Reading along with us in Song of Solomon? Here’s today’s reading:

Song of Solomon 4 (ESV)

Behold, you are beautiful, my love,
    behold, you are beautiful!
Your eyes are doves
    behind your veil.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
    leaping down the slopes of Gilead.
Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes
    that have come up from the washing,
all of which bear twins,
    and not one among them has lost its young.
Your lips are like a scarlet thread,
    and your mouth is lovely.
Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate
    behind your veil.
Your neck is like the tower of David,
    built in rows of stone;
on it hang a thousand shields,
    all of them shields of warriors.
Your two breasts are like two fawns,
    twins of a gazelle,
    that graze among the lilies.
Until the day breathes
    and the shadows flee,
I will go away to the mountain of myrrh
    and the hill of frankincense.
You are altogether beautiful, my love;
    there is no flaw in you..

  1. 9 You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride;
    you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
    with one jewel of your necklace.
    10 How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!
    How much better is your love than wine,
    and the fragrance of your oils than any spice!

  2. The bridegroom says her garden looks good.
    The bridegroom says her garden smells good.
    Her garden is enclosed.
    She invites the wind to open her garden that the bridegroom may enter.

  3. This is the longest section so far of the man, Solomon, praising his wife. Once again what was a compliment then probably would not be a good pick up line today. Unless of course you like your teeth referred to as a flock of sheep. But in the back of my mind I am wondering if Solomon is the best reference point for these words. Maybe these are the words expressed to his first wife, before he chose to multiply wives.
