Song of Solomon 3-4

Song of Solomon 3-4

Chapter 3: A Love Song for Solomon

This is a love song apparently for Solomon, the author writes: “…I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.” (Song of Solomon 3:4) Obviously Song of Solomon is very “erotic” in nature, it does not really fit with the rest of the Bible.

Chapter 4: Song of “Beauty”

The author in this chapter describes the love of his sister; “Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse… How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! …” (Song of Solomon 4:9-10) and then goes on to describe “…pleasant fruits.” (Song of Solomon 4:16). No doubts that the Book of Solomon is one giant love poem.
