We all know of times in our lives when we just say to God, "I'm going to take control of this situation. I know what's best for my life." So in turn God allows us the free will and says "OK... the wheel is yours." And just like when we are young thinking we know best but we injure ourselves or someone else our instinct says, "Dad I messed up will you help me?" God answers that call, telling us that He will take care of it. The lesson will be hard and the answer may not be right away in our minds but The Father does have everything under control and will never forsake His children.
Awkward question but clearly God is asking us to consider this as He here describes His Bride and as Matthew Henry pointed out these seven attributes line up with the seven anointings in Isaiah 11with the seventh being a delight in the fear of the Lord. All this is discussed as well as Rashi the great Jewish commentator considered these two twins to be the two tablets as they mirror each other and as promised here is his commentary .... "the twins of a gazelle: exactly corresponding in one measure; the five commandments on this one (side of the Tablets, correspond to) the five commandments on the other (side of the Tablets), each commandment corresponding to a commandment. “I [am the Lord your God]” corresponds to “You shall not murder,” for the murderer diminishes the semblance of the Holy One, blessed be He. “You shall not have [any other gods before Me]” corresponds to “You shall not commit adultery,” for one who commits idolatry is like an adulterous woman, who takes strangers instead of her husband. “You shall not hear [the name of the Lord your God in vain]” corresponds to “You shall not steal,” for one who steals will ultimately swear falsely. “Remember [the Sabbath day to keep it holy]” corresponds to “You shall not bear [false witness against your neighbor],” for one who profanes the Sabbath testifies falsely against his Creator, saying that He did not rest on the Sabbath of Creation. “Honor [your father and mother]” corresponds to “You shall not covet,” for one who covets is destined to beget a son who slights him and honors one who is not his father."
Song of Songs 4:4 Thy neck like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men. Rashi shares some powerful insight into the makeup of the neck of the Bride of Christ... The word in KJV translated shield is actually a quiver - Note the Picture attached and see if you see the quiver.
As the church reflects Christ's Seven fold anointing this description of the third attribute gives us more understanding of the anointing of "Counsel". Listen as we sink our teeth into this. With a story from our Special Needs class to Illustrate.

Who are the daughters of Zion? Who is Jesus Mother? What was the day of His espousals? How did is mother crown him and what did that crown look like. We dig into these today. References: Psalms 45:11, Song 5:2, Is 51: and Matt 12:48-50
As Matthew Henry points out - The materials keep getting better - Silver, Gold,Purple, then Love- The amazing thing that Jesus the love of the daughters of Jerusalem through the ages to pave our hearts. I also spend some time on the meaning of Jerusalem and daughters in this episode.

If we go to the sacred Ark without the right heart like David's friend we can die, the time and place and person have to be RIGHT. Such an amazing verse to study.
After we pass those who point us to Jesus we still have to do the real connecting and holding on to Jesus - One On One - Then where do we go all the way back to our very birth as our identity our house literally changes address. Much to share and ponder in this verse.
As Genesis 1 showed us "It was evening then it was morning" Our heroin is going about the city when she is found by the Watchmen and not unlike Mary at the tomb asks - "Have you seen my Lord". When did the watchman find you? I share my story and John Bunyan's quote - "That which is last, Lasts!"
As the second verse in the gimmel section of the 119 Psalm we are looking for Jesus - "Open our eyes to behold wondrous things out of Thy law" - We can find God in His Garden - His Word
