“His locks are bushy, and black as a raven” – Song of Songs 5:11. This is the second of the ten features of the Beloved’s beauty as described by His bride. This is spoken by her as one unveiled and who has experienced Him intimately. “Locks” is that which grows over His forehead. The word for “locks” is only used twice in the Hebrew Bible, and both are found in the Song of Songs.
1) “locks with drops of the night” – as the Man of Sorrows suffering in the night, as Gethsemane
2) “locks are bushy, and black” – displaying the authority of obedience with the color of unending vigor and the attractiveness of youth
