It’s one of the toughest books in the Bible to decipher and commentate upon due to its poetic form filled with symbolism and also the subject matter of love, romance and sex. Yes, sex is on almost every other stanza of the love poem, but it is written in a subtle and nuanced manner, which is highly refined and polite even in its most sensual and erotic moments. That’s the beauty of the Song of Songs. No wonder it is the Song of Songs as it was Solomon’s best and favourite song out of 1,005 songs which he wrote. As a lover, there is no one like King Solomon with his harem of 1,000 women plus one, his Shulamite lover who was the love of his life.
