Jonathan Edwards on the Song of Solomon

No 86 - Canticles 1:5 - "The people of Kedar it seems used to dwell in tents, in more able habitations and lived by feeding of sheep therefore the Church is very fitly represented by these. It's agreeable to many other representations in Scripture where God's people are called His sheep, His flock and Christ and His ministers are called shepherds and the Church is also compared to a tabernacle or tents. It is fitly compared to moveable tents for here we are pilgrims and strangers and we have no abiding place".
