As I read the Songs of Solomon, I can't help wondering if King was dark in complexion or something, when he said,
"Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept." (Songs of Solomon 1:6)
Was he speaking metaphorically or he was black in complexion? Why did he say " because I am black"?
