1. Song of Solomon 1:2 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

Why do we first hear the voice of the woman in Song of Songs?

Song of Solomon 1:2 (ESV)

2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine;

After the introduction in Song of Solomon 1:1, the Song begins in Song of Solomon 1:2 and the first voice that is heard is the voice of the young woman. This is appropriate because her voice will, in fact, be the main voice in the Song.
