Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Song of Songs 8:2

_ _ Her desire to bring Him into her home circle (John 1:41).

_ _ who would instruct me — rather, “thou wouldest instruct me,” namely, how I might best please thee (Isaiah 11:2, Isaiah 11:3; Isaiah 50:4; Luke 12:12; John 14:26; John 16:13).

_ _ spiced wine — seasoned with aromatic perfumes. Jesus Christ ought to have our choicest gifts. Spices are never introduced in the song in His absence; therefore the time of His return from “the mountain of spices” (Song of Songs 8:14) is contemplated. The cup of betrothal was given by Him at the last supper; the cup or marriage shall be presented by her at His return (Matthew 26:29). Till then the believer often cannot feel towards, or speak of, Him as he would wish.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Song of Songs 8:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Song of Songs 8:2

Instruct me — Or, where she did instruct or educate me. I would — My gifts and graces should all be employed to serve and glorify thee.
