In our last look in the Song of Songs we saw the two lovers going to the woman’s parent’s bedroom. Um….okay. Whatever excites you I guess. Let’s see what wonderful things we learn in this chapter.
“Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from the hills of Gilead.” – Song of Songs 4:1
I’m not sure that comparing someone’s hair to a flock of goats is a good pickup line.
“Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing.” – Song of Songs 4:2
You have sheep teeth, but wanna have sex? I doubt that’s going to work!
“Your neck is like the tower of David, built with courses of stone, on it hang a thousand shields, all of them shields of warriors.” – Song of Songs 4:4
Okay, this is just a weird description of someone’s neck.
“You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride;” – Song of Songs 4:9
Wait, you married your sister? Um.
“Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride; milk and honey are under your tongue.” – Song of Songs 4:11
Is it really milk under the tongue or is it something else taking on the color of milk? Hmmm.
“Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere.” – Song of Songs 4:16
Yeah, she’s not talking about an actual garden. LOL!
Another interesting chapter in the Song of Songs. Some really, really weird pickup lines that I can’t imagine having any chance of working. But since the man marries his sister in this chapter, maybe.
