CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Sweet flowers - Better as in the margin, i. e., plants with fragrant leaves and flowers trained on trellis-work.
Like lilies - Are lilies dropping liquid myrrh (see the Sol 5:5 note). Perhaps the fragrance of the flowers, or the delicate curl of the lip-like petals, is here the point of comparison, rather than the color.
Song of Solomon 1:10
"Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments, Your neck with strings of beads."
Song of Solomon 2:1
"I am the rose of Sharon, The lily of the valleys."

Song of Solomon 6:2
"My beloved has gone down to his garden, To the beds of balsam, To pasture his flock in the gardens And gather lilies.
