Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 3:11


3:11 Go - The church bids particular believers go forth to see this sight. Solomon - The Messiah, of whom Solomon was an illustrious type. The crown - Which being applied to Solomon, may design that garland or crown which was usually worn in nuptial solemnities: but being applied to Christ, it denotes the honour that was given him, which though principally done by his Father, yet is here ascribed to his mother, the universal church, which in respect to his humanity may be called his mother, because he was born in, and of her, and one of her members. In the day - When the church is married to him, which is done when the covenant is confirmed between them, or when persons are converted to Christ, and more compleatly when they are received by Christ into his immediate fellowship in the kingdom of glory. Gladness - When he rejoiceth over his bride.

    The beauty and private love, desire and longing in this book is indeed so personal and its honest out pouring for all the world to see is shocking in its intimacy. Jamal gottouched a bit on the Lord's Prayer and got me thinking of its equal intensify , beauty and surrender.
  • Luke
    Lol at all of these allegories in the comments... This is about romantic love and there's nothing shameful about it. God endorses the union of people, and this doesn't need to be connected with 1st Thessalonians, Matthew, or Revelation (i.e. the Marriage supper of the lamb in each case) in order to be profound scripture.
