1:4 – She has the inside track
Scripture Text: Song of Solomon 1:4
She wants to go to his house, his place.
It doesn’t seem like she is actually speaking to him.
This is more like a wish or something she would say to an audience if it was a play.
Friends speak up.
They aren’t getting his love, but wouldn’t mind if they were.
In verse 2 she said his love is delightful like she has experienced it.
The friends praise his love like someone who wouldn’t mind experiencing it.
It seems like he is actually there now.
He probably showed up and then the friends spoke.
She steps in to make sure he doesn’t lose focus on her by agreeing with them.
The girl and guy have something going –
Not what we would classify as a couple.
But they have certainly started considering the possibility.
The next passage is Song of Solomon 1:5-6.
