Song of Solomon 5:11 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:11 As gold - It shines like gold, by reason of the crown of pure gold upon his head. We need not aim at a distinct application of this and the following particulars, unto some special excellency of Christ, because such things are mere conjectures, and the only design of this description is, to set forth the beauty of Christ under the notion of a most amiable person, in whom there is no defect or blemish, from the crown of his head to the sole of his feet.
Song of Solomon 5:2
I slept, but my heart was awake, when I heard my lover knocking and calling: "Open to me, my treasure, my darling, my dove, my perfect one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night."
Song of Solomon 5:12
His eyes sparkle like doves beside springs of water; they are set like jewels washed in milk.
