1:15-17 – Guys have to Work Hard to Verbally Express Feelings
Scripture Text: Song of Solomon 1:15-17
He is feeling pretty good about this conversation so he starts by complimenting her eyes.
Remember her talking about “like a veiled woman”.
The eyes are something he can clearly see.
She responds about how handsome he is and then slides this one in:
‘Our bed is verdant’
They are still up in the hills under some trees.
Verdant is the soft green stuff that would grow there.
Her thoughts are showing how she is connecting things.
First it was a table – now the place they are sitting or reclining becomes ‘their’ bed.
He continues the game but look where he goes – the beams, the rafters.
He is talking the structural part.
The next passage is Song of Solomon 2:1-3.
