Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 5:4

_ _ A key in the East is usually a piece of wood with pegs in it corresponding to small holes in a wooden bolt within, and is put through a hole in the door, and thus draws the bolt. So Jesus Christ “puts forth His hand (namely, His Spirit, Ezekiel 3:14), by (Hebrew, ‘from,’ so in Song of Songs 2:9) the hole”; in “chastening” (Psalms 38:2; Revelation 3:14-22, singularly similar to this passage), and other unexpected ways letting Himself in (Luke 22:61, Luke 22:62).

_ _ bowels ... moved for him — It is His which are first troubled for us, and which cause ours to be troubled for Him (Jeremiah 31:20; Hosea 11:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Song of Songs 5:2-8.
