With no mention of the Lord God, no mention of the Scripture, and no mention of Israel, the Song of Solomon is unlike any of the books which unquestionably are canonical.  Indeed, the book appears to have no spiritual value.  According to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) article on the Song of Solomon, the "New Testament" (which is to say, the body of Scripture penned subsequent to the Incarnation) contains no quotation from the book, nor is there any clear allusion to the book on the part of Jesus or the apostles.  If the assessment of the ISBE indeed is true, then the Christian, following the command of I Thessalonians 5:21, "Prove all things," must conclude that the Song of Solomon has no rightful place in the Canon of Scripture, but should be relegated to the waste bin.
