Song 6:2–3

6:2, 3 The language of these two verses is taken from two earlier passages dealing with imagined encounters between the girl and her beloved, 5:1 and 2:16. Most likely because she suspects their motives (v. 1 note), the girl has in effect rejected the offer of the daughters of Jerusalem to help her search for her beloved, and has returned to musing about her times of intimacy with him.
