New Defender's Study Bible Notes
3:17 my jewels. The word translated “jewels” only this once is translated “peculiar treasure” three other times. The connotation is that of no ordinary jewels, but of certain very special treasures. To God, those who fear Him, and think on His name, and often speak to one another about Him, are very special people, as dear to Him as a faithful only son of a loving father.
