Song of Solomon 6:3

untitled

I [am] my beloved’s, and my beloved [is] mine
Expressive of interest in Christ, and union to him, and of her faith therein; which still continued, notwithstanding her unbecoming behaviour toward Christ, and her many infirmities, ( Song of Solomon 5:2 Song of Solomon 5:3 )  I know I am his, and he is mine; which throws a beauty upon the words, and declares the excellency and strength of her faith; for herein lies the glory and excellency of faith, to believe in an unseen Christ: though it may be the Shechinah was with her; or Christ had now appeared to her, and was found by her, and therefore, like Thomas, says, “my Lord and my God” or David who says, “The Lord is my shepherd” or Jeremiah in deep tribulation declaring,” The Lord is my portion, saith my soul, therefore will I hope in him.” (Lam.3:24)

Heidelberg Catechism Lord’s Day One reads: Q. 1.  What is thy only comfort in life and death?
A.  That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; who, with His precious blood, hath fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, and therefore, by His Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto Him. This is essentially the covenant God makes with his own-JK.

he feedeth among the lilies;

Moody Stuart believes this allegorises the resurrection of Christ in which the disciples seeing what was in the tomb believed and then Christ goes to Galilee to feed his flock where they would see him.
