The Song of Songs: A Revised Translation with Introduction and Commentary


Macmillan and Co. 1862

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Defending the view that the Song of Songs’ theme is that of the mutual love of the incarnate song of God and his redeemed church, Joseph Thrupp begins this work with an in-depth discussion on the other varying interpretations. Thrupp then provides astute verse-by-verse commentary on all eight chapters of Solomon’s Song.

Praise for the Print Edition

We are highly pleased with this work. It defends the usual Christian interpretation by the conclusions of sober criticism, and shows that the spiritual sense is confirmed by the investigations of modern scholarship. In the introduction the author deals heavy blows at the skeptical school, and at those who content themselves with imputing a merely moral meaning to the blessed canticle of love.

Charles Spurgeon, pastor, founder, Pastor’s College (Spurgeon’s College), London
