Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 1:6

1:6 Look not - With wonder and disdain. Mother's children - False brethren, who pretend that the church is their mother, when their actions demonstrate, that God, the husband of the church, is not their father; hypocritial professors, who are, and ever were, the keenest enemies; false teachers, and their followers, who by their corrupt doctrines, and divisions, and contentions, bring great mischief to the church. Made me - Having prevailed against me, they used me like a slave, putting me upon the most troublesome services, such as the keeping of the vineyards was esteemed, #2Kings 25:12 Isa 61:5 Matt 20:1 |- 7. Not kept - They gave me such a full employment in the drudging work about their vineyards, that they left me no time to mind my own; they hindered me from doing my own duty, and from minding my own concerns. And therefore it is no wonder if I be uncomely and scorched by the sun.

I think about dead fish selfish. If you don't have the Holy Spirit to guide you or you continue to do wrong to Gods people there will be consequences. People need to understand that the symbol of dead fish means a fish without the living water. Most people find times where they run into self centered individuals. These people can be in your very own family so you have to be on guard to take care of your own life before you allow someone to use you up.

This verse is not only amazing but also a revelation, which I didn't get in my over 40 years of attending and working in d church. Truly, it's only the Spirit that reveal the secret things...

I was very surprised when I stumbled on this verse. I said to myself so King Solomon was a BLACKMAN and modern history hide it from the world. So, if King Solomon was a BLACKMAN then Jesus Christ must be a BLACKMAN too.
