tn <i>Hebi> “your olives will drop off” (<span class="hebrew">נָשַׁלspan>, <span class="translit">nashalspan>), referring to the olives dropping off before they ripen. Elsewhere <span class="hebrew">זַיִתspan> (<span class="translit">zayitspan>, “olive”) can refer to an olive, the tree branch, the tree, or the grove.

Whether the flowers drop off without being fertilized, or the olives drop off while unripe, the harvest is lost.

tc While MT reads <span class="hebrew">מַרְכְּבוֹתspan> (<span class="translit">mark<sup>esup>votspan>, “chariots”) some medieval Hebrew <span class="smcaps">mssspan> add the locative preposition <span class="hebrew">בspan> (<span class="translit">betspan>) or comparative particle <span class="hebrew">כspan> (<span class="translit">kafspan>) before <span class="hebrew">מַרְכְּבוֹתspan> to producein/on/among/like the chariots.” Most translations supply a preposition: “My soul made me [like] the chariots of Ammi-nadib” (KJV, AV); “My fancy set me [in] a chariot beside my prince” (AT); “My soul set me [over] the chariots of my noble people” (NASB); “My desire set me [among] the chariots of Amminadab” (JPS, NJPS, NIV margin); “My desire set me [among] the royal chariots of my people” (NIV); “My desire set me [among] the chariots of the people of the prince” (NIV margin); “My desire hurled me [on] the chariots of my people, [as their] prince” (JB). R. Gordis offers a creative solution to the enigma of <span class="hebrew">שָׂמַתְנִי מַרְכְּבוֹת עַמִּי־נָדִיבspan> (<span class="translit">samatni mark<sup>esup>vot ʿammi nadivspan>) by redividing the text and revocalizing it as <span class="hebrew">שָׁם תֵּנִי מֹרֶךְ בַּת עַמִּי־נָדִיבspan> (<span class="translit">sham teni morekh bat ʿammi nadivspan>) “There, give me your myrrh, O noblemans daughter!” This involves two steps: (1) He redivides the MTs <span class="hebrew">שָׂמַתְנִיspan> (“it placed me”) into two words <span class="hebrew">שָׁם תֵּנִיspan> (“There, give me”); and (2) He redivides the MTs <span class="hebrew">מַרְכְּבוֹתspan> (“chariots”) into <span class="hebrew">מֹרךְ בַּתspan> (“your myrrh, O daughter”). This approach is supported somewhat by the LXX, which had a difficult time with the line: “There I will give my breasts to you!” The approach of R. Gordis is explained and supported by several factors: (1) He take <span class="hebrew">מֹרךְspan> (“your myrrh”) as a figure (hypocatastasis) for her love (e.g., <data ref="Bible:Song 4:6">4:6data>, <data ref="Bible:Song 4:14">14data>; <data ref="Bible:Song 5:1">5:1data>, <data ref="Bible:Song 5:5">5data>, <data ref="Bible:Song 5:13">13data>). (2) The word-division of <span class="hebrew">בַּת עַמִּי־נָדִיבspan> (“O noble kinsmans daughter”) is paralleled by the nearly identical descriptive <span class="hebrew">בַּת־נָדִיבspan> (“O noblemans daughter”) in <data ref="Bible:Song 7:2">7:2data>. (3) Arabs referred to a girl as <span class="translit">bint el akbarspan> (“noblemans daughter”). (4) The referent of <span class="hebrew">שָׁםspan> (“there”) is the garden/valley mentioned in <data ref="Bible:Song 6:11">6:11data>. (5) This fits into the other literary parallels between <data ref="Bible:Song 6:11-12">6:11-12data> and <data ref="Bible:Song 7:11-13">7:12-14data>, listed as follows: (a) “I went down to the nut grove” (<data ref="Bible:Song 6:11">6:11adata>) andLet us go to the vineyards” (<data ref="Bible:Song 7:12">7:12adata>). (b) “to look for new growth in the valley, to see if the vines had budded, or if the pomegranates were in bloom” (<data ref="Bible:Song 6:11">6:11bdata>) andLet us see if the vines have budded, if the blossoms have opened, if the pomegranates are in bloom” (<data ref="Bible:Song 7:13">7:13adata>). (c) “Theregive me your myrrh = love” (<data ref="Bible:Song 6:12">6:12bdata>) andThere I will give you my love” (<data ref="Bible:Song 7:13">7:13bdata>). See R. Gordis, <i>Song of Songs and Lamentationsi>, 95.
