CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
6:15 Walls - The name of a wall is not appropriated to stone or brick, because we read of a brazen wall, Jer 15:20, and a wall of iron, Ezek 4:3. And that wall into which Saul smote his javelin, 1Sam 19:10, seems more probably to be understood of wood, than of stone; especially, considering that it was the room where the king used to dine.

Song of Solomon 8:9
If she is a virgin, like a wall, we will protect her with a silver tower. But if she is promiscuous, like a swinging door, we will block her door with a cedar bar.
