2 Kings 23:1-37; Lamentations 3:1-66; 1 Timothy 6:1-21

The song of songs, which is Solomon’s. Song of Songs 1:1

This was most likely Solomon’s “superlative” song of the 1,005
he wrote (1 Kgs. 4:32). It concerned a royal sovereign who was altogether
lovely, the fairest of ten thousand to his beloved. He was
the apple tree in the forest; a rare find indeed, giving her shade
and satisfaction (Song 2:3). He was ever gracious, bringing her to
his banqueting house with love bannered above her (2:4). Today
we are at the banqueting house of the Lord. Have you reserved
your song of songs for your Beloved? —K. C. Ung

Come, let us sing the song of songs,
The saints in heaven began the strain,
The worship which to Christ belongs:
Worthy the Lamb, for He was slain! —James Montgomery
