1:10-11 – Guys Like To Do Something To Show That They Care
Scripture Text: Song of Solomon 1:10-11
He is leading up to something.
First the horses would have harnesses with jewels on them.
At least the favorite of Solomon’s 14,000 horses would wear harnesses that were real fancy.
So he compliments her saying her cheeks are beautiful with earrings.
I need some help here.
Are these earrings in her ears?
Or are these jewels strung along her cheeks?
I don’t know but the translations don’t seem to match.
Earrings on her cheeks??
He goes on to talk about strings of jewels around her neck
Then he gets to his point.
We will make you earrings of gold, studded with silver.
I think he used ‘we’ like I used it when I asked a jeweler to make a necklace that was a single rose.
‘We’ made it. I had the idea. The jeweler did all the skilled work.
So between us ‘we’ made it.
Guys like to ‘do something for the girl’ to ‘show that they care about her’
The next passage is Song of Solomon 1:12-14.
