• Song of Solomon ~ Chapter 2

    Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, Song of Solomon 2.16.
My Beloved is mine and I am His.
    So is my beloved among the sons.
    I sat down in his shade with great delight,
    And his fruit was sweet to my taste.
    Song of Solomon 2:3 NKJV

    Sustain me with cakes of raisins,
    Refresh me with apples,
    For I am lovesick.
    Song of Solomon 2:5 NKJV

    Both verses three and five refer to apples. In ancient Middle Eastern cultures apples were a euphemism for testicles, or the head of the penis, and even the man’s whole penis. In some contexts they can also mean the woman’s breasts. Delight in verse three can also be translated desire or great desire. Shadow or shade is a place of security or safety that may be found below or under something.

    She is where
    he can readily watch her
    and be both physically and visually
    stimulated by the sheer beauty of
    the moment and the intense sensations.

    He is standing and she is sitting, of kneeling, with great delight and a feeling of total safety, with her head near his penis and balls. She slowly takes his penis in her moist mouth and stimulates the head, then the shaft, and sucks on his balls. For her it was a sweet experience, especially as she notes his rising delight. She is where he can readily watch her and be both physically and visually stimulated by the sheer beauty of the moment and the intense sensations. To watch as his beloved’s soft mouth engulfs the head and then slides down the shaft of his erection is a pure pleasure to any man!

    Song of Solomon 2.4.
He brought me to the banqueting house,
    and his banner over me was love.

    He brought me to the banqueting house,
    And his banner over me was love.
    Song of Solomon 2:4 NKJV

    In the passion and heat of the moment the man takes his bride to a private place, a room set aside for feasting and drinking, where he makes his love for her very, very clear and they can have a full feast of sensuality. The word for banner means to raise, to flaunt, or be conspicuous. And the word for love means sexual desire. There is no shyness or awkwardness between them. His sexual excitement is rising like a banner of love on a flagpole, over her. His penis is fully erect and standing proud. She is delighted with the view.

    There is a chorus that was popular some years ago:

    I am my beloved's and he is mine,
    His banner over me is love,
    I am my beloved's and He is mine,
    his banner over me is love,
    I am my beloved's and he is mine
    his banner over me Is love,
    his banner over me is love.

    2. Be brought me to his banqueting table ) x 3
    His banner over me is love ) x 3
    His banner over me is love.

    Knowing what I know now, I confess I will have a new appreciation for that song next time it is sung. And it just may bring to mind pleasant images I would not have expected or entertained in the past.

    Let's look again at

    Sustain me with cakes of raisins,
    Refresh me with apples,
    For I am lovesick.
    Song of Solomon 2:5 NKJV

    Raisins and raisin cakes were considered an aphrodisiac, enhancing sexual vigor. They were baked in the shape of a woman. Apples, of course, were the man’s genitals. She was lovesick, overcome with sexual passion and longed for his touch, and to enjoy the full benefit of his sexual prowess, especially his erection and balls.

    His left hand is under my head,
    And his right hand embraces me.
    Song of Solomon 2:6 NKJV

    When they recline
    he holds her with one hand
    and fondles and caresses
    her body with the other,
    cupping her buttocks,
    touching her breasts,
    stoking her thighs,
    and stimulating her clitoris.

    What a delightful picture. When they recline he holds her with one hand and fondles and caressed her body with the other, cupping her buttocks, touching her breasts, stoking her thighs, and stimulating her vaginal lips and clitoris. This poem omits no detail in its full description of the delights of foreplay. Visual, manual, and oral foreplay are all describe in discrete but vivid detail.

    What is so beautiful about this verse is the way it plays with our imagination. We know what they are doing but we are not told exactly how he caressed her. This way each of us can fill in the blanks and in our mind’s eye his hands are touching where we would want to touch, he is fondling what we would want to fondle. This makes the sexuality of this poem very personal, and the lack of detail adds to rather than distracts from the arousal.

    I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
    By the gazelles or by the does of the field,
    Do not stir up nor awaken love
    Until it pleases.
    Song of Solomon 2:7 NKJV

    There is a time and a place for every good gift from God. Lovemaking is a powerful experience and it is not to be enjoyed illegitimately. It is the exclusive reserve of those who have committed themselves in marriage. This couple has been chaste before marriage. They can now feast at the table of sensual delights to their heart’s content. This is the day!

    Song of Solomon 2.9.
My beloved is like a gazelle
    or a young stag.

    The voice of my beloved!
    Behold, he comes
    Leaping upon the mountains,
    Skipping upon the hills.

    My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
    Behold, he stands behind our wall;
    He is looking through the windows,
    Gazing through the lattice.
    Song of Solomon 2:8 - 9 NKJV

    Springtime is when gazelles and stags are most virile. She is saying they are fully energized in their lovemaking. Their passion for each other is strong. But there is so much more here.

    In Hebrew roe, gazelle, and stag were all used the same way we use the word cock today, to mean penis. We use the slang word cock because a penis is said to resemble a bird, and in some cultures the rooster is a symbol of masculinity. If you look at a rooster its neck is long and slightly curved, like a penis, especially when erect. Some roosters have a ring or collar of feathers like pubic hair at the base of a penis. The large wattles can look like a man’s scrotum/bag and balls.

    I am delighted that the Bible uses the common less medical or formal word for the man’s penis. Cock is not a bad word, and here it is in the Hebrew equivalent in the Song of Songs. And since common words are here sanctified by their use in Scripture, I can feel free to use such words as cock and pussy in my writing.

    This verse can be interpreted that the man is partially concealed behind a wall, sexually excited was he watches her through a window. It can also mean I can see my beloved’s wonderful hard cock. It is concealed behind a wall (his clothes), and it is peeking out at me through an opening in the cloth. I caught a glimpse of his cock, and I am delighted in the view and that I excite him so much.

    Purple Fig.
Beautiful Picture of Female Sexual Anatomy.

    The fig tree puts forth her green figs,
    And the vines with the tender grapes
    Give a good smell.
    Rise up, my love, my fair one,
    And come away!
    Song of Solomon 2:13 NKJV

    In some Middle Eastern languages fig was used to speak of the vagina. Open up a purple fig and it is easy to see why. She says her vagina was ripe and ready. And a woman’s pussy is quite similar to the open flower of a vine in blossom, and she is giving forth an inviting fragrance. “Arise my darling”, may your manhood arise. Come along, enter in and enjoy!

    Catch us the foxes,
    The little foxes that spoil the vines,
    For our vines have tender grapes.
    Song of Solomon 2:15 NKJV

    Lily.
Beautiful Picture of Female Sexual Anatomy.

    Let us use our youthful sexual vigor to the fullest and drink deep of our pleasures. Let us fully enjoy our lovemaking while our bodies are young and age has not taken its toll.

    My beloved is mine, and I am his.
    He feeds his flock among the lilies.
    Song of Solomon 2:16 NKJV

    She says, “We are married now. I am yours, and you are mine. We can do as we please.” Corinthians tells us that married people belong to each other. The lily is a beautiful picture of the female sexual anatomy. As she lay back on the couch of love he caressed her body with his hands and kissed and licked his way down to the open lily of her sexuality.

    To feed means to grace, like a sheep grazing on grass. He is grazing through her wonderful bush of pubic hairs, orally stimulating her clitoris and labia. There is no rush for penetration and climax.

    Until the day breaks
    And the shadows flee away,
    Turn, my beloved,
    And be like a gazelle
    Or a young stag
    Upon the mountains of Bether.
    Song of Solomon 2:17 NKJV

    She wants them to
    pleasure each other
    all night long,
    until the morning light,
    “when the shadows flee away.”

    She wants them to pleasure each other all night long, until the morning light, “when the shadows flee away.”

    Bether means cleft or division. The “mountains of Bether” is a beautiful description of several parts of her body, especially her pussy. These are the mountains of Bether through which runs a pleasant moist valley. Another translation refers to “dark purple lilies.” Imagine these dark purple lilies located at the divided mountains; a sumptuous feast of female genital sensuality. Moffat translates this passage as "Play like a roe or a hart on my perfumed slopes."

    And the mountains are all the contours of her body, not just her pubic mound but also her breasts and buttocks. Not only is he is enjoying the cleft of her vulva but also the cleavage between her breasts, or maybe the crease of her bum cheeks. We already know that gazelle or stag means cock, and a young stag would be full of energy, bounding from one mountainous spot to another. She is asking him to use his cock to stimulate every area of her body, and let her use every area to pleasure him. Let me caress your cock between my breasts. Slide it between my bum cheeks. And please rub it through the folds of my vulva; use it to stimulate my clitoris, and then to penetrate my vagina. I want your marvelous hard cock all over me!
