The Interpretations of the Song of Songs According to the Spin Doctors and Two Princes.

The Song of Songs teaches that the covenant of marriage was designed to be both rock solid in terms of commitment and white hot in terms of intimacy, and that this type of marriage can better endure hardship, resist temptation, and promote wholeness (Song 8:6–10). The clarity of the Song’s message is, however, often obscured by the way in which the the Song has set forth its instruction. In this paper, we will consider the method of the author’s instruction as a poetic wisdom composition in the tradition of Proverbs 5 and 7 with the appearance of two suitors, Solomon and the woman’s true love.
