1 Solomon's Song of Songs.. 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine. 3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! 4 Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his . King Solomon, the Wise fell in love with a country girl namely Shulamite. She was very poor and dark in complexion. Song of Songs is the true story of Solomon's love affair and marriage to his.

Because Christ claims the Church as his bride (cf. Eph. ), one legitimate application of Song of Songs is to realize that the love described in the book is in many ways similar to the love that Jesus has for the Church (e.g. this is the predominant use of the Song of Songs in the Westminster Standards). At least three central dimensions.   God loves Israel (Hosea ), but this does not require the Song of Solomon to be an allegory about Israel. There may be applications relevant to God’s love for His people, but this is different from interpreting the book as an allegory. The Song of Solomon can be read and interpreted just as it was written, as a love poem.

The phrase "of Solomon" in the Hebrew title of the Song of Songs calls into question whether this was a song "by Solomon," "about Solomon," or "for Solomon." Job's friends assume he must have done something terribly wrong, unjust, or unwise to experience such an incredible tragedy. In the book of Job the Lord presents his servant Job as a model. I am convinced that all of the Old Testament points to Christ in one way or another (Lk , 44). On the other hand, I am acutely aware of how a purely allegorical interpretation of the Song can lead to extremely divergent views; and yet I think there is more than just broad and occasion typological allusions to Christ and His bride in the book.
