Ivory, Tower of

Additional Links

( מגדּל השּׁן , mighdal hashēn ): In Song of Solomon 7:4 the neck of the Shulammite is compared in whiteness and stateliness to a (or the) tower of ivory. The definite article may suggest that the comparison is with some actual tower in or near Jerusalem; but more probably the language is simply a figure.
