“I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:9 Compared thee - For strength and courage, to overcome all thine enemies. For horses are famous for that property, and the strength of the battle was then thought to consist much in horses, and chariots, especially in a company or multitude of them. And the church in this book is represented not only as fair and beautiful, but also as terrible to her enemies.
