    Lebanon is the symbolic love that is sought by Israel in the Song of Solomon. Lebanon is Israel 's sister as they share the same father, Abraham. Lebanon may be shown as a sister because they are the militarily weaker nation that Israel seeks to protect to join in union in a symbolic marriage as contractual allies, treating each other as family. Verse 4, Lebanons neck is compared to a military armory and verse 9 shows that one chain around this armory is seizing and taking away by force, the meaning of ravishing, Israel. This chain may be a portion of Lebanons military or government or an ally of Lebanon that is in opposition to Israel or it could be terrorists that threaten the borders of both Lebanon and Israel. Verse 9, Israel can show Lebanon the lions and leopards outside of Lebanon that want Lebanon as prey. This would be military intel that Israel has. Verse 12, a garden represents peace and the garden of Lebanon is sealed and protected if they join with Israel. Verse 16 may be saying if Lebanon joins with Israel in a contract agreement, Lebanon will be as a strong man, brother, in peace and prosper, no longer viewed as a sister that needs help.
