Hi Julian. Read a little more carefully! It 's not King Solomon talking in verse 5, it 's the women who he loves.

SOLOMON IS SAYING "I AM BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL DO NOT LOOK DOWN UPON ME BECAUSE I AM BLACK, BECAUSE THE SUN HAVE TAKEN HEAT UNTO MY FLESH ".......... SOLOMON IS INDEED DARK SKINNED, WHY DO YOU THINK They Mistaked The JEWS FOR BEING EGYPTIAN? For Example PAUL....EGYPT IS AFRICA, THE JEWS ARE INDEED BLACK PEOPLE........2 Peter 1:20 The scriptures are of no Private interpretation THEY ARE INDEED BLACK Christ Rev 1:14-15Rev.1:14-15 feet like burnt brass BURNT BRASS!!! GOD didn 't leave his people void...

I believe that this is not intentionally racist, nor is it meant to be taken entirely literally. Very dark flesh in the ancient middle east would 've been slightly exotic, but it also is a common descriptor for evil or sinful ideas and actions. This was a way of saying that not all things dark fall into that category. It was also seen as an allusion to the queen of Sheba by the alchemists of the middle ages and renaissance and a common fantasy of the white European or Anglo was to purify the dark black earthly feminine into its golden white counterpart. One of many ways of describing the process of transmutation from the lead of simple fallen earthly woman to the golden white of the ineffable godhead. Also according to other myths of the time Solomon and the queen of Sheba have a daughter named Bellacarne who is black and white and whose name means "beautiful flesh " roughly translated. I think this proves that it is less to do with race and more to do with a balancing of the two extremes. Beautiful words.

Salomon is talking about his passionate love for The Queen of Shiba, that resulted is the fall of Israel He loved this woman the same love his father David loved Bashiba, ready to forget his covenant with God for her. And that resulted in his own fall and the all of Israel. I wonder if that would have happened if those priest would have left him love the woman of his heart, that 's all he wanted.

Written by solomon,this book was probably inspired by the wife of his youth, Naamah. It is a wonderful book showing the beauty of marital love.

The song of Soloman to me represents the church how we long to see our betrothed coming. It 's a love story. The bride if Christ longing for her lover and her lover longing for her...I think Solomon was seeing into the future.

I think he is saying what is it other than nourishment that feeds the soul? I take it to mean inspiration to love and be lost in love and love unconditionally.

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 ..

 


Shawn's comment about verse 5 on 12/13/2014, 6:49pm...

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 ".

 


Girma's comment about verse 4 on 9/12/2014, 4:39am...

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

 


Mario's comment on 9/01/2014, 11:15am...

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 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 .

 


L.N.'s comment on 8/13/2014, 3:45pm...

I think it was inspired by Queen Cleopatra of Egypt

Pastor luke's comment on 2/04/2014, 1:59pm...

It is very important to understand the big picture of Solomon to grasp the truth. The end really ties it all together with Revelation Watch YouTube Pastor Luke- Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes

Personal hygiene is important and the use of perfume is a plus. We can be around attractive people all day long but we must not lust after them that is only reserve for your husband or wife. So, don't let your eyes linger upon them to stir up passion of lust..

 


Marang's comment about verse 6 on 12/23/2013, 10:26am...

I think about dead fish selfish. If you don't have the Holy Spirit to guide you or you continue to do wrong to Gods people there will be consequences. People need to understand that the symbol of dead fish means a fish without the living water. Most people find times where they run into self centered individuals. These people can be in your very own family so you have to be on guard to take care of your own life before you allow someone to use you up.

 


Sam C's comment on 10/19/2013, 7:53am...

All the Songs Of Solomon are foreshadow of Jesus' love for his bride the church. remember that all scripture is given by inspiration of God. Solomon is a foreshadow of Christ and the Shulamite Bride is a foreshadow of the church. The passion and adoration of these Old Testament characters represent Christ's love for His church. Remember Ephesians 5:25

 


Alicia's comment on 10/01/2013, 11:02pm...

The woman represents the Church and she talks with her love, which represents Jesus Christ. One day soon, Jesus will come back to take the Church to the King's chambers and abide there. Beloved Lord Jesus, tarry not long! Rapture your love to the home you've been preparing above! But until you're time be revealed, we will wait.

 


Patrick Pollard's comment about verse 5 on 9/20/2013, 3:00pm...

Not 'he' is black and beautiful, but 'she is black and beautiful. Note the 1st phrasings from the 'Song of Solomon.
1. The Song of songs, which is Solomon's.
2. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth:
for thy love is better than wine.
3. Because of the savor of thy good ointments
thy name is as ointment poured forth,
therefore do the virgins love thee.
4. Draw me, we will run after thee:
the King hath brought me into his chambers:
we will be glad and rejoice in thee,
we will remember thy love more than wine:
the upright love thee.
5. I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem,as the tents of Kedar,as the curtains of Solomon.

The bible shows how the real love is all about...that a true love comes GOD.

it is very interesting, encouraging, things you can live with your daily life style, and to love God as who you would a person even more.
