Song of Solomon 4:11

drop—always ready to fall, being full of honey, though not always (Proverbs 10:19) actually dropping (Song of Solomon 5:13; Deuteronomy 32:2; Matthew 12:34).

honeycomb— (Proverbs 5:3; Proverbs 16:24).

under thy tongue—not always on, but under, the tongue, ready to fall (Psalms 55:21). Contrast her former state (Psalms 140:3; Romans 3:13). "Honey and milk" were the glory of the good land. The change is illustrated in the penitent thief. Contrast Matthew 27:44 with Luke 23:39, etc. It was literally with "one" eye, a sidelong glance of love "better than wine," that he refreshed Jesus Christ (Song of Solomon 4:9-10). "To-day shalt thou be with Me (compare Song of Solomon 4:8) in Paradise" (Song of Solomon 4:12), is the only joyous sentence of His seven utterances on the cross.

smell of . . . garments—which are often perfumed in the East (Psalms 45:8). The perfume comes from Him on us (Psalms 133:2). We draw nigh to God in the perfumed garment of our elder brother (Genesis 27:27; see Judges 1:23).

Lebanon—abounding in odoriferous trees (Hosea 14:5-7).
