Chapter 5:9-16   “ What is your beloved, more than another beloved, O fairest among women?   What is your beloved more than another beloved, that you so charge us?    My beloved is….”   It is a wonderful question placed before us by the Shulamite woman, one which we would do well to ponder concerning our “beloved” the “all together lovely one”.     How, or...

Song of Solomon 1:1-3

Song of Solomon. Chapter 1:1-3     In beginning a series of devotionals for the chapel web site my thoughts went immediately to Song of Solomon.    A few months ago I spoke on this wonderful portion of scripture to the men at the men’s retreat.   I have more recently been reviewing it expressions and enjoying some new insights.   I trust that the thoughts shared over the course of the next few weeks wi...

The Song of Songs

Many have applied this wonderful book of scripture to the church, many more to the soul, in relation to the Lord Jesus. Nor is it denied for a moment that there is a principle common to all born of God, the love to Him Who died for all that enter by faith into the love of God in Christ, the love which His known love creates, itself passing knowledge.

But is there the smallest reason to question that the book really contemplates, what the O. T. does every where, that object which is so precious to Messiah on earth, confirmed as it is by so many proofs in the Psalms (especially 45) and the Prophets (Isa. 62.)?1 Solomon accordingly was no unsuited vessel for the Spirit to employ in this respect. The N.T. treats Christ and the church as a secret kept hid in God till the apostle Paul was employed to make it known; so that the bearing is naturally on the mutual love of Messiah and His earthly bride, the daughter of Zion, and other such figurative terms. It seems difficult to men who look only at the past to realise what divine mercy is yet to effect in Jerusalem; when, instead of her old rebellion and treachery, the city of the Great King shall be the object of Jehovah’s delight, called by a new name, a crown of beauty and a royal diadem in His hand, and shall stand at His right hand as the queen in gold of Ophir, a praise in the earth.

Song of Solomon

 Introduction This Book takes up the Jew, or at least the remnant, in quite another aspect. It tells of the affections that the King can create in their heart, and by which He draws them to Himself. However strong these affections may be. they are not developed according to the position in which christian affections, properly so called, are formed. They differ in this respect. They do not possess the profound repose and sweetness of an affection that flows from a relationship already...
