CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:14 My dove - So the church is called, for her dove - like temper, and for her dove - like condition, because she is weak, and exposed to persecution, and therefore forced to hide herself in rocks. The stairs - In the holes of craggy and broken rocks, which resemble stairs. Let me see - Be not afraid to appear before me. Hear - Thy prayers and praises. For - Thy person and services are amiable in my sight.
Don't let these wild beasts destroy your turtledoves. Don't forget your suffering people forever.

O my darling, lingering in the gardens, your companions are fortunate to hear your voice. Let me hear it, too!
