Song of Solomon
A dark-skinned beauty is marrying the king, and both are thrilled. “Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair, thou hast doves’ eyes,” he tells her (1:15). “Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green,” she responds (1:16). Through eight chapters and 117 verses, the two lovers admire each other’s physical beauty, expressing their love and devotion.
