“Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:3 Ointments - Because of those excellent gifts and graces of God's Spirit wherewith thou art replenished. Thy name - Thy report, the very mention of thee, and all those things by which thou makest thyself known to men, thy word, particularly thine offers of pardon and salvation to sinners; and all thy works, especially that great work of redemption is most acceptable, and refreshing. The virgins - called the companions of the bride, #Psal 45:14|, particular believers, who are called virgins, #2Cor 11:2 Rev 14:4|, who have their senses exercised to perceive this sweetness and fulness of Christ.
