Saw Ye Him Whom My Soul Loveth?

Song of Solomon 5
Song of Solomon 5
Note that when the bride, through her slothfulness, or rather security, has caused her beloved to depart, she does not try to hide this and to seem to beholders as if she were in His love. No, there is thorough honesty. For He was her all, and if He was gone, it was a real grief and loss. Beholders were nothing to her-it was Himself she sought. Her fellowship was a real thing, and the loss real too. To find dim again was her great concern.
