Song of Solomon 3:9
9“King Solomon has made for himself a sedan chair
         From the timber of Lebanon.

10“He made its posts of silver,
         Its back of gold
         And its seat of purple fabric,
         With its interior lovingly fitted out
         By the daughters of Jerusalem.

11“Go forth, O daughters of Zion,
         And gaze on King Solomon with the crown
         With which his mother has crowned him
         On the day of his wedding,
         And on the day of his gladness of heart.”

The church's beauty in the eyes of Christ. SS 4:1-11. Kind is the speech of Christ our Lord, Affection sounds in every word: Lo! thou art fair, my love," he cries, "Not the young doves have sweeter eyes."

Consider the numbers redeemed, and the means of their redemption. Rev. 5:9, "And they sang a new song, saying, 'You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood, out of every
