Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 2:13

_ _ putteth forth — rather, “ripens,” literally, “makes red” [Maurer]. The unripe figs, which grow in winter, begin to ripen in early spring, and in June are fully matured [Weiss].

_ _ vines with the tender grape — rather, “the vines in flower,” literally, “a flower,” in apposition with “vines” [Maurer]. The vine flowers were so sweet that they were often put, when dried, into new wine to give it flavor. Applicable to the first manifestations of Jesus Christ, “the true Vine,” both to the Church and to individuals; as to Nathanael under the fig tree (John 1:48).

_ _ Arise, etc. — His call, described by the bride, ends as it began (Song of Songs 2:10); it is a consistent whole; “love” from first to last (Isaiah 52:1, Isaiah 52:2; 2 Corinthians 6:17, 2 Corinthians 6:18). “Come,” in the close of Revelation 22:17, as at His earlier manifestation (Matthew 11:28).
