Chapter 4 is mainly comprised of the man’s description of the beauty of his woman. He starts at the top and enjoys himself all the way down.
4:1-3 How beautiful you are, my darling, how beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves behind your veil; your hair is like a flock of goats that have descended from Mount Gilead. Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes which have come up from their washing, all of which bear twins, and not one among them has lost her young. Your lips are like a scarlet thread, and your mouth is lovely. Your temples are like a slice of a pomegranate behind your veil.
I enjoy lingerie,
and I love sexy panties,
but for me the sexiest thing
a woman can wear
is a beautiful welcoming smile..
One note: temples are better translated the side of the face. He is admiring her cheeks and comparing them to the rosy, roundness of pomegranate halves. One of the most beautiful and sexually stimulating things for a man in the throes of romantic love is his beloved’s lovely face. I enjoy lingerie, and I love sexy panties, but for me the sexiest thing a woman can wear is a beautiful welcoming smile. A cheerful heart and pleasant disposition can make many a plain woman stunningly beautiful.
The more sexually excited she becomes the more her beauty if revealed. And a woman at the moment of climax is ravishingly beautiful. The next time you are making love to your wife and she is in the throes of orgasm, look at her face and be enthralled by her beauty!
4:4 Your neck is like the tower of David, built with rows of stones on which are hung a thousand shields, all the round shields of the mighty men.
She has a very upright and queenly carriage, and wears "shields" meaning layered coins or ornaments of precious metal that adorned her neck as she walked in public. The coins or ornaments were her dowry. A thousand shields indicated she was of great worth and value to him.
4:5 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle which feed among the lilies.
This is the dorcus gazelle, not the same animal as mentioned earlier. It is small, about two feet high, cute, and a marvel of lightness, beauty, and grace. It springs gracefully and bounces lightly when it moves. It has gentle beautiful eyes. Everything about this animal made you want to reach out and pet it. It was also a delicacy served at Solomon’s table.
This perfectly describes
young firm breasts,
so delightful to look at,
wonderful to caress,
as the bride walks.
This perfectly describes young firm breasts, so delightful to look at, wonderful to caress, moving sensuously as the bride walks. They are a feast for the eyes, and delight to the touch.
4:6 Until the cool of the day when the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense.
The hill of frankincense is the woman pubic mound, lovely to the eyes and sweet-smelling. Myrrh refers to her fragrant vaginal fluids.
4:10 How beautiful is your [expressions of love] love, my [spiritual] sister, my bride! How much better is your [expressions of love] love than wine, and the fragrance of your oils than all kinds of spices!
All of her natural fragrances are sweet to him. Wine was a symbol of exquisite pleasure.
4:11 Your lips, my bride, drip honey; honey and milk are under your tongue, and the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
Deep passionate kissing, exploring even beneath her tongue. The experience of passionately kissing his beloved was sweet and nourishment to his heart. It is wonderful to kiss deeply at the beginning of lovemaking, in the middle, and toward the orgasmic end.
4:12 A garden locked is my sister, my bride, a rock garden locked, a spring sealed up.
Garden refers to her vagina. It is sealed. She is a virgin and her garden is reserved only for her beloved. The moisture there is for only him to enjoy. Calling it a garden means it is as beautiful to behold as a luxurious cultivated Middle Eastern garden. During their lovemaking, as he explored every inch of her body he is delighted when he comes to her pubic hair, her secret place, her pussy, waiting for his touch, his tongue, and his hard cock. The Interpreter’s Bible tells us that in Oriental imagery "the wife is described in terms of a fountain, and sexual enjoyment in terms of drinking water." Water is scarce in the Middle East and those who owned fountains would seal them with clay which would dry and harden in the sun. This would protect them from impurity, and no one could get water out except for the owner. Sexual purity is to be protected from contamination and only the groom is to break the seal of virginity.
4:13 - 14 Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates with choice fruits, henna with nard plants, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with all the trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes, along with all the finest spices.
He loves touching and
caressing her body;
she is a delicious source
of sexual pleasure to him
– of fruit for him to eat.
The shoots and plants probably refer to pubic hair, and pomegranates here speak of her pussy or just to her femininity. He loves the fragrance her body makes, speaking of spikenard – the hairy plant that must be rubbed in order for its fragrance to be released. He loves touching and caressing her body; she is a delicious source of sexual pleasure to him – of fruit for him to eat. He is in a paradise when he is with her.
4:15 You are a garden spring, a well of fresh water, and streams flowing from Lebanon.
Abundant moisture lubricates her vagina. Her body is well prepared for the long-awaited consummation.
4:16 The woman says, Awake, O north wind, and come, wind of the south; make my garden breathe out fragrance, let its spices be wafted abroad.
She wants him close, and wants his breath on her pussy, stimulating and arousing her, causing her fragrance to fill the air. She wants the north wind to bring clear weather and blow away the clouds. She then wants the south wind to bring warmth and moisture. This combination would cause a garden to grow lush and plentiful. Please, my spouse, stimulate my body and cause my passion to grow.
4:16 May my beloved come into his garden and eat its choice fruits!
My passion has grown and I want you, now! You have kissed, you have caressed, you have licked, I am ready; come into my vagina, it is your garden of sensual pleasure and release. The same word is used in Genesis 16:2 (NASB) So Sarai said to Abram, “Now behold, the Lord has prevented me from bearing children. Please go in to my maid; perhaps I will obtain children through her.” And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.
