Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO SONG OF SOLOMON 6\\

The discourse between the church and the daughters of Jerusalem is
continued in this chapter: they inquire whither her beloved was gone,
in order to seek him with her, \\#So 6:1\\; she tells them where he was
gone, and for what purpose he went thither, and what he was doing
there; and claims and asserts her interest in him, \\#So 6:2,3\\; Then
follows a commendation of the church by Christ, who admires her beauty,
and describes her by her eyes, hair \\#So 6:4-7\\; and prefers her
to all others; being a singular and choice one to him, and the praise
of others, \\#So 6:8-10\\; and next he gives an account of his going
into his garden, and his design in it, and of what happened to him
there, \\#So 6:11,12\\. And the chapter is concluded with a charge to
the Shulamite, to turn herself, that she might be looked upon; which
occasions a question, to which an answer is returned, \\#So 6:13\\.
