Song of Solomon 5sleep The bride is satisfied with her washed feet while the Bridegroom, His "head filled with dew," and His "locks with the drops of night," is toiling for others. See Luke 6:12; 14:21-23. The state of the bride is not one of sin, but of neglect of service. She is preoccupied with the graces and perfections which she has in Christ through the Spirit ; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Galatians 5:22,23. It is mysticism, unbalanced by the activities of the Christian warfare. Her feet are washed, her hands drop with sweet smelling myrrh; but He has gone on, and now she must seek Him (cf. Luke 2:44,45). I sought him Observe, it is now the Bridegroom Himself who occupies her heart, not His gifts-- myrrh and washed feet John 13:2-9. fitly set Heb. "sitting in fulness;" i.e. fitly placed, and set as a precious stone in the foil of a ring.
