Thy neck is like the tower of David
builded for an armoury,
whereon there hang a thousand bucklers,
all shields of mighty men.
— Song of Songs 4:4, KJV

The Lord’s praise for the Shulammite’s neck indicates that she is submissive to His authority. The beauty of her neck indicates the submission of her will. As a tower, she does not face earth but heaven.

However, she is not stiff-necked. She submits to Christ as the King and cooperates with the Lord’s will. David as the king built a tower for the Lord; it was for God’s interest. The maiden’s being as a tower that stood before God proves that she is not stiff-necked but obedient.
