Context: It is important to remember that although this books depicts the relationship between a man and woman, it also represents the relationship between ourselves and Christ. This can at times make Song of Solomon difficult to read and understand. In chapter 5, we see how powerless we are on our own, without the Lord. A relationship with the Lord is something that we must work at, just like any relationship! There may be times in our relationship in which we strike out on our own and become lost. We can find our way back and He will rejoice when we do!
