Song of Songs 2:14-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock.[a]
It was I who took you and hid you up high
in the secret stairway of the sky.
Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice.[b]
How beautiful your eyes of worship
and lovely your voice in prayer.
15 You must catch the troubling foxes,
those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship.[c]
For they raid our budding vineyard of love
to ruin what I’ve planted within you.
Will you catch them and remove them for me?
We will do it together.

Footnotes:

  1. Song of Songs 2:14 This speaks of the wounded side of Jesus, our Rock where we hide and rest. When Moses asked God to see his glory, God hid Moses in the cleft of the rock. See Ex. 33:22.
  2. Song of Songs 2:14 The Hebrew text literally means “Your voice is delicious.”
  3. Song of Songs 2:15 These “foxes” are the compromises that are hidden deep in our hearts. These are areas of our lives where we have not yet allowed the victory of Christ to shine into. The foxes keep the fruit of his Spirit from growing within us.

Song of Songs 2:14-15 New International Version (NIV)

He

14 My dove in the clefts of the rock,
    in the hiding places on the mountainside,
show me your face,
    let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet,
    and your face is lovely.
15 Catch for us the foxes,
    the little foxes
that ruin the vineyards,
    our vineyards that are in bloom.
