Song of Solomon 2:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I am the rose of Sharon - Sharon was a very fruitful place, where David's cattle were fed, 1 Chronicles 27:29.

The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus,
it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God.
I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots;
