4:1 Behold, thou [art] a fair, my love; behold, thou [art] fair; thou [hast] doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair [is] as a b flock of goats, that appear from mount Gilead.

    (a) Because Christ delights in his Church, he commends all that is in her.
    (b) He has respect for the multitude of the faithful, which are many in number.
4:5 Thy two c breasts [are] like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.
    (c) In which are knowledge and zeal two precious jewels.
4:8 d Come with me from Lebanon, [my] spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards.
    (d) Christ promises his Church to call his faithful from all the corners of the world.
4:9 Thou hast ravished my heart, my e sister, [my] spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thy f eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
    (e) Christ calls his Church sister in respect that he had taken the flesh of man.
    (f) In that he made his Church beautiful and rich, he loved his gifts in her.
4:11 Thy g lips, O [my] spouse, drop [as] the honeycomb: honey and milk [are] under thy tongue; and the scent of thy garments [is] like the fragrance of Lebanon.
    (g) Because of your confession and thanksgiving.
4:15 h A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
    (h) The Church confesses that all her glory and beauty comes from Christ who is the true fountain of all grace.

4:16 Awake, O i north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, [that] its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.

    (i) She desires Christ to comfort her and to pour the graces of his Spirit on her, which is meant by the North and South wind.
