CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The section might be entitled, "Renewed declaration of love after brief estrangement."
Tirzah ... Jerusalem - Named together as the then two fairest cities of the land. For Jerusalem compare Psalm 48:2. "Tirzah" (i. e., "Grace" or "Beauty ")was an old Canaanite royal city Joshua 12:24. It became again a royal residence during the reigns of Baasha and his three successors in the kingdom of the ten tribes, and may well therefore have been famed for its beauty in the time of Solomon.
Terrible as ... - Awe-inspiring as the bannered (hosts). The warlike image, like others in the Song, serves to enhance the charm of its assured peace.
1 Kings 14:17
Then Jeroboam's wife arose and departed and came to Tirzah. As she was entering the threshold of the house, the child died.
Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion in the far north, The city of the great King.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth.
Song of Solomon 1:5
"I am black but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, Like the tents of Kedar, Like the curtains of Solomon.
Song of Solomon 1:15
"How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves."
Song of Solomon 6:10
'Who is this that grows like the dawn, As beautiful as the full moon, As pure as the sun, As awesome as an army with banners?'
