Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 6:5

_ _ (Song of Songs 4:9; Genesis 32:28; Exodus 32:9-14; Hosea 12:4). This is the way “the army” (Song of Songs 6:4) “overcomes” not only enemies, but Jesus Christ Himself, with eyes fixed on Him (Psalms 25:15; Matthew 11:12). Historically, Song of Songs 6:3-5, represent the restoration of Jesus Christ to His Church at the resurrection; His sending her forth as an army, with new powers (Mark 16:15-18, Mark 16:20); His rehearsing the same instructions (see on Song of Songs 6:6) as when with them (Luke 24:44).

_ _ overcome — literally, “have taken me by storm.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Song of Songs 6:4-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Song of Songs 6:5

Turn away — It is a poetical expression, signifying how beautiful the church was in Christ's eyes. Thy hair — This clause, and the whole following verse are repeated from, Song of Songs 4:1-2. And this repetition is not vain but confirms what was said before, that the churches miscarriage had not alienated Christ's affection from her.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
