    Clarke's Commentary on Song of Solomon 1:4

    Draw me - Let me have the full assurance of thy affection.

    We will run after thee - Speaking in the plural through modesty, while still herself is meant.

    The king hath brought me - My spouse is a potentate, a mighty king, no ordinary person.

    Into his chambers - He has favored me with his utmost confidence.

    The upright love thee - The most perfect and accomplished find thee worthy of their highest esteem.

    Barnes' Notes on Song of Solomon 1:4

    The king hath brought me - Made me a member of his household. This is true of every member of the chorus as well as of the bride.

    The upright love thee - Better as in the margin: uprightly do they (i. e., "the virgins" of Sol 1:3) love thee. Compare the use of the same word in Psalm 58:1; Proverbs 23:31.

    Wesley's Notes on Song of Solomon 1:4

    1:4 Draw me - By thy grace and holy spirit. We - Both I, thy spouse, and the virgins, my companions. And this change of numbers teaches us that the spouse is one great body, consisting of many members. Run - Will follow thee readily, chearfully, and swiftly. The king - Christ, the king of his church, hath answered my prayer. Chambers - Where I may freely converse with him, and enjoy him. He hath taken me into intimate communion with himself. Remember - This shall be the matter of our thoughts and discourses.
