This commentary is based on my notes after reading The New International Commentary on the Old Testament: Song of Songs, by Tremper Longman III, 2001
Poem 12 (Closeness and Security)
v 8 With me from Lebanon, my bride; with me from Lebanon, come!
Come down from the top of Amana; from the top of Senir and Hermon,
from the dens of lions, from the heights of leopards.
She is distant; he wants her close. She is in danger; he wants her safe.
v 9 You drive me crazy, my sister, my bride!
You drive me crazy, with one glance from your eyes, with one jewel from your necklace.
It doesn’t take much for her to get his attention.
