Song of Solomon 5

1 I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.

I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?

My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.

I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.

I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I am sick of love.

What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?

10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

11 His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.

12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.

13 His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.

14 His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.

15 His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

  1. (my phone needs to b charged i cant where I am. Thank u Jesus)

    Vs 1 talks about all these different spices given.
    It reminds me of all the times the Lord has blessed me with his gifts for his glory’s sake.
    And how much he loves me he truly is my BELOVED.
    THANK YOU MY SAVIOR YOU ARE GOOD NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO OR NOT DO~I love you Jesus.

  2. ILove to read the Word

    “Don’t Sleep Through Your Time of Visitation” 

    2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

    The husband was knocking but his bride was asleep. She missed her time of visitation.

    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20 KJV)

    And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. (Luke 19:44 KJV)

    Lets wake out of sleep and pray that we enter not into temptation, let Jesus in today. 

  3. The Word of God

    16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

    The bible tells us out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. As we read the holy writ of almighty God we come face to face with his heart. His words are health, nourishment, and creative. They are also firm, righteous, and sovereign. He reigns supreme with love, but will not compromise his character.

    The way we know we are his is that his words are coming out of our mouth. When we speak his word we exercise the same power, and authority he has. Not because of who we are, but because of who he is.

    His word is forever settled in heaven, and cannot be changed.

  4. 6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

    NOW!!

    We must make sure we answer when He knocks; His timing is perfect, we cannot wait until it is convenient for us or the moment will have passed and we will have missed our chance for a visit from the King!

    Isaiah 55:6 KJV
    6. Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

  5. In this chapter i believe God is trying to get the attention of his church. Thru this revival God has poured out his spirit to us to come eat and drink of the spiritual rim. If you didn’t get delivered of anything or get anything out of the revival you might need a check up from the neck up. We need to notice when we are getting that spiritual slumber and distempers. Jesus knocks on our hearts with his word and spirit. When we are unmindful of God he is still thinking about us. You have heard as well as I have that when we sin against God we are hanging him on the cross again. God help me to be the child of God you desire and to be a witness for your kingdom.

  6. THE VALUE OF THE WHOLE BODY

    9 What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?

    Thie chapter and the answer to the question in verse 9 give us understanding of the value of each member of the body of Christ. The descriptive value placed on each member of the body should serve as an example of the value JESUS places on the Body of Christ (HIS Church).

    Thank you JESUS for your LOVE to your Church.

  7. 2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

    The Lord is calling us-the Church-his beloved and undefiled, to hear his voice. He has a plan for this region of Ft. Worth-can we hear him? This is the time for us to ‘be THE church’ and take this city for his kingdom…NOW. This IS the time of our visitation and we CAN reach the lost. Each one reach one is our part. Unity is essential-following Pastor’s vision & direction as one. God is up to something!!!

  8. This chapter illustrates open. The heart needs to be accessible, to that which is good. While one must be wise who one opens ones heart to, one must open ones heart to Jesus (God); “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  9. Stop Making Excuses… Before It’s to Late!

    I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night. I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them? (Song of Solomon 5:2, 3 KJV)

    How many times does The Lord has to speak directly to you before you can move and respond to His Word, To His Calling upon your Life? You’re in danger and you don’t see because you’re so consumed with your selfishness, you’re blinded by bitterness and anger! Oh Lord have mercy!! Wake up, get out of bed, and answer to the call, open the door.
    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20 KJV)

  10. Don’t delay in answering your call from Lord, when you knock at the door comes, we must answer it at once.

  11. 6 I opened to my lover, but he was gone! My heart sank. I searched for him but could not find him anywhere. I called to him, but there was no reply. (NLT)

    Don’t hesitate when God calls to you. When He calls, we must respond and move when and as He says. If you hesitate, you may miss what He has for you.

  12. I am a Friend of God.

    16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

    He is altogether Lovely.

  13. v6 I open to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him but he gave me no answer.

    The Sleeping Bride, the holy, pure, and chaste one sleeps away the opportunity of HIS presence. The saddest thing in the world … To be comfortable in His presence.

    Isaiah 55:6″ Seek te The Lord while he may be found, call te upon him while he is near :

    Meaning … There is coining a time when you cannot find HIM, and a time when HE IS not near. HE will withdraw HIMSELF and go into the night.

    This verse gives us a grave warning let us not slumber in the presence of the LORD.

    Arise and wake for thy Salvation is nearer than when you first believe.

    Once we hear the voice of GOD, ” that pillow is never quite the same”
    (I ) .. We must get busy get with program
    pray, fast, visit. Get a hold of things what we do for the LORD we must do quickly.
    As we see unnatural signs and unnatural weather.” DON’T SLEEP CHURCH”!!!

  14. 5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.
    6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
    7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

    My Beloved pt(4)

    Several things jumped out at me as I read this, vs 5 says ” I rose up to open”, the first thing we must do is we must rise up, put away our cares for this world and seek after Him. The word tells us to enter His gates with Thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. If we arre overly concerned with this life, we miss our time with Him..

    The second thing that stood out was how far she was willing to go to get to see her beloved. Jesus tells us that in the last days we,the church, will be persicuted for His name’s sake. We must get ready, because as we near the end of time the day is drawing close where we will be hated because of our beliefs..

  15. There are times, when it seems that God does the same thing when you are in need of him. He pulls back on us to see, what we are going to do! Are we going to trust him, and have faith or are we going to panick. It’s a development thing, or maturity. But, remember Jesus said he would never leave us nor forsake us. He also, promised to complete a good work he has begun in us. “Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you, ask and you shall receive.”

    Thank God, for mercy and grace for when we do fall or when we loose our faith sometimes.

    6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

    What a state of desperation when you can’t find your love, nor hear his voice.

    “Be Blessed”………………………………..

  16. v1″ I am come”

    Don’t ever say that JESUS will not come to us. There have been thousands of testimonies that prove HE has come.
    If you have the Spirit Of GOD with the edivence of speaking in tongues, HE lives in your heart.

    In a beautiful text of the word of GOD a classic verse John 11:28″ the Master is come and calleth for thee”

    That tells us HE has come and that HE IS THEASTER OF EVERY SITIUATION
    IF you’re sick HE IS THE MASTER OF illness.
    If you’re discourage HE IS THE MASTER that will bring joy
    If you’re caught in the stormy sea HE IS THE MASTER that walks on water , the peace speaker, the comforter .

    HE HAS COME, Martha had it right.
    JESUS HAS COME!!!
    Sometimes we mistreat HIM, but HE follows us anyway. HE calleth for thee. HE will come to where you and I are. Glory to HIS MAME!

    Open your heart
    Open your door and let HIM in today .

  17. 15 His legs are as pillars of marble set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

    We need strong men of God willing to stand on the word of God against all circumstances. Able to support us, encourage us when we are weak, and to stand the adversities of this world with strong roots like a cedar. Girls when you read this make sure you start thinking of what kind of man God wants on

    your life. A faithful, strong, and worshipper man not a wishy washy, no job, no passion in his faith

  18. Verse 6 NIV :
    “I opened for my beloved,
    but my beloved had left; he was gone.
    My heart sank at his departure.
    I looked for him but did not find him.
    I called him but he did not answer.”

    If you snooze, you lose! We must not procrastinate when we hear the call, the tug on our heart or the touch in our spirit; otherwise, we could lose our opportunity to a blessing.

  19. 6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

    Time and time again God stands knocking at the door of our heart ready to come in and fill us with love, peace joy… Let’s not be deaf to the the knock, asleep in our sorrow lazy to get up and put oil in our lamps and wait and watch for the Lord. The Love of God is knocking let Him come in…

    Isah 55:6. Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

  20. V6 6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

    At times this is what God dose he looks for us but we aren’t find he calls but we don’t answer God is wanting a relationship with us when he calls I must be at his house around him listening for his calling.

  21. Consumation

    The opening lines of Chapter 5 expresses the consummation of the lovers’ relationship. The Lover is here expressing the exhilaration and joy of their union, but the pleasure is not his alone. The Beloved also expresses her pleasure (SS 6:2-3). The love they share is not just emotional or physical. The Lover calls his Beloved “my sister, my bride” (vs 5:1), and the Beloved says, “This is my lover; this [is] my friend” (vs16). These two are experiencing what is ment to be one of the significant blessing of marriage: deep, intimate friendship with each other. When the foundation of a marriage is an abiding friendship, which includes mutual respect and care, a marriage can weather most any storm. Spiritually God gave us his Holy Spirit to intimately dwell within us, therefore making us his own, stamping his seal of approval upon us. This means we have to continually renew our relationship with Him, keeping our oil burning in our lamps like the virgins in Mat 25:1. God intends to keep a close relationship with us, and that won’t change, its our responsiblity to also stay close. Evidence is God’s closeness is displayed throughout Scripture my fav’s are:

    Deut 34:10 “Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face”

    In Gen 18:17 God became so close to Abraham, He wanted to tell Abraham about His plans saying ” 17Then the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? 18Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.19For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham.”

    John 15:15 “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

  22. 16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

    The words of The Lord are sweet unto the child of God.

    Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. -Proverbs 16:24

  23. Love’s Choice

    I slept, but my heart was awake, when I heard my lover knocking and calling: “Open to me, my treasure, my darling, my dove, my perfect one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night.” But I responded, “I have taken off my robe. Should I get dressed again? I have washed my feet. Should I get them soiled?” (Song of Songs 5:2, 3 NLT)

    This book can be a bit confusing at first because of how it is written, but one proposed understanding of it is that it was written by Solomon as he observed two lovers. The girl was one seized and brought to the palace to be part of Solomon’s harem, leaving a certain separation from the one she had fallen in love with.

    This chapter marks a pivotal point in their story. The girl’s lover comes in the night, seeking her yet she hesitates in response. She had become comfortable with Palace living and answering her lover felt like something of a burden. She had a decision suddenly: answer, or stay content with a little luxury?

    Her response comes in pursuit of her suddenly missing lover. There is a dialogue between her and other women at one point, presumable perhaps other women of the harem:

    8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him that I am sick from love [simply sick to be with him].

    9 What is your beloved more than another beloved, O you fairest among women [taunted the ladies]? What is your beloved more than another beloved, that you should give us such a charge? (Song of Solomon 5:8, 9 AMP)

    She answers the taunts in describing his attractive outward qualities but it culminates with this:

    His mouth is sweetness itself; he is desirable in every way. Such, O women of Jerusalem, is my lover, my friend. (Song of Songs 5:16 NLT)

    Beyond what he is, is who he is: he is her friend. The bond goes deeper than passionate attraction and speaks of love. As she defends her pursuit she answers her earlier dilemma: stay with the attractive, rich, but worldly Solomon, or choose her beloved friend, the lowly shepherd who had won her heart?

    Such is the question facing the church. There’s a Solomon (the world) vying for our hearts and attention, but there’s also a humble Shepherd knocking upon the door of our heart.

    John 15:13
    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    The lowly Shepherd came and showed the greatest love that could be shown, yet will we take the repulsion of the cross or the glamour of the world? The world will pet our fleshly desires, tug at our hearts with carnal affections, and flirt with our focus, but will Calvary still overshadow it in our hearts? Love has a choice, what’s ours?

    Revelation 3:20
    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

    I HAVE come into my garden, my sister, my [promised] bride; I have gathered my myrrh with my balsam and spice [from your sweet words I have gathered the richest perfumes and spices]. I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk. Eat, O friends [feast on, O revelers of the palace; you can never make my lover disloyal to me]! Drink, yes, drink abundantly of love, O precious one [for now I know you are mine, irrevocably mine! With his confident words still thrilling her heart, through the lattice she saw her shepherd turn away and disappear into the night]. (Song of Solomon 5:1 AMP)

    I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8 KJV)

    Will we be FAITHful to our Shepherd?

    Joshua 24:15
    And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

  24. The price if love

    7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

    7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

    7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil
    The night watchmen found me as they patrolled the streets of the city. They slapped and beat and bruised me, ripping off my clothes, These watchmen, who were supposed to be guarding the city. (Song of Solomon 5:7 MSG)
    As she was looking for her love things happened. She was wounded. She was hurt. Things DID NOT go the way she expected.

  25. The Lord is in control of everything, He protects us from evil and allows us to do right and get back on track. Lord give me the strenght that I need to serve you, rain on me Lord. Deliver me Lord form every obstticle that gets in the way of shining for you.

  26. 2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

    The Lord comes to us at different times, urging us to awaken from sleep at times to pray. He created us, his people for relationship with us. He stands at the door and knocks at our hearts, and it is up to us to prepare ourselves, open the door and welcome Him in.

  27. 7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

    Be aware of where and when you are. The watchmen are there to protect you but if you are at the right place at the wrong time you may be wounded. That is the beauty of submission and being under authority, so that you don’t find yourself in a situation that may harm you.

  28. Left alone

    I opened for my beloved, but my beloved had left; he was gone. My heart sank at his departure. I looked for him but did not find him. I called him but he did not answer. (Song of Solomon 5:6 NIV)

    Reading this scripture makes me wonder… Does this even come close to how God feels when we leave Him?
