Song of Solomon 8:9-10

“If she is a wall, we will build towers of silver on her. If she is a door, we will enclose her with panels of cedar.” Song of Solomon 8:9-10

First of all, let me give you a little bit of a background story.

The verse is talking about a man’s sister who is a virgin. He is saying that he will protect her from harm and danger.

The places that she has walls, or strengths, he will build up towers on to make them stronger. Her weaknesses, or the doors, he will put panels of cedar on to close the open spaces to protect her.

This verse means a lot to me when trying to guard my own heart and when trying to help other young women to guard their hearts and protect themselves. It encourages me to maintain purity in relationships.
