Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 7:7

_ _ palm tree — (Psalms 92:12). The sure sign of water near (Exodus 15:27; John 7:38).

_ _ clusters — not of dates, as Moody Stuart thinks. The parallelism (Song of Songs 7:8), “clusters of the vine,” shows it is here clusters of grapes. Vines were often trained (termed “wedded”) on other trees.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Song of Songs 7:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Song of Songs 7:7

Palm — tree — Tall and strait, or upright. And he seems to mention the palm — tree, rather than any other, because it is constantly green and flourishing, and grows upward in spite of all pressures.
