Garner-Howes Baptist CommentaryGarner-Howes

Verses 1-5

SONG OF SOLOMON CHAPTER 7

RESPONSE OF GUESTS

Verses 1-5 express in song the response of the guests as they witness the dance of the Shulamite. The last line of verse 5 refers to "a king" not "the king", and is not necessarily a reference to Solomon.

Verses 6-9

PRAISE OF THE HUSBAND

Verses 6-9 express in poetic language the praise of the shepherd husband for his bride

Verses 10-13

Song of Solomon 7:10-13

SHULAMITE REAFFIRMS HER COMMITMENT TO HER SHEPHERD SPOUSE

Verse 10 reaffirms the Shulamite’s commitment to the beloved shepherd.

Verses 11-13 express the Shulam’te’s desire and readiness for a honeymoon in the field and villages as the shepherd had proposed in Song of Solomon 2:10-14.
