Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 4:6

_ _ Historically, the hill of frankincense is Calvary, where, “through the eternal Spirit He offered Himself”; the mountain of myrrh is His embalmment (John 19:39) till the resurrection “daybreak.” The third Canticle occupies the one cloudless day of His presence on earth, beginning from the night (Song of Songs 2:17) and ending with the night of His departure (Song of Songs 4:6). His promise is almost exactly in the words of her prayer (Song of Songs 2:17), (the same Holy Ghost breathing in Jesus Christ and His praying people), with the difference that she then looked for His visible coming. He now tells her that when He shall have gone from sight, He still is to be met with spiritually in prayer (Psalms 68:16; Matthew 28:20), until the everlasting day break, when we shall see face to face (1 Corinthians 13:10, 1 Corinthians 13:12).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Song of Songs 4:6

Until — These words are uttered by the bride, Song of Songs 2:17, and here returned by the bridegroom as an answer to that request. And this place may be understood of the day of glory, when all shadows and ordinances shall cease. To the hill — To my church upon earth, which was typified by the mountain of Moriah and the temple upon it. This in prophetic writings is called a mountain, and may well be called a mountain of myrrh and frankincense, both for the acceptable services which are there offered to God, and for the precious gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit, which are of a sweet smelling savour to God and men. Thus Christ directs believers, where they may find him, namely in his church and ordinances.
