Scripture Text: Song of Solomon 2:16 – 17 (22a, page 179)
Verses 16 – 17
My beloved is mine, and I am his
he who grazes among the lotus flowers.
When the day breathes and the shadows flee, turn;
be like my beloved a gazelle or a young stag on the divided mountains.
Below are some selections from other versions.
mountains of Bether.KJV
like a roe or a young hart Upon the mountains of Bether. ASV
on the rocky hills. NIRV
When the day breathes and the shadows flee GLK
See what you think on this. I think she is referring to her breasts as the hills or mountains. The day in verse 17 might refer to a future wedding day. The gazelle is very light footed and climbs without disturbing rocks or plants or dirt. The young stag powers its way up the mountain. It will knock loose dirt and rocks and each step isn’t solid. It powers ahead up the mountain. If she is referring to her breasts she is indicating that she likes a light touch at times and a more aggressive approach at other times.
If this isn’t what it refers to, I can tell you that girls like contact with their breast to vary according to their mood. And the mood can change very quickly. Guys, there is no magic formula. They aren’t like magic lanterns — rubbing on a breast doesn’t make her legs automatically spread.
The main point here is that she didn’t get turned off because he said no, or wait. Guys if you have the power and the patience to wait you won’t lose a good women because of that. You might get rid of a few that wanted to make use of your body. You might get rid of a few that wanted to use sex to control you. But the kind of women that is described in Song of Solomon won’t leave because you can wait.
