Song of Songs 7: 1 – 13

Save The First and Last Dance For Me

1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince’s daughter! The curves of your thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a skillful workman. 2 Your navel is a rounded goblet; It lacks no blended beverage. Your waist is a heap of wheat set about with lilies. 3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower, your eyes like the pools in Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looks toward Damascus. 5 Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel, and the hair of your head is like purple; A king is held captive by your tresses. 6 How fair and how pleasant you are, O love, with your delights! 7 This stature of yours is like a palm tree, and your breasts like its clusters. 8 I said, “I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of its branches.” Let now your breasts be like clusters of the vine, the fragrance of your breath like apples, 9 And the roof of your mouth like the best wine. The wine goes down smoothly for my beloved, moving gently the lips of sleepers. 10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me. 11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth to the field; Let us lodge in the villages. 12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; Let us see if the vine has budded, whether the grape blossoms are open, and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love. 13 The mandrakes give off a fragrance, and at our gates are pleasant fruits, all manner, new and old, which I have laid up for you, my beloved.

Ladies, here are a couple of questions for you. Do you like to dance? Okay, now what about dancing just for your husband, when no one else is around? Now here is a very difficult question to ask yourself, ‘If your husband was going to pick a woman that he desires sexual pleasure, would he choose you? You might be saying, ‘he better pick me.’ But in all sincerity, are you totally sold out in providing your man with everything he needs? A little spice just enlightens your relationship.

Chapter 7 is a very beautiful and sexual chapter. In order to please her husband, the Shulamite decided to do a dance before her man naked. Boy does this turn faces red with embarrassment. However, we will read that it has a tremendous impact on her man. So, let us see what happened.

1 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince’s daughter! The curves of your thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a skillful workman. 2 Your navel is a rounded goblet; It lacks no blended beverage. Your waist is a heap of wheat set about with lilies. 3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. 4 Your neck is like an ivory tower, your eyes like the pools in Heshbon by the gate of Bath Rabbim. Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looks toward Damascus. 5 Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel, and the hair of your head is like purple; A king is held captive by your tresses.

In these verses Solomon is going to describe ten of his wife’s physical characteristics that greatly arouse him. In chapter 4 on their wedding night Solomon mentioned 7 of her characteristics. Why the difference? I would guess that on his honeymoon he responded more quickly. Here he is taking in more of his wife’s total beauty and so describes it to her.

First of all he looked this time at her body from the feet up.. In chapter 4 on their wedding night he started at her head and worked downward in his complements. As she danced his eyes were drawn to her feet. Without a doubt she was not doing a tap dance in front of him. She was doing a seductive movement and this he appreciated and started commenting on it. She had attractive feet which were properly cared for and so he noticed.

His eyes move upwards and took in the movement of her legs. He now focused on how well built she was. What is nice about this is that he takes now the time to take in her full physical being. In most marriages probably the man has not done this. In the hurry of self-fulfillment the couple comes together and misses out on the full appreciation of each other.

Now we come to a interesting development. The next description says. “2 Your navel is a rounded goblet; It lacks no blended beverage.” Now you might say that this is referring to her belly button. Nope! I do not believe that his eyes went from her belly button back down. The term ‘goblet’ is better described as a bowl in the shape of a half-moon.
