 2:19-20 depicts it as the Church as the bride of Christ.
And I will betroth thee unto me forever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.
In the song, they shower each other with love and makes them feel loved and the only special one. He sings that she is most beautiful to him. She sings he is most beautiful to her.
Song of Solomon is a great reminder of how marriage and wedded love can be.
Excerpt from the Bible KJV:
The Song of Solomon is a love song written by Solomon and abounding in metaphors and oriental imagery. Historically, it depicts the wooing and wedding to a shepherdess by King Solomon, and the joys and heartaches of wedded love.
Allegorically, it pictures Israel as God’s betrothed bride (Hos. 2:19-20) and the church as the bride of Christ. As human life finds its highest fulfillment in the love of man and woman, so spiritual life finds its highest fulfillment in the love of God for His people and Christ for His church.
The book is arranged like scenes in a drama with three main speakers: the bride Shulamite), the King (Solomon), and a chorus (daughters of Jerusalem).
My graphic journaling above is how I interpreted Song of Solomon. I would love if you shared how you interpret the book.
Also, would be fun to if you shared what you’re reading and/or journaling through the Bible. Just leave a link in the comments and I’ll come visit you.
