The Song of Songs

Song of Solomon 1‑8
The changing feelings of the spouse and the unchanging affections of the King. The spouse’s yearning affection for her King, with occasional glimpses and joy, to be realized in the anticipations of the godly remnant of Israel. Hos. 2:16, 19. Not established known relationship, as is true of the church now before the marriage.
The carnal minded see not the pure marital propriety as ordained by the Creator, whereas the spiritual minded reap sweet communion of heart with the coming Bridegroom.
Writer: Solomon, B.C. 1014.
