That is SO romantic!!!! Thanks! How is it a metaphor for the Sabbath? Also, the fact he sings it on a Friday night......does that sort of "kick off" the Sabbath?

Shalom!

Oh, I forgot to post earlier..........don't forget ALL the Biblical references to craftsmanship and how the gifts of craftsmanship are from the Lord. Specifically I am thinking of the construction of the Tabernacle as explained in detail by God how it all should be done in the book of Exodus - every skill from working with gold, carpentry, spinning, etc.

Exo 35:31 "And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in all craftsmanship;
Exo 35:32 to make designs for working in gold and in silver and in bronze,
Exo 35:33 and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood, so as to perform in every inventive work.

Also:
Exo 35:35 " He has filled them with skill to perform every work of an engraver and of a designer and of an embroiderer, in blue and in purple {and} in scarlet {material,} and in fine linen, and of a weaver, as performers of every work and makers of designs.

Exo 35:26 All the women whose heart stirred with a skill spun the goats' {hair.}

Exodus chapters 35 & 36 are scattered with such verses.

It is kind of romantic. Its one of the things that kick off the Shabbat at home.Traditionally, a Jewish woman lights at least two candles to bring in the Sabbath. A lot of the time men bring flowers home too. There is a nice meal on the table and sometimes we sing hymns about the Sabbath at the table. The traditional metaphor for the Sabbath is that of a queen or bride. In synagogue we sing a hymn called Lecha dodi, Come my beloved to greet the bride-the Sabbath presence, let us welcome. The last verse is

Enter in peace, O crown of her husband,
Even in gladness and good cheer
Among the faithful of the treasured nation
Enter O bride, Enter O bride.

When that verse is sung, all of the congregants get up and turn toward the rear of the synagogue as if an actual bride were coming down the aisle.

(Sorry for hijacking the post)

Jeremy, this is a welcomed hijack (from my perspective) - but entirely my fault, I'm the one that led it down the hijacked path!

I study Scripture from a Jewish perspective (Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum & Dr. Chuck Missler and others). This is enlightening in the point of view of the Church as the bride, and the Sabbath (rest) which we will have when Jesus comes for His bride. Thanks! I will discuss it with my Missler study online group.

And now back to our scheduled thread..............

I love the proverbs woman of valor. When my husband and i got engaged he gave me a rubies because proverbs says she is worth more than rubies.

Thanks for sharing how this verse is part of the Jewish Sabbath, Jeremy. I agree it is romantic.

Just throwing something out there .. I have not read Song of Solomon lately but I do remember is about a husband and wife having a proverb duel so to speak about how wonderful the other is .. in some translations it may sound totally awkward .. in others it sounds practially like a porno .. but there may be something in there about how the woman does great things with hard work or something. Just a thought!!!

LOL, we'll have to look that one up......I know there is very sexy language in Song of Solomon but don't recall this "duel". I do believe the happiest marriage is one where each spouse thinks he/she got better than they deserve. ......I know I did! I won't speak for DH, but let's just say we've been married nearly 20 years and sometimes people still think we're newlyweds.

P.S. Congrats on your new blog. I will link to my lengthy list of knitting blogs on mine so I can check it out from time to time!

Ok, duel may have been the wrong word but I was coming up with a loss at the moment when I typed it up.

Thanks for the blog notice. It may not be fancy but it is meee!

Ok, I just took a quick read through the book and there isn't anything there about how great the woman's work is, just the man talking about how great the woman's body is.



If only there would be someone like that for me .. maybe Fabio? I was always a sucker for an accent!!

Oh wait .. I'd have to have a great body first .. nevermind.
