Chapter 6

In this chapter, I. The daughters of Jerusalem, moved with the description which the church had given of Christ, enquire after him, Song 6:1. II. The church directs them where they may meet with him, Song 6:2, 3. III. Christ is now found of those that sought him, and very highly applauds the beauty of his spouse, as one extremely smitten with it (Song 6:4-7), preferring her before all others (Song 6:8, 9), recommending her to the love and esteem of all her neighbours (Song 6:10), and, lastly, acknowledging the impressions which her beauty had made upon him and the great delight he took in it, Song 6:11-13.
