“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.” (Song of Songs 8:4)

What is a book about love doing in the Bible? Romantic love, physical love. Why would that be in the Bible?

I think it’s a reminder that Satan didn’t invent romance; God did. Human beings didn’t create love between a man and a woman; God did.

The fact that we’re surprised to find a book about romance in the Bible shows why we need such a book in the Bible.
