A Juicy Love Story Teaching #2 in series: I. Everybody Loves a Love Story II. The Song of Songs A. The Courtship (Song of Songs 1:1 – 3:5) 1. A bold introduction 1:1

Solomon’s Song of Songs. delightful than wine. 2.

2Let

him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more

A pleasing name

1:3

Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! 3.

The delight factor

2:1

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. 2 Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens.

B. The Wedding (Song of Songs 3:5 – 4) 3:6

Who is this coming up from the desert like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and

incense made from all the spices of the merchant? 7 Look! It is Solomon’s carriage, escorted by sixty warriors, the noblest of Israel. 4:1

How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes behind your veil are

doves. Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from Mount Gilead. 2 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone. 3Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon; your mouth is lovely. Your temples behind your veil are like the halves of a pomegranate. 4Your neck is like the tower of David, built with elegance; on it hang a thousand shields, all of them shields of warriors. 5 Your two breasts are like two fawns . . . 8:7 (CPDV) For love is strong, like death, and envy is enduring, like hell: their lamps are made of fire and flames.

C. The Marriage (Song of Songs 5-8) 5:2I

slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My lover is knocking: “Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my flawless one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night.” 3I have taken off my robe—must I put it on again? I have washed my feet— must I soil them again? 5:8-9

O daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you—if you find my lover, what will you tell him?

Tell him I am faint with love. 9How is your beloved better than others, most beautiful of women? How is your beloved better than others, that you charge us so? 8:6-7

Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as

death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. 7 Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.
