I Belong to my Beloved

“Fear not, I have redeemed you; I call you by name,
you are Mine!” –Isaiah 43:1

You are loved with an everlasting love
I will never forget you
My treasured possession
A living stone to declare My praise …
I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine. –Song 6:3

Word Study
From NetBible Song 6:3

  • * This is the second occurrence of the poetic refrain that occurs elsewhere in 2:16 and 7:11. The order of the first two cola are reversed from 2:16: “My beloved is mine and I am his” (2:16) but “I am my beloved’s and he is mine” (6:3). This may signal a shift in her view of their relationship: Originally, she focused on her possession of him, now she focused on his possession of her. => intimacy with the Lord has grown

From NetBible Jeremiah 31:3
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness{unfailing love, mercy} I have drawn you”.
From NetBible Isaiah 43:1, Isaiah 43:4
“Fear not, I have redeemed you; I call you by name,
you are Mine!” …
Since you are precious and special{honored} in my sight,
and I love you …

  • The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I have given waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My chosen people{elect of God}. –Isaiah 43:20
  • “They will be mine,” says the LORD Almighty, “on the day that I prepare My own treasured possession{jewels}, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” –Malachi 3:17
    =>Those who fear the Lord, become His treasured possession{jewels} whom He will never forget – even in time of great judgement
    =>We are of greater worth to the Father than the most stunning jewels imaginable, because of the price He was willing to pay
    =the precious blood of Christ. –1Peter 1:19

From NetBible Isaiah 43:21
The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare{show forth} My praise.

  • But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light –1Peter 2:9
    =>a people who have received His mercy –1Peter 2:10
    =>living stones{jewels} –1Peter 2:5
