Song Of Songs Of Solomon by Madame Guyon
9. If she be a wall, we will build upon it bulwarks of silver; if she be a door we will frame it with boards of cedar.
The Bridegroom replies: if she be already a wall of confidence through a well established passivity, we will begin to build upon her bulwarks of silver, for her defence against the enemies of this advanced state, which are human reason, reflection and the subtlety of self-love. But, if she is as yet but a door, just beginning to emerge from multiplicity to enter into simplicity, we will frame her with graces and virtues which shall have the beauty and solidity of cedar.
