“You have ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse;
You have ravished my heart with one glance of your eyes,
With one strand of your necklace.”
— Song of Songs 4:9
Such a response ravishes the Lord’s heart. Previously, the Shulammite made a great show of pursuing the Lord, yet the Lord compared her to a mare. Here she says nothing, yet the Lord says she has ravished His heart.
