Random Verse: Song of Songs 2:9

Song of Songs 2:9 (ESV)

My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag,
Behold, there he stands behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
looking through the lattice.

Hmm...apparently, her beloved is like a peeping tom.

The history of interpretation of the Song of Songs is fascinating. I'd like to do more study of Targum Song of Songs and Song of Songs Rabbah. Many interpreters have gone to great lengths to find some relevant spiritual application for Songs.
