Song of Solomon: Beauty 2 May 2020

The lover is described. Actually ... with most 'interpretations' this is a description of what God looks like.
Use your imagination and please forgive me my terrible picture.
Imagine what God looks like. We have some images of Jesus. We are made in the image of God. Isn't that awesome!

Sol 5:10-15

My love is fresh and ruddy, to be known among ten thousand.
11 His head is golden, purest gold,
his locks are palm fronds and black as the raven.
12 His eyes are like doves beside the water-courses,
bathing themselves in milk, perching on a fountain-rim.
13 His cheeks are beds of spices, banks sweetly scented.
His lips are lilies, distilling pure myrrh.
14 His hands are golden, rounded,
set with jewels of Tarshish.
His belly a block of ivory covered with sapphires.
15 His legs are alabaster columns set in sockets of pure gold.
His appearance is that of Lebanon,
unrivalled as the cedars.
