    Regardless of color. Red, Yellow, Black or Whuite we are all children of the most high God. When I stand next to someone I m not focused on their color I am focused on them being my brother or my sister .

    No swarthy was out dates so dark was used. Someone else thought they knew more from only academics and said black. Where I'm of English and German decent, "maybe" some indian, maybe. But my dad took a picture with a black man and they looked about the same color. Where when he stays out in the sun, he's get swarthy. I have a Sicilian aunt, she's very dark complected relative to my pale face.

    I;VE read others interpartation concearning this book. My beleaf is that i belive it's all about
    CHRIST and his church an the love he had for it.that he gave his life for it. (JOHN;3;16)
  • Alex
    The 2 lovers in Song of Solomon are Christ and the Church,THEY REFER TO EACH OTHER AS HAVING DOVES EYES. DOVES ARE SYMBOLIC OF LOVERS,HUSBAND LOVES YOUR WIVES AS CHRIST LOVE THE CHURCH AND GAVE HIS LIFE FOR IT. REMEMBER THE PRIEST HAD TO WASH 2 DOVES BY RUNNING WATER ( THE JORDAN ) BUT 1 HAD TO BE KILLED AND HIS BLOOD SPRINKLED ON THE LIVING BIRD WHICH IS THE CHURCH.THAT DOVE DESCENDED ON CHRIST.

    One ought to love the Lord Jesus on the same level....ie none like Thee
  • Margaret Merryweather
    It is utterly beautiful, and utterly pure. The world cannot understand such a pure love. It is only when we know Jesus, and as we grow in our love relationship with Him that we can begin to understand such beauty and purity, and the more we understand it, the more our marriages and family life will thrive and prosper, and reflect the beauty and purity of Christ, and be a witness for Him.

    That book is amazing to read so many time you never say o my i do not read anymore what aver there it true , God show how to love your Life partner and care for her rest of your life that is there in that Song of Solomon ,
  • BSP
    The loving expressions found in this chapter are good examples of the beautiful and up building speech that should exist in a loving relationship.
  • Nghia huynh
    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.

    SOLOMON IS TALKING ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD IN HIS LIFE.
  • John
    Hi Julian. Read a little more carefully! It 's not King Solomon talking in verse 5, it 's the women who he loves.
  • J Alan for verse 5
    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.
  • Mary
    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.
  • William
    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.
  • Terri
    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.
  • Cc
    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.
  • Bobbie Zaremba
    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 for verse 5
    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 for verse 4
    Very interesting. But to comment on, I have to work more on it.
  • Mario
    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 for verse 6
    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.
    I think it was inspired by Queen Cleopatra of Egypt
  • Darrell Mitchell for verse 5
    Excellent, Excellent, nothing is more refreshing than the TRUTH!!!! THAT IS MY GOD!
  • Whitneywilson

  • Pastor luke
    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
