Solomon’s Song: Translated and Explained in Three Parts


J. E. Tilton and Company 1861

Leonard Withington divides his study of the Song of Songs into three parts: “The Manuduction,” “The Version,” and “The Supplement.” Throughout, Withington defends the stance that the Song is divine allegory, showing the love that exists between Christ, the bridegroom, and his bride, the church.
