Introduction to " The Song of Songs "


The Song of Songs:



A noble prophet, a great king,
Intelligent, farseeing, sagacious, and wise, Was enchanted by the Queen of Sheba
And maddened by her sweet love.
When she gives him her love,
he feels himself in highest heaven!
And when she turns him away distressed,
his life becomes a hell of hells!
Woman spared not even Moses,
the Bringer of the word.
Verily, from accursed Satan
The power of women is derived !

Who does not know the Song
The great king and prophet,
Solomon the wise,
Sang three thousand years ago?
It still resounds throughout the ages.
Its charming verses preserved
for generations to come.

In the song of songs a binding spell
Charms and captivates the heart,
with sweet expressions
Seducing those who know it,
Transporting them to the highest heavens
As long as they hear the melodious refrain of this unique chant.

He who reads the song of Songs
will surely come to know
that when the heart
of the prophet Solomon was touched
By the magic fingers of love,
his deep-springing passion burst forth.
He felt troubling pains
and pleasing sweet hopes.
So he resorted to his pen.
His overflowing emotion poured abundantly,
Revealing what was hidden
in the depths of his being.
In this eternal song,
he disclosed his secret of secrets.

Generations will pass away,
Peoples will disappear,
Civilizations will be obliterated,
Cities destroyed
-- all gone without a trace--
But the song of songs will live forever
Throughout the ages
So long as love
--so long as man and woman --
