PA263 Song of Solomon 4:1-6:3 mp3

In this message, the country girl taken by force by Solomon back to Jerusalem in hopes that he can marry her has an interview in Jerusalem with her shepherd betrothed. He praises her for her faithfulness and constancy. Then, they concoct a desperate plan to try to free her from Solomon’s clutches. The girl recalls a dream to her Jerusalem maids wherein her love came to her and she was too tired to receive him, only later with horror to realize what she had done. These women doubt that her shepherd love can really be so great, and she, provoked, pours out praise upon him. They claim to want to see this one she has described so wonderfully, but she doubts their motives and speaks only vaguely of his location.
