Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 7:2

_ _ navel — rather, “girdle-clasp,” called from the part of the person underneath. The “shoes” (Song of Songs 7:1) prove that dress is throughout presupposed on all parts where it is usually worn. She is “a bride adorned for her husband”; the “uncomely parts,” being most adorned (1 Corinthians 12:23). The girdle-clasp was adorned with red rubies resembling the “round goblet” (crater or mixer) of spice-mixed wine (not “liquor,” Song of Songs 8:2; Isaiah 5:22). The wine of the “New Testament in His blood” (Luke 22:20). The spiritual exhilaration by it was mistaken for that caused by new wine (Acts 2:13-17; Ephesians 5:18).

_ _ belly — that is, the vesture on it. As in Psalms 45:13, Psalms 45:14, gold and needlework compose the bride’s attire, so golden-colored “wheat” and white “lilies” here. The ripe grain, in token of harvest joy, used to be decorated with lilies; so the accumulated spiritual food (John 6:35; John 12:24), free from chaff, not fenced with thorns, but made attractive by lilies (“believers,” Song of Songs 2:2; Acts 2:46, Acts 2:47; Acts 5:13, Acts 5:14, in common partaking of it). Associated with the exhilarating wine cup (Zechariah 9:17), as here.
