Song of solomon dating
Question: "What is the meaning of the foxes in Song of Solomon ?
" Answer: In Song of Solomon the Shulammite says, “Catch for us the foxes, / the little foxes / that ruin the vineyards, / our vineyards that are in bloom.” It might seem strange that, as the bride-to-be extols her betrothed’s lovely face and sweet voice (verse 14), she would speak of a fox hunt.
The bride-to-be is saying, in essence, “Let’s take preventative measures to protect our love from anything that could harm it.” In ancient literature, wild animals were often used to represent problems that could separate lovers.
We are trying to do something nice and they're just nitpicking about political correctness." Maybe true, but would it have killed the Americans to try to be just a little more aware?
I have no doubt the intention of the song was well-meaning but it is nonetheless offensive.
"It's Ramadantime,there's no need to be afraid At Ramadantime,we let in light and we banish shade And in our world of plentywe can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around the worldat Ramadantime But say a prayer,pray for the other ones At Eid Al-Fitr time it's hard,but when you're having fun There's a world outside your window,and it's a world of dread and fear Where the only water flowingis the bitter sting of tears And the Eid Al-Fitr bells that ring thereare the clanging chimes of doom Well tonight thank Allah it's theminstead of you And there won't be feasts in Europe/America this Ramadantime The greatest gift they'll get this year is life (Oooh)Where no employment ever grows No mortgages or dignity flow Do they know it's Ramadantime at all?
Here's to you raise a glass for little Joe Here's to them underneath that freezing snow Do they know it's Ramadantime at all?
