Upon the Mountains of Spices

Song of Solomon 8:14 AMPC … [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to Him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with Him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices!

Make haste Beloved
Come quickly and meet
Upon the mountains of spices
Dance the dance of the hart{heart} –
Hab 3:18
A sweet fragrance released
An incense so sweet
Songs all thru the night –
Ps 42:8
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee –
Sos 4:6, 2:17
Dance upon the mountain of myrrh
With the feet of the hindHab 3:19
The aroma of Christ2Cor 2:14
In the mount of the LORD
It will be provided
And SEEN. Gen 22:14

Song 4:6Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense.

The hill of frankincense is Calvary, where, “through the eternal Spirit He offered Himself”{a fragrant offering –Eph 5:2}; the mountain of myrrh is His embalmment & burial in the garden(Jn 19:39-42) till the resurrection “daybreak.” (*from Jameison-Fausset-Brown)

a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil{usually made from myrrh}, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table . -Mt 26:7

Many commentaries think the mountain of myrrh – Heb mor, points to Mt Moriah- the place of myrrh(referring to the spices burnt as incense) where the temple was built(2 Chr 3:1) and where Abraham offered up his son Isaac, foreshadowing Christ’s sacrifice. (Matthew Henry, Wikipedia) Abraham called this place ‘The LORD Will Provide’. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided{seen}” (Gen 22:2,14).

    Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens,
    that thou wouldest come down.
    Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a
    young hart upon the mountains of spices. We ourselves groan
    within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the
    redemption of our body. Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down:
    touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
    This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
    shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
    Unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time
    without sin unto salvation. It shall be said in that day, Lo,
    this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us:
    this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and
    rejoice in his salvation.
    He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come
    quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. That blessed hope,
    the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour
    Jesus Christ. Our conversation is in heaven.
