Upon the Mountains of Spices

November 20, 2017

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).

27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

You are Beloved

October 31, 2017

You are beloved
My bride
My delight –Song 7:6

Just one glance of your eyes
The eyes of my dove
The eyes of my beloved
Beautiful –Song 6:1
Precious in my sight –Isa 43:4
I have called you by name
You are mine! –Isa 43:4
.

.

The Lover to His Beloved:
How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves.Song 1:15
.
You have ravished my heart, My sister, My bride; You have ravished My heart, With one glance of your eyes.Song 4:9

***

Song 7:10I am my beloved’s, and His desire is for me.

Song 6:3I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine.

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). The significance of this shift depends on whether the parallelism is synonymous or climactic. This might merely be a literary variation with no rhetorical significance. On the other hand, it might 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.
