Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 3:7

3:7 Behold - The bride - men continue their speech, and from the admiration of the bride, proceed to the admiration of the bridegroom. Bed - The bed seems to denote the church, which is comely through Christ's beauty, and safe by his protection, in which Christ is glorified, and believers enjoy sweet fellowship with him. Solomon's - Which is the bed, not of an ordinary man, but of a great king, whom Solomon typifies, and who is greater than Solomon. Threescore - Very many, the certain number being put for an uncertain. He alludes to Solomon's guard, whereby he designs all those creatures, whether angels, princes, ministers, or others, whose ministry God uses for the protection of his church.

    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.

    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.
