Welcome back, my friends,
Now, my friends, as promised when we began back on June 29, 2020, since we are not in a 'horse-race', and we have come to the end of the 'verbatim posts', and have a basis established in 'understanding' 'hermeneutics', beginning this week, July 21-23, 2020 and continuing until all chapters from the allegorical interpretation is posted, as the Lord wills.
We will now take a look at the 'allegorical' interpretation' or 'figurative approach', which are the 'allegorical' interpretation of the book including either the relationship between Israel and God and/or the church and Christ. from a 'few posts' of 'Chapter Notes' from Matthew Henry's Commentary of 1710.
I believe 'both' views, the 'grammatical-historical' approach for 'interpretation', as we posted with the 'voices', 'verbatim'; as well as the 'allegorical' interpretation' provides invaluable information for a 'strong Christian' 'walk with the Lord'. As we learned in our posts on 'hermeneutics', The Holy Spirit will quicken each believer to know what is or is not - 'true interpretation'. [Isaiah 11:1-2; John 14:26; 1 John 2:27] Amen. Amen.
Again, by now I hope and pray that you have experienced the beauty of this 'theatrical' 'Song of Songs'.
You learned who was Speaking in the Song of Songs, as we posted the chapters 'verbatim'.
The Song of Songs is a theatrical song consisting of a number of parts determined in the original by number of those speaking and the context’s presentation of gender. The singular feminine is always the young woman while the masculine singular is either the king or the shepherd determined by the speech and context. The chorus includes either the daughters of Jerusalem, wives and concubines of the king, or the young woman’s village.
Please remember. No matter how you choose to 'study the Word', you, I, must always have the corresponding Holy Bible Scripture to read directly. It is important to ALWAYS remember, the Holy Spirit will 'quicken', 'enliven our spirit' to the 'truth'. John 16:13 provides audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html :
13 'But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.' Therefore:

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710. Overview
'This book is a Divine allegory, which represents the love between Christ and his church of true believers, under figures taken from the relation and affection that subsist between a bridegroom and his espoused bride; an emblem often employed in Scripture, as describing the nearest, firmest, and most sure relation: [See Psalm 45; Isaiah 54:5,6; 62:5; Jeremiah 2:2; 3:1; also in Ezekiel, Hosea, and by our Lord himself, Matthew 9:15; 25:1: see also Revelation 21:2,9; Ephesians 5:27.] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
There is no character in the church of Christ, and no situation in which the believer is placed, but what may be traced in this book, as humble inquirers will find, on comparing it with other Scriptures, by the assistance of God the Holy Spirit, in answer to their supplications.
Much, however, of the language has been misunderstood by expositors and translators. The difference between the customs and manners of Europe, and those of the East, must especially be kept in view. The little acquaintance with eastern customs possessed by most of our early expositors and translators, has in many cases prevented a correct rendering. Also, the changes in our own language, during the last two or three centuries, affect the manner in which some expressions are viewed, and they must not be judged by modern notions. But the great outlines, rightly interpreted, fully accord with the affections and experience of the sincere Christian.
Thank you for joining me and Jesus through the Holy Spirit this afternoon for the 'Comments' without interruption. Amen. Amen. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
