    Song Of Songs

    • 512 Words
    • 3 Pages

    One of the more neglected parts of the Bible is the Song of Songs (also called the Song of Solomon). Although it is easily found, right in the middle of the Bible, it is a book that is rarely read and hardly known; usually it is known to Muslims through just one verse, which we will come to later. Such neglect does not befit any of God's word, because as it says elsewhere in the Bible: “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16 The expression "Song of Songs" is a Hebrew idiom for "the best song". Whilst Solomon is named in this first verse, it is debatable whether this means that the song was written by him, for him, or, as is more likely, about him.…

    The Song of Songs was first a carefully crafted collection of secular love poems celebrating the physical, sexual, and erotic love between man and woman. Later, Jewish and Christian custom transformed it into a beautiful manuscript of religious belief. This alteration was deemed necessary once the Song became part of the Bible because God is not cited in the book at all. In the often-quoted passage Song 8:6, one expression, in particular, can be translated as a reference to God or not: The last…

    In “Song of Soloman”, Morrison tells a remarkable story reflecting the absence of a father figure in African American homes. Instead of looking at the absence of the black man in a blackm family, she depicts this men not as traitors or deserters, but as strong, exploratory spirits providing a solid foundation for their children, even if his absence affects them. Morrison introduces the imagery of flight, using this to capture a vast foreshadowing to the family’s changing aspects of “Song of…

Whether that experience is heartbreak or a new relationship, even something that happened in the past. They put their feelings and experiences into the lyrics of their song. Some lyrics may have multiple meanings. In Kelly Clarksons song “Piece by Piece” she sings about the pain she felt toward her father leaving when she was young…

    Some say music is the key to the soul, and the way music is turning in recent years many believe it is making a turn for the worse. Ten years ago with songs like, “We belong together” by Mariah Carey and “Let me love you” by Mario showed more thought and substance when it came to the concept of love and intimacy. The songs created in past years showed more conservation and used clever metaphors to insinuate sexual relations, rather than blatantly stating it. In more recent years, with songs like…

    The song that I chose was “Sea” by BTS. The song holds a lot of meaning, to not just me, but to a lot of people worldwide.

    we happen to be going through at the time we hear a specific song? For me most of these questions apply to specific times in my life where music helped me out of pain, stress, loss and even despair.
