Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 6:9

_ _ Hollow professors, like half wives, have no part in the one bride.

_ _ only one of her mother — namely, “Jerusalem above” (Galatians 4:26). The “little sister” (Song of Songs 8:8) is not inconsistent with her being “the only one”; for that sister is one with herself (John 10:16).

_ _ choice — (Ephesians 1:4; 2 Thessalonians 2:13). As she exalted Him above all others (Song of Songs 5:10), so He now her.

_ _ daughters ... blessed her — (Isaiah 8:18; Isaiah 61:9; Ezekiel 16:14; 2 Thessalonians 1:10). So at her appearance after Pentecost (Acts 4:13; Acts 6:15; Acts 24:25; Acts 26:28).
