7. This thy stature ] or as we should say, this form of thine.

is like to a palm tree ] This is a very favourite figure with Oriental poets, graceful slenderness and tall stature being specially admired. Hence Tamar = ‘palm’ was a frequent woman’s name.

clusters of grapes] Heb. ashkôlôth, not necessarily of grapes. Cp. ch. Son 1:14, where we have a cluster of henna, and here the clusters of ripe dates hanging from the palm are evidently meant. Oettli thinks their sweetness, not their form, the point of the comparison.

Chap. Son 7:7 Chap. Son 8:4. The King and the Shepherdess the last Assault

We may suppose that after her attendants have completed the Shulammite’s adornment, and have finished their fulsome praises of her beauty, she receives a new visit from the king. In Son 7:7-9 he gives utterance to his admiration in more sensuous terms than ever, and in Son 7:9 b she turns his talk aside, and dwells upon her lover. In Son 7:10 she gives her final answer in the exclamation that she belongs to him alone. The king then withdraws, and in Son 7:11-13 she lets her heart go out to her absent lover, and calls upon him to go back with her into their obscure but happy country life. In Son 8:1-3 she expresses a wish that he were her brother, so that she might love him without reproach, and concludes in Son 7:4 with a modification of the adjuration in Son 2:7 and Son 3:5.
