And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

55:6 wings like a dove. One does not solve his problems by fleeing from them. Jonah, whose name means “dove,” learned this lesson by bitterly running from God only to find himself faced with possible death (Jonah 1:3,15).

55:7 wander far off. That was what Jonah attempted to do, as he boarded the ship sailing west and far away from Nineveh (Jonah 1:3).
