“Who is this coming up from the wilderness
Like pillars of smoke,
Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense,
With all scented powders of the merchant?”
There is Solomon’s bed.
Sixty mighty men surround it,
Of the mighty men of Israel.”
— Song of Songs 3:6-7
The one who comes up from the wilderness becomes Solomon’s bed, where Solomon can rest. The Lord, as the greater Solomon, enjoys and gains rest in His believers.
