Song of Solomon 2v10-15

The Season of Singing

Introduction

The bride continues in her description of her love and her lover.

1.      A Gracious Invitation v10

10, 11. Loving reassurance given by Jesus Christ to the bride, lest she should think that He had ceased to love her, on account of her unfaithfulness, which had occasioned His temporary withdrawal. He allures her to brighter than worldly joys (Mic 2:10). Not only does the saint wish to depart to be with Him, but He still more desires to have the saint with Him above (Jn 17:24).

Micah 2:10

10 Get up, go away!

For this is not your resting place,

because it is defiled,

it is ruined, beyond all remedy.[1]

John 17:24

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.[2]


 

Isaiah 55:1-2

1 “Come, all you who are thirsty,

come to the waters;

and you who have no money,

come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without cost.

2 Why spend money on what is not bread,

and your labour on what does not satisfy?

Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,

and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.[3]

2.      A Complete Change v11

11. the winter—the law of the covenant of works (Mt 4:16).

rain is over—(Heb 12:18–24; 1Jn 2:8). Then first the Gentile Church is called “beloved, which was not beloved” (Ro 9:25). So “the winter” of estrangement and sin is “past” to the believer (Is 44:22; Je 50:20; 2Co 5:17; Eph 2:1). The rising “Sun of righteousness” dispels the “rain” (2Sa 23:4; Ps 126:5; Mal 4:2). The winter in Palestine is past by April, but all the showers were not over till May. The time described here is that which comes directly after these last showers of winter. In the highest sense, the coming resurrection and deliverance of the earth from the past curse is here implied (Ro 8:19; Rev 21:4; 22:3). No more “clouds” shall then “return after the rain” (Ec 12:2; Rev 4:3; compare Ge 9:13–17); “the rainbow round the throne” is the “token” of this.

3.      Abundant Blessing v12-13

a.      Growth v12

b.      Singing v12

Psalm 13:6

6 I will sing to the Lord,

for he has been good to me.[4]

Psalm 33:1

1 Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;

it is fitting for the upright to praise him.[5]


 

Psalm 68:4

4 Sing to God, sing praise to his name,

extol him who rides on the clouds—

his name is the Lord—

and rejoice before him.[6]

Psalm 98:1

1 Sing to the Lord a new song,

for he has done marvellous things;

his right hand and his holy arm

have worked salvation for him.[7]

Isaiah 44:3

3 For I will pour water on the thirsty land,

and streams on the dry ground;

I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,

and my blessing on your descendants.[8]

Ephesians 5:19

19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,[9]

c.      Peace v12

d.      Fruit v13

e.      Come v13

4.      Hiding v14

5.      Sin v15

Conclusion

Our Lord invites us to be with him, do not try and hide but come to him for grace.
