SONG of SOLOMON Case study in PURITY & PASSION
The Song of Solomon is one of the most intriguing, loving, romantic and poetic books you will ever discover. How interesting that it is found in the Old Testament of the Bible. Did you know that some of the most passionate “Love Songs” dating back to ancient Hebrew times were written by King Solomon? It was originally called and still is at times known as “Song of Songs.” Here in lies a multiplicity of spiritual wisdom. Well, after all King Solomon had (700) seven hundred wives and (300) three hundred concubines. He should definitely know something about relationships. No doubt he has some interesting experiences. If you ever want to hear some passionate love songs or romantic poetry look no more; The Song of Solomon is the perfect venue.
Saintly men and women down through the years have discovered that the Song of Solomon brings forth a melodious mixture of pure delight and exquisite encouragement. It transparently expresses pure intimate marital love.
The Key verse: “I am my Lover’s and my Lover is mine; he browses among the lilies.”
God created marriage to be a safe loving relationship between one man and one woman. It is important to get to know the person you say you want to spend the rest of your life with. Each marriage is quite different. Your marriage will be whatever you both make it.
GOD, who is LOVE, is AMAZINGLY AWESOME!
If you want some “Sweet Some Things” to read to each other the Song of Solomon is the place to be. Here you will find a delightful poetic sermon that few dare to publicly proclaim. Now, whoever said that the Word could not be sung? This Book is indeed filled with melodic romantic prose and songs. In The Song of Solomon, King Solomon candidly speaks of love between a bridegroom and a bride. Many see the Song of Solomon as an allegory. The groom being God. The Bride is seen as Israel. Israel is the people of God. We too have been grafted into the family, and we too are now the people of God. What is most wonderful is; We are all His Church, which is known as the Bride of Christ! O how marvelous! Here in The Song of Solomon, the sanctity of marriage is beautifully affirmed as well as depicted in a brilliant illustration of the Love God has for His people.
Marriage between a man and a woman is honorable in the eyes of God. This is why it is called; "Holy Matrimony!"
The world in which we live is saturated by the news media with tales of sexual escapades, sexual freedom, extramarital affairs and homosexuality and alternative lifetyles. The sex lives, sexual abuse and secret rendezvous of the rich and famous celebrities as well as politicians are broadcasted daily.
Divorce is raging an ongoing battle against wholesome marriages. Any and just about everything goes… This is also attempting to take a stronghold on God’s Church. Many say you have to accept me as I am regardless of my sexual preferences because unconditional love says so? This is not really love at all. It is a mandate. Accepting you as a person and not supporting sin is love. You have a right to engage with whomever you so please in a relationship adult to adult. But there are consequences for your choices. Especially those that go against the WORD of GOD.
Know marriage between one man and one woman is the only sexual relationship that God sanctions. His Word is adamant here. He considers sex outside marriage sin. We are to love people not the sin. God does not sanction making anyone comfortable in sin. Sin is anything that separates us from God, God determines what is or is not sinful! If you have a problem with this, take it up with God.
Did you know that sex originated in the Bible?
Yes, sex was created by God! How did sex ever become such a dirty word? Man tends to always pervert what God has made for good. Man and Woman were created as one by God. He then made the woman separate from the man Adam. The world tries to redefine marriage to suit whomever… It has been twisted and turned upside down by too many. Sex for some is a no strings attached, or just a wild activity of lust void of commitment and a mere wild expressed bodily exercise. Being married is optional. In this case you are just giving away a part of you to an uncommitted partner... GOD says REPENT!
God's Church is also known as The Bride of Christ
Take some time and see what God has to say about sexual relationships. After all He created us. There is an innate natural desire to want to be close to your spouse that is instilled within us. This is a spawned reflection of the original oneness. No doubt God knows what works best for all of us. Take some time and read Leviticus and Deuteronomy in the Old Testament. They both candidly have a lot to say about proper and improper sexual relationships. There are also more principles in Romans 1 in the New Testament. God teaches us to be disciplined in all areas of our lives.
When love, trust, loyalty, intimacy and faithfulness are truly a part of your marriage you actually strengthen one another. Always keep in mind that marriage is the first institution that God created. God has never changed His original design! Marriage is sacred as well as honorable in the eyes of God. When you honor your marriage vows you honor GOD!
In the eyes of GOD the husband and wife belong to one another. You both have physical and spiritual rights to naturally cleave together. You DO NOT have to go outside of your marriage to have your natural desires fulfilled.
Think, pray and ponder on this;
GOD says in HIS WORD: "...NEVERTHELESS TO AVOID FORNICATION LET EVERY MAN HAVE HIS OWN WIFE, AND LET EVERY WOMAN HAVE HER OWN HUSBAND. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto her husband. The wife hath not power of her body, but the husband; and likewise, also the husband hath no power of his body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again that satan temp you not for..." I Corinthians 7 WOW!!!
Put on your spiritual cap here. Don't confuse sanctioned godly intimacy between Husband and Wife with carnality or sinful behavior...
Sexual intercourse was really meant to be a loving expression within Holy Matrimony. It is also a time for conception when the man implants a seed(s) into the woman... This is what is meant in the Word of God when it says; "being fruitful and multiplying... Remember; Marriage is sacred, and the marriage bed is undefiled. Within this beautiful union, man and woman celebrate the “two becoming one.” In a Holy Marriage Union, they are no longer two. The desire is strong to connect because when GOD originally made Adam, he made him and his helpmeet as one. She was made from His rib bone. It was Adam who actually later named her Eve. Marriage once again joins them together like it was originally intended. Again, God made man and woman as one. Always keep in mind God actually *took woman out of man. When you come together you once again reunite spiritually, physically emotionally and mentally. This is not a time to drain one another but to reinforce and refresh your marital commitment to one another. It is the closest form of healthy body language when expressed within marriage that one can physically and intimately express to another being; I Love you and I want to be with you!
The Word says, “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was *taken out of Man. Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become ONE flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.” Everything God made was good! It is when sex is practiced outside of the boundaries of marriage, not as He intended things begin to get quite complicated...
Having sex is not bad or dirty.
Sex was made for mutuality between husband and wife, each has a responsibility to one another. It is an occasion of privately meeting & fulfilling one another's physical sexual needs. This is between the two of you and God. This is not for others to determine! It reinforces your marital union and is also sanctioned by Almighty God. Celebrating love, experiencing one another in an intimate private and mutually pleasurable way. It is a marvelous blessing when the Lord allows the producing of children and a time of bonding together. As a matter of fact, children are a reward of the Lord! "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is His reward." Psalms 127." The birth of a child is a beautiful memorable legacy! It truly is an amazing everyday miracle! Marriage is also a spiritual and physical union sanctioned by GOD within the confines of HOLY MATRIMONY!
If you did not know it, there is a lot going on regarding sex in the Bible! The Word talks explicitly about the consequences of “sex outside of marriage.” The world says no problem? “Go for it.” Remember; “Think fire out of the fireplace!” It’s possible but spiritually it is terribly dangerous! The Song of Solomon is a poignant, emotional, moving poetic drama about love. The bridegroom openly and poignantly expresses his desire for love and physical fulfillment. In intimate details King Solomon bears his soul to his lover and she to him. Here is a wonderful illustration that is often overlooked. Her we see and experience the WORD of GOD putting sex and marriage in its proper place.
Is Song of Solomon just and allegory?
Although some say it is a story of God’s love for the children of Israel being expressed in an Allegory? Others say it is a story of married love. But really it is both. God speaks to us in many ways. He cannot be limited to our human limitations. He is Omnipotent! He can do whatever He pleases. God Loves us. He wants what is best for all of us. He does not want us to ever be ignorant in anyway. There is never any spiritual benefits in usingGOD'S WORD erroneously. We should always want to rightly divide the WORD of GOD.
It is so good to know that we are saved by HIS GRACE! As you read the WORD consider thinking upon this fact that; "GOD IS LOVE!" To really and truly love you must know God. You cannot turn back the hands of time. But you can go forward in the Lord. It is never too late to change, REPENT and start living His way. “All have sinned and fallen short of the GLORY of GOD!” Romans 3 Therefore we ALL need Christ Jesus as our Savior & Lord!
As you stroll through the corridors of “The Song of Solomon” remember GOD LOVES US/YOU. Ponder and meditate upon His Word. Seriously think about committing or recommitting to living your life His way? Begin building your marriage His way. Think about inviting Him into any of the messiness in and about your life. Allow or begin allowing the Lord to show you which way to go. Embrace a spiritual mentality to allow and let; "Jesus take the wheel" and guide you in the right direction. I assure you God will never lead you wrong...
Know this; not everyone desires a God centered marriage. It is your choice! Through the gift of His Holy Spirit God can show you how to bring about order, peace, patience, kindness, self-control, happiness, respect, strength, joy, even sexual fulfilment and so much more to your marriage as well as to the marriages of others. God helps us/you build healthy boundaries. This also allows balance because you don't take one another for granted. Know that in a Covenant marriage we/you also have His Blessings upon your marriage bed! WOE TO THOSE WHO INTRUDE!
Love physically expressed is powerful between a committed monogamous husband and wife! It can be a conscious time to solidify your marriage and honor your vows. This allows your inner beauty to glow and shine forth, sensitivity and sincerity encompasses mutual fulfillment. It is not a time for a pressured performance. But a time to uniquely express your love for one another. Together you both must seek to find your own unique way These are the precious moments you bond together in a healthy way. A hug here or there and tender quiet moments together are just as special.
Keep the passion & romance going by adding embers to the flame of your marriage!
Strive to sustain a quality marriage. Although it began at the altar it should continue on day by day. This helps to keep emotional walls from erecting that can become possible barriers in your marriage. Time is so precious. Tomorrow is not promised! Again, your marriage will be whatever both of you make it. So, you do not want to waste time in regrets. You want to make good use of it. Don't disrespect your spouse. Always speak the Truth in Love. Make sure you take time to nurture one another. The Song of Solomon encourages us to honor marriage.
If you have not developed love and trust, get busy
Let us sample a taste of what Solomon shares.
The book of The Song of Solomon is also known as the Canticles. Meaning that they are an assortment of lyrics. The songs here tell lovely descriptive stories.
For example, this is from The Beloved!
“Let him Kiss me with the Kisses of his mouth
For your love is more delightful than wine.
Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
Your name is like perfume poured out.
No wonder the maidens Love you!
Take me away with you, let us hurry!
Let the king bring me into his chambers..."
Wow! Too many simply glide over this part of the Word. Out of, fear, shame and or embarrassment. They often blush being a bit confused. They also have adopted a somewhat erroneous concept of how expressed love between husband and wife is lust. Rather than a sanctioned expression of love that desires to share deep passion with one another. God does not make junk! Think about when is the last time you read The Song of Solomon? How is your marriage going? Know the grass is not always greener on the other side of fence. So, water, fertilize and take care of your own grass. God who created us is the Giver and Sustainer of life. Tell me, who besides Him would know better what works? God has given us the Song of Solomon for a reason. It is yours to discover?
Solomon was the son of King David, he was chosen by God to build the Temple in Jerusalem. His Father David wanted to build the Temple for the Lord, but he was a man of war. God had bestowed upon Solomon an extraordinary gift of wisdom. He was personally selected by God to build the Temple. He has left a marvelous legacy. He also wrote over (3,000) three thousand proverbs and (1,000) one thousand songs! The Song of Solomon itself contains (7) seven poems. It gives a descriptive account about how they met. The engagement, the wedding and the procession, the actual wedding night as well as the marriage itself!
This refreshing romantic Book describes Solomon’s love for his bride in a way that captivates the refreshing and invigorating qualities that love brings forth! Although life can become very difficult at times. Marriage was meant to provide a committed partner to help, weather the storms of life with together. Your marriage should not consist of only major complaints, sorrows and problems. Nor should there ever be any physical, mental or emotional abuse. This is not what God intended. You can call on the Lord 24/7/365 days all year long... If your marriage needs to be refreshed, I pray this inspires you. Marriage should be a place where ultimate transparency, physical and mutually satisfying emotional intimacy between husband and wife can be shared. No trespassers welcomed! Coming together should be a time to lock all the trappings and disappointments of life out and invite in refreshing, excitement. Or simple moments of calm quiet nurturing. Always keeping in mind that God is omnipresent. God is real and when He says He is omniscient He is. There are never gaps or lapses in His infinite memory.
Together you want to celebrate and reinforce the cherished memories that brought you together! You also want to continue to build new marvelous memories.
We have much Freedom in GOD
This might make you blush a bit. But it will also give you a deeper understanding of GOD being omnipresent. Once you get to really know God you will think differently. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty..." Never forget who created you. He really does want to be a part of every area of our lives. He wants you both as husband and wife to have transparent intimacy. Marriage is the ultimate union of "two becoming one" in the physical sense. Here only is it honorable and sanctioned by God. Christ Jesus healed the enmity that came about due to the sin of Adam and Eve...Take note of the detailed description of the body of the man and the woman. The point is there was no shame ever intended to ever be between a husband and wife. It is not for others to intrude upon...
Marriage is the ultimate covenant relationship between husband & wife & God! Solomon really breaks it all down to the finest intimate level of detail. Privacy is fleeting to some in this day and age. Some will do just about anything. Nothing is no longer sacred to many...
This is what The Song of Solomon says about him; "... His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of water, washed with milk, and fitly set. His cheeks are as a bed of spices, and as sweet flowers; his lips are like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh. His hands are as gold rings, set with beryl; his belly is as a bright ivory overlaid with sapphires. His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold; his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. His mouth is most sweet; yea he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend..."
This is what The Song of Solomon says about her: “How beautiful are your sandaled feet, O princes daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman’s hands. Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies. Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are the pools of Hesborn by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon looking towards Damascus. Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses. How beautiful you are and how pleasing. O Love with your delights! Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit …”
Growing and maturing in your marriage
As you mature your marriage should as well. It should age gracefully like a fine antique. Have you noticed how they become more cherished and valuable with age. You both should treat one another with love and tenderness. Cultures vary in their perceptions of lovemaking. There are some cultures that teach and encourage enhancing the physical lovemaking within marriage. There is a freedom that emerges when the couple together make their physical intimacy a priority. You become like an "Epoxy" glue. Once the two components come together it is virtually impossible to separate! You both are content whether together or apart because you know you are Spiritually ONE! You also know that GOD is always with you! Love between a man and woman is priceless. Remember “GOD IS LOVE” and true love was meant to last through eternity! It is not the same as what I call “Intoxicating Affections” that only mimic true love they do not last; but at some point this will also leave a residue of resentment!
Marriage is only for this side of Heaven
Did you know that there is actually no marrying in Heaven? Marriage is only for this side of Heaven. How interesting! "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven." Matthew 22. So, make a sincere attempt to get it right. The key components of a great marriage is love, trust, mutual respect, loyalty, understanding, empathy, compassion, transparency, devotion and commitment. When you say; “I DO!” Mean it!
Remember, loving committed marriages reflect God not domination and control! Your marriage should be a reflection of “How much you Love the Lord!” Remember no longer two; but ONE. “What GOD has joined together let not man put asunder!” I hope you both are blessed, inspired, enlightened, encouraged and actually together enjoy “The SONG of SOLOMON” & your marriage!!!

Thank you for this Hub! It was a great ministry to my heart, and I really needed to be reminded of God's plan for sex INSIDE the boundaries of marriage. :D
Elder DeBorrah K Ogans (author) on June 05, 2010:
r-o-y, The Word of God is where on learns about Solomon and His life. Solomon all throughout the Proverbs shares His God given wisdom. It is here he shares the benefits of applying the Word of God as well as the folly of doing otherwise...
The Bible teaches us that Solomon was the wisest and richest man that ever lived. His words of wisdom continue to teach us as he candidly shares the benefits as well as the pitfalls of not obeying the Lord….
The Bible is the inspired Word of God! The Song of Solomon is inclusive of that Word. It is about love, commitment and devotion which is the key to any great relationship. Our marriages should be reflective of the poetic love shared in this marvelous book… It is in this context I have shared this wonderful poetic book! I invite you to read my ongoing series of the Proverbs as well... Thank you for stopping by to share, In His Love, Peace & Blessings!
r-o-y on June 04, 2010:
I read your article on King Solomon and love,I would caution to be careful how you use the word of God in regards to Solomon's love life.The very women he was making love to was an abomination before the God of The bible you been qouting.For making love to these women, and building temples, and worshiping these other gods, God was angry and ripped the kingdom from him. the wise lover became one of the most follish man to walk the earth. Read(1Kings 11:1)

Elder DeBorrah K Ogans (author) on March 10, 2010:
Vickie Sloderbeck, The Song of Solomon is a wonderful book! It really is quite dimensional. You are so right a child can read it! Yet when one goes deeper there is an "erotic" intimacy that can enhance a couples physical relationship. God really is "pro sex" between husband & wife...
Thank you for sharing and let's keep proclaiming the beauty of Marriage God's way! Blessings!
Vickie Sloderbeck from south of Atlanta on March 10, 2010:
DeBorrah, your hub is also about one of my favorite subjects--God's design for sex in marriage.
Having taught classes at church with my husband for several years about this book in Scripture, I will tell you that it is a book cloaked in poetry so that a little child can pick up a Bible, read from its pages, and not be harmed by the words found there. However, it does take some study to find out what the words literally mean. They are incredibly erotic! And it's always fun to watch the lightbulbs go off for married couples as they discover just how "pro sex" God really is!
I applaud your efforts in proclaiming God's gift of sex for marriage and it's good to meet a fellow cheerleader.
Elder DeBorrah K Ogans (author) on January 09, 2010:
Nobody, I so agree it is such a WONDERFUL read! The enemy always seeks to pervert, divide and separate, this is how he gets a stronghold... God's Blessing and prayer in the bedroom are Key to intimate, mutually satisfying and fulfilling expressive love making... Bob, The marriage bed is undefiled "Acknowledge Him in ALL thy ways and HE WILL direct your path..." Much Love & Blessings!
Robert E Smith from Rochester, New York on January 09, 2010:
The Song Of Solomon should be read by every couple married or unmarried to see the depth of love that is marriage. The first thing the enemy did was to separate spirituality from marriage and then separate love from sex. Men and women even in the church think that pornography practiced alone as well as masturbation does not effect the marriage but it does. The physical love element in marriage is holy and prayer and blessing are required in the bedroom. Another great hub from a great teacher. Love ya DeB
Elder DeBorrah K Ogans (author) on January 05, 2010:
Lady E, I am glad that you enjoyed this... It really is such a wonderful Book! It just further demonstrates the depth of the many fascinating facets of life that are in the Bible!
Thank You! Yes, this is the love of my life! You are so observant, although it is a couple of years ago... Thank you for sharing as always its a pleasure, Much love & Blessings!
Elena from London, UK on January 05, 2010:
This is lovely and I like the way you explained the Book of Solomon. Some people just pick out some "love verses" from Solomon and start debating why such verses are in the HOLY Bible. lol.
Nice pics too. I think I the one below is probably you. It's a beautiful photo.
Best Wishes. :)

"The key components of a great marriage is love, trust, mutual respect, understanding, devotion and commitment. When you say “I DO!” Remember, Loving committed marriages reflect God not domination and control! Your marriage should be a reflection of “How much you Love the Lord!” Remember no longer two but ONE. “What GOD has joined together let not man put asunder!” I hope you enjoy “THE SONG OF SOLOMON”!!!"
I do enjoy The Song Of Solomon. I love its poetry, lyrical expressions, and celebration of God's most precious gift to humanity, LOVE. Your synopsis, in combination with your wonderful creative writing ability, gives tribute to God's true love for us and to the ardent and unjaded eroticism of human love sanctified by union.
Thank you for sharing!!
Philipo from Nigeria on December 31, 2009:
Thank you for sharing. Indeed, the book of Solomon remains the greatest book in the old testament. I love it, the songs, the love songs. Solomon was a great man. When he had opportunity of requesting for money and riches, he requested for wisdom; knowing fully well that wisdom brings riches and all that come with it. Nice hub. Thanks for sharing and remain blessed with wisdom.
