In this chapter, after the title of the book
(ver. 1), we have Christ and
his church, Christ and a believer, expressing their esteem for each
other. I. The bride, the church, speaks to the bridegroom
(ver. 2-4), to the
daughters of Jerusalem (ver. 5,
6), and then to the bridegroom, ver. 7. II. Christ, the bridegroom, speaks in
answer to the complaints and requests of his spouse, ver. 8-11. III. The church expresses
the great value she has for Christ, and the delights she takes in
communion with him, ver.
12-14. IV. Christ commends the church's beauty,
ver. 15. V. The church
returns the commendation, ver. 16,
17. Where there is a fire of true love to Christ in the
heart this will be of use to blow it up into a flame.
