    I agree with Mary's idea . As I went through the chapters song of songs , there was a female mentioned here, and she was black. And the whole chapters never mentioned God. When we read the Bible that mentioned about the Queen Shiba, I already got my thought that she perhaps became King Salomon's lover and so on.
  • Adriano Belotti
    I think the Song of Solomon is true in what loves is all about. Some times we do things that pulls us from what God wants from us and do wat we think God wants us to do. Love is the only thing that God has for us that makes Him forgive us for those things. The same in a marriage. If one makes a mistake ask for forgiveness from your hard as we do to God and be sincere. Love is for eve so is God.
