Song of Songs – Chapter 7: Untitled

Today we have Song of Songs 7.  This is the second to last chapter in this book which is all about sex between a man and a woman.

“Your breasts are like two fawns, like twin fawns of a gazelle.” – Song of Songs 7:3

Um…okay.  I guess this is better than the comparison to goats we read about in previous chapters in this book.

“Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit.” – Song of Songs 7:7

Now the breasts are compared to clusters of fruit.  First gazelle and now fruit.  Interesting comparison switch in just four verses.

“May your breasts be like clusters of grapes on the vine,” – Song of Songs 7:8

Not just any fruit, but the breasts are like clusters of grapes!

“May the wine go straight to my beloved, flowing gently over lips and teeth.” – Song of Songs 7:9

Yes, drink the wine to loosen up so you are more likely to be seduced.  To be clear, this is the woman saying this to the man.

“Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom—there I will give you my love.” – Song of Songs 7:12

As we learned in the last chapters, the vines and pomegranates mentioned in this verse are references to the human body.

Yep…more sex references.  In this chapter parts of the human body are compared to animals and fruits.  Not the best pickup lines in the world.  Use them at your own risk!!!
