Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 1:15


1:15 Behold - This is the speech of Christ. The words are doubled to manifest his fervent affection for her. Doves eyes - Which are mild and harmless, chaste and faithful. And by the eyes he seems to design both her outward behaviour, and the inward disposition of her mind.

    This is a romantic love song by Solomon to a woman! Given as an example as how men are suppose to love their wives.

    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.
