Please come back (Song 6:13-6:13)

Chorus

“Return!

Return!

O Shulammite!

Return!

Return!

Thus we may look upon you.”

At the same time, the chorus or daughters of Jerusalem want this female lover, who is called a Shulammite, to return. They wanted to look at her. This name of Shulammite means pacifier. She may also have been from Shulen or Shunen, a northern Israelite town. There is some dispute whether this and the following verse were the end part of chapter 6 or the beginning of chapter 7. I have chosen to put it at the end of chapter 6 as in the Oxford Bible.
