Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

4 He has brought me into the wine-house,

   And his banner over me is love.

After we have seen the ladies of the palace at the feast, in which wine is presented, and after Solomon, till now absent, has entered the banqueting-chamber (Arab. meglis), by היּין בּית we are not to understand the vineyard, which would be called bēth hǎggephānim or bēth hā'ǎnāvim, as in Acts 1:12, Pesh. the Mount of Olives, bēth zaite.

(Note: In Heb. יין does not denote the vine as a plant, as the Aethiop. wain, whence asada wain, wine-court equals vineyard, which Ewald compares; Dillmann, however, ineptly cites "vine-arbour," and South-Germ.

Like a pennon, the love of the king hovers over her; and so powerful, so surpassing, is the delight of this love which pervades and transports her, that she cries out:
