A Survey of Song of Solomon
This lyric poem in dialogue has been the victim of some of the most ingenious interpretations imaginable. It is probable that Solomon would be stunned to hear some of them himself! It seems best that we allow Solomon's song simply to say what it says rather than attempting to force upon these eight chapters some strange, fanciful, or allegorical twist. It is an intimate, tender, romantic expression of physical love between a man and a woman—first, prior to their marriage . . . then, after the wedding. If anything other than this is to be safely seen here, it's an analogy related to Christ and His devoted love for His bride, the church.
