Song of Solomon, also called Canticle of Canticles, or Song of Songs, an Old Testament book that belongs to the third section of the biblical canon, known as the Ketuvim, or “Writings.” In the Hebrew Bible the Song of Solomon stands with Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther and with them makes up the Megillot, five scrolls that are read on various religious festivals of the Jewish year. The Song of Songs is a beautiful poem that portrays the mutual love of the Lord and his people. THE SONG OF SONGS The Song of Songs, or Song of Solomon, is one of the Wisdom Books of Hebrew Scripture, along with Psalms, Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. Song of Songs: The Book for Daughters was so very deep indeed. The Hebrew author of this book is a very intelligent man who breaks down each verse in this small book of the Bible into tiny pieces of a 5/5. The book puts forward a literal interpretation of the Song of Songs which the author sees as advancing a theology of human love. From the literary angle, particular importance is awarded to the structure of the poem, highlighting its strongly unitary character.

“ The Love of Loves in the Song of Songs is a book that every serious Bible student will want. A thoroughly researched, insightful, and challenging treatment of one of Scripture’s most engaging and relevant books, written by one of our generation’s finest pastoral theologians!”/5(17). The Song of Songs is a very beautiful book and one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible. The beauty of this theatrical song is greater than that of the words of Shakespeare. Some parents have jokingly commented about how they want their children to read the Bible except for the Song of Solomon. Like Psalms, Proverbs, and Lamentations, with which the Song of Songs is grouped in the Old Testament, the book is entirely poetical in form. Hebrew poetry is rhythmic in both sound and thought. In sound, through the regular pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables, the repetition of certain sounds, and the frequent use of alliteration. A disappointing Edwardian saga, Song of Songs had much unfulfilled potential. Lady Helena Girvan is a child of privilege in s England who becomes a war nurse after fiance departs for the battlefield, and the bulk of the novel is how her war experiences affect her life after the armistice/5.

“Song of Songs” is a part of the Wisdom books from the Old Testament. It was written by Solomon which is notable from the first verse. From the title we can see that the author considered it the best song because the title itself is a superlative. Song of Songs: A book of Tanach authored by Solomon, depicting the love between G-d and the Jewish people, employing the metaphor of the love between husband and many communities it is read on the holiday of Passover. The Song of Songs The song of songs, which is Shelomo’s. 1. May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, For your love is better than wine. a 2. To the scent of your good oils, “Turaq oil” b. is your name; 3Therefore the maidens love you. Draw me, after you let us run; The king has brought me to his chambers. Song of Songs The Song of Songs, sometimes called the Song of Solomon, is one of two books in the Bible that do not mention God.  The other is the book of Esther. King Solomon is generally acknowledged as the author, though some scholars say that is : Jack Zavada.
