Song of Solomon ~ Chapter 6
Where has your beloved gone,
O fairest among women?
Where has your beloved turned aside,
That we may seek him with you?
My beloved has gone to his garden,
To the beds of spices,
To feed his flock in the gardens,
And to gather lilies.
I am my beloved’s,
And my beloved is mine.
He feeds his flock among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 6:1 - 3 NKJV
While they are together in the Garden of Love they revel in each other’s physicality. Once again he has kissed and caressed his way down her body, past her breasts and her belly to the focal point of her pleasure, her genital garden of great delight. Here he uses all at his disposal to stimulate. He “grazes among the lilies”, orally stimulating her most sensitive place.
Solomon and His Bride Delight in Each Other
O my love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah,
Lovely as Jerusalem,
Awesome as an army with banners!
Turn your eyes away from me,
For they have overcome me.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
Going down from Gilead.
Your teeth are like a flock of sheep
Which have come up from the washing;
Every one bears twins,
And none is barren among them.
Like a piece of pomegranate
Are your temples behind your veil.
There are sixty queens
And eighty concubines,
And virgins without number.
My dove, my perfect one,
Is the only one,
The only one of her mother,
The favorite of the one who bore her.
The daughters saw her
And called her blessed,
The queens and the concubines,
And they praised her.
Who is she who looks forth as the morning,
Fair as the moon,
Clear as the sun,
Awesome as an army with banners?
Song of Solomon 6:4 - 10 NKJV
He is lovesick and her beauty has consumed him. Those who would criticize the pure physical delight of enjoying our spouse’s body fail to understand the holiness of strong sexual desire in the sacrament of matrimony.
I went down to the garden of nuts
To see the verdure of the valley,
To see whether the vine had budded
And the pomegranates had bloomed.
Before I was even aware,
My soul had made me
As the chariots of my noble people.
Song of Solomon 6:11 - 12 NKJV
She wants to know if he is ready for their time of sexual celebration.
Return, return, O Shulamite;
Return, return, that we may look upon you!
What would you see in the Shulamite—
As it were, the dance of the two camps?
Song of Solomon 6:13 NKJV
Schulmmite is a female form of Solomon and in calling her that he indicates she is his other half, the one without whom he is incomplete.
