Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 1:13

_ _ bundle of myrrh — abundant preciousness (Greek), (1 Peter 2:7). Even a little myrrh was costly; much more a bundle (Colossians 2:9). Burrowes takes it of a scent-box filled with liquid myrrh; the liquid obtained by incision gave the tree its chief value.

_ _ he — rather, “it”; it is the myrrh that lies in the bosom, as the cluster of camphire is in the vineyards (Song of Songs 1:14).

_ _ all night — an undivided heart (Ephesians 3:17; contrast Jeremiah 4:14; Ezekiel 16:15, Ezekiel 16:30). Yet on account of the everlasting covenant, God restores the adulteress (Ezekiel 16:60, Ezekiel 16:62; Hosea 2:2, etc.). The night is the whole present dispensation till the everlasting day dawns (Romans 13:12). Also, literally, “night” (Psalms 119:147, Psalms 119:148), the night of affliction (Psalms 42:8).
