Nice house (Song 1:16-1:17)

Male lover


You are beautiful!

My beloved!

You are truly lovely.

Our couch is green.

The beams of our house are cedar.

Our rafters are pine.”

The male lover also responded that she was beautiful and lovely also. However, then he began to describe his house. They had a green couch. Maybe that was special. The beams were made of cedar that normally came from Lebanon, but not mentioned her. The rafters were made of pine so it was the best wood available.
