Commentary on the Song of Songs, Chapter Two Verse 6

by James Durham

Verse 6. His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.

She expresseth Christ's care of her in this condition, verse 6 as a most loving husband, he sustains her in his arms, in this swoon and swarf, which from joy she falls into, as the words do plainly bear. Observe. 1. Christ's love is a sensible. sustaining thing, and is able to support the heart under its greatest weakness. 2. As Christ is tender of all his people, and at all times, so especially when they are in their fits of love-sickness. 3. As believers would observe Christ's love at all times, so especially when they are weakest; for then they will find it both seasonable and profitable so to do.
