(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 The song of songs, which is Solomons.

2 Let him kisse mee with the kisses of his mouth: for thy Loue is better then wine.

3 Because of the sauour of thy good ointments, thy name is as ointment powred forth, therefore doe the virgins loue thee.

4 Draw me, we will runne after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and reioyce in thee, we wil remember thy loue more then wine: the vpright loue thee.

5 I am blacke, but comely, (O ye daughters of Ierusalem) as the tents of Kedar, as the curtaines of Solomon.

6 Looke not vpon me because I am blacke, because the Sunne hath looked vpon me: my mothers children were angry with me, they made me the keeper of the vineyards, but mine owne vineyard haue I not kept.

7 Tell me, (O thou whom my soule loueth) where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flocke to rest at noone: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flockes of thy companions?

8 If thou know not (O thou fairest among women) goe thy way forth by the footsteps of the flocke, and feede thy kiddes beside the shepheards tents.

9 I haue compared thee, O my loue, to a company of horses in Pharaohs chariots.

10 Thy cheekes are comely with rowes of iewels, thy necke with chaines of golde.

11 Wee will make thee borders of golde, with studdes of siluer.

12 While the king sitteth at his table, my spikenard sendeth foorth the smell thereof.

13 A bundle of myrrhe is my welbeloued vnto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.

14 My beloued is vnto me, as a cluster of Camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.

15 Behold, thou art faire, my loue: behold, thou art faire, thou hast doues eyes.

16 Behold, thou art faire, my beloued; yea pleasant: also our bedde is greene.

17 The beames of our house are Cedar, and our rafters of firre.

I dont understand what the song of Solomon is trying to say. I have prayed for understanding . It sounds poetic but speaks in terminology that is confusing to me ..

I love people who distort the scripture,as if one needs to explain that even though they are black, they are still worthy of praise. this is and has always been racist. "stick to the original verse ".

Song of Solomon chapter 5 we all must come to a point in our life and realized that black people didn 't just appear on earth after the bible was written. We were here like all other races and have always played a major part. The words the people in the middles east had very fair skin.... But the word saids clearly I AM BLACK

Very interesting. But to comment on, I have to work more on it.

I don 't see middle eastern at all lets not ignore the truth once again. Solomon is more like the tribe of Benjamin or Levi so please brothers and sisters do your research it will help you to know the bible.


Kimber's Song of Solomon Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 8/31/2014, 8:11am...

I thought the woman was speaking at this point and that she was the one who had black or very dark skin. Either way the people of the Bible, especially the Old Testament were of the Middle East and therefore a shade of brown light or dark they were darker than pale skinned Europeans I thought I would add that part for people like James who might have an image of pale skinned people when reading the Bible .
