CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
3:8 Every man - Is prepared and ready to fight, to prevent those dangers which are frequent in the night season. The night may denote the whole time of this life, which may well be called night in respect of that ignorance and error wherewith it is attended, (as the future life is compared to day) this life being the only time wherein such a guard is necessary.
Put on your sword, O mighty warrior! You are so glorious, so majestic!
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Song of Solomon 3:7
Look, it is Solomon's carriage, surrounded by sixty heroic men, the best of Israel's soldiers.
Song of Solomon 3:9

For I am raising up an army of great nations from the north. They will join forces to attack Babylon, and she will be captured. The enemies' arrows will go straight to the mark; they will not miss!
