behold, he cometh
Song of Solomon 2:8
2:8 behold, he cometh. Although the bride is still speaking, the occasion is different. She is no longer in Jerusalem, but perhaps in their country palace, and her beloved is away. But then she cries: “Behold, he cometh,” and she rises to meet him, as she sees him rapidly approaching. This perhaps speaks, in type, of the signs of the imminent return of Christ, after His long absence (compare Matthew 25:6; 24:33).
