Song of Solomon 4:7 & meaning...


are all beautiful, my love. There is no spot in you.

Song of Solomon 4:7


Song of Solomon 4 [5.] Your two breasts are like two fawns

    that are twins of a roe,

    which feed among the lilies.

Until the day is cool, and the shadows flee away,

    I will go to the mountain of myrrh,

    to the hill of frankincense.

You are all beautiful, my love.

    There is no spot in you.

Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,

    with me from Lebanon.

    Look from the top of Amana,

    from the top of Senir and Hermon,

    from the lions’ dens,

    from the mountains of the leopards.

You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride.

    You have ravished my heart with one of your eyes,

    with one chain of your neck.


In this verse, the bridegroom expresses his adoration and admiration for his beloved bride. He affirms her beauty and perfection in his eyes, declaring that she is without blemish or imperfection.

The imagery used here is rich with symbolism, portraying the depth of love and intimacy between the bride and groom. The bridegroom's declaration of his beloved's beauty reflects not only her physical appearance but also her inner qualities and character. He sees her as flawless and faultless, cherishing her uniqueness and individuality.

The phrase "You are all beautiful, my love" emphasizes the bridegroom's deep affection and admiration for his beloved. He sees her as supremely beautiful and captivating, finding delight in her presence and companionship.

The declaration "There is no spot in you" further underscores the bridegroom's perception of his beloved's perfection. He views her as without fault or flaw, highlighting her purity and innocence.

In the broader context of the Song of Solomon, this verse is part of a larger poetic dialogue between the bride and groom, celebrating the beauty and intimacy of their love relationship. The Song of Solomon is often interpreted allegorically as a depiction of the relationship between Christ and His church, with the bridegroom representing Christ and the bride representing the church.

From this perspective, Song of Solomon 4:7 can be seen as a reflection of Christ's love for His people. Christ sees His bride, the church, as beautiful and without blemish, having been cleansed and purified by His sacrificial love. Ephesians 5:25-27 speaks to this theme, stating:

"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without defect."

In conclusion, Song of Solomon 4:7 is a beautiful expression of love and admiration between a bride and groom, reflecting the depth of their intimacy and affection. It also serves as a poignant reminder of Christ's love for His people, seeing them as beautiful and without blemish through His redemptive work. As we reflect on this verse, may it inspire us to cherish the beauty of love and to embrace the depth of Christ's love for us.
