Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 1:9


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.

    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.
