Song of Solomon 2:14 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

8 Hark, my beloved! lo, there he comes!

   Springs over the mountains,

   Bounds over the hills.

The word קול, in the expression דּודי קול, is to be understood of the call of the approaching lover (Bttch.), or only of the sound of his footsteps (Hitz.); it is an interjectional clause (sound of my beloved!), in which kōl becomes an interjection almost the same as our "horch" "hear!". Vid., under Genesis 4:10. זה after הנּה sharpens it, as the demonst. ce in ecce equals en ce. בּא is though of as partic., as is evident from the accenting of the fem. בּאה, e.g., Jeremiah 10:22. דּלּג is the usual word for springing; the parallel קפץ (קפּץ), Aram. קפץ, קפז, signifies properly contrahere (cogn. קמץ, whence Kametz, the drawing together of the mouth, more accurately, of the muscles of the lips), particularly to draw the body together, to prepare it for a spring. In the same manner, at the present day, both in the city and in the Beduin Arab. kamaz, for which also famaz, is used of the springing of a gazelle, which consists in a tossing up of the legs stretched out perpendicularly. 'Antar says similarly, as Shulamith here of the swift-footed schêbûb (D. M. Zeitung, xxii. 362); wahu jegmiz gamazât el-gazâl, it leaps away with the springing of a gazelle.
