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

User-Posted Comments on Song of Songs 6:5


It is nice to note that Strong's Hebrew number 6777 means woman's veil or a wedding veil a woman wears when getting married. Just as Rebekah wore a veil when she was brought forth to Isaac, so the Bride of Christ will wear a veil when she is brought to Yeshua in the 1st watch, when Yeshua cries out: "Rise up My love, My fair one and come away!" In Matthew 25:1 in Aramaic version, it is wonderful to know that the five wise will go out to meet the groom and the bride when they return from the wedding fulfilling Luke 12:36 during either the 2nd watch or the 3rd watch (Luke 12:35-40). The fascinating thing to note about woman's veil, lexiconcordance.com/hebrew/6777.html is that it matches the 6,777th verse in the New Testament from Matthew 1:1. Titus 2:13 is every born again believer's blessed hope of the coming of our Great Elohim, our Father YHWH and our Adonai and Savior Yeshua HaMashiach blessed hope, their glorious coming!! When the Spirit and the Bride say "Come," those who are humble and wise, who make up the body of Christ will be able to go out to meet them.
Matthew 25:1 Aramaic in Plain English Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be compared to ten virgins; the same took their lamps and went to meet the groom and the bride. 2 But five of them were wise and five were foolish.
Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

The repetition of the description of the lovely bride by Christ shows that what she had only in embryo or germ has grown up into divine reality in her display of beauty (S. of S. 6:5-7; 4:1-3). She lays hold of Him as He has laid hold of her. His initial view and impartation of Himself into her is now expressed in fullness!
