Excerpt from The Song of Songs: A Revised Translation With Introduction and Commentary The object of this volume is to unfold the meaning of one of the least appreciated portions of Holy Scripture. It is hoped that neither the necessary references to the original Hebrew, r the discussion, which can be passed over at pleasure, of the principal counter-theories of interpretation, will render it less acceptable to the majority of readers. It seemed undesirable, in the interest of the truth, to leave room for suspicion that the traditional interpretation of tire Song, howsoever it might have ministered to the edification of nearly fifty generations of Christians, would t be borne out by the results of the investigations of modern scholarship. I have therefore sought throughout to build on the surest attainable foundation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
