Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 1:10


1:10 Jewels - Which being fastened to the heads of brides, used to hang down upon their cheeks, in those times. He mentions the cheeks, as the chief seat of beauty. Chains - Whereby, as well as by the rows of jewels: he may seem to design all those persons and things wherewith the church is made beautiful in the eyes of God, and of men, such as excellent ministers, and saints, righteous laws, holy ordinances, and the gifts and graces of God's spirit.

    I agree with Mary's idea . As I went through the chapters song of songs , there was a female mentioned here, and she was black. And the whole chapters never mentioned God. When we read the Bible that mentioned about the Queen Shiba, I already got my thought that she perhaps became King Salomon's lover and so on.
