Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 8:11

_ _ The joint Church speaks of Jesus Christ’s vineyard. Transference of it from the Jews, who rendered not the fruits, as is implied by the silence respecting any, to the Gentiles (Matthew 21:33-43).

_ _ Baal-hamon — equivalent to the owner of a multitude; so Israel in Solomon’s day (1 Kings 4:20); so Isaiah 5:1, “a very fruitful hill” abounding in privileges, as in numbers.

_ _ thousand pieces — namely, silverlings, or shekels. The vineyard had a thousand vines probably; a vine at a silverling (Isaiah 7:23), referring to this passage.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Song of Songs 8:8-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Song of Songs 8:11

Baal — hamon — A place not far from Jerusalem. A thousand — Whereby he signifies both the vast extent of the vineyard which required so many keepers, and its singular fertility.
