Passage: Song of Solomon 8:14

Song of Solomon 8:14 – Make Haste, My Beloved

Summary

The Song closes with another call by the woman that her beloved might come as rapidly and gracefully as a gazelle.

Analysis

The Song comes to no rest at its end. The final verse continues the tone that colors the poetry throughout, a forward-looking yearning and restlessness that seeks fulfillment yet to come, even as it rejoices in the pleasures of present experiences of love. As seen by the Song, true love is never at rest; it is always going somewhere, always developing and growing, always seeking something new in the life with the beloved.
