Bible Commentary

Song of Solomon 2:4 is a Bible verse that gives us a mental picture of what God’s love looks like in the spiritual realm.

If we have submitted to Jesus Christ as Lord, then He leads us to the banqueting house—His Spiritual House, which is full of the majesty of the Lord. It is a place in our minds and souls where He dwells within us by His Holy Spirit.

There are times when He gives us glimpses of the marvel and majesty of His House, but it is mostly a gradual revelation as we travel hand-in-hand with Him each day.


Notice that in Song of Solomon 2:4, it is not referred to as a house, but a banqueting house. “Banqueting” in Hebrew means: to effervesce; wine; intoxication.

Awareness of His intimate Presence is a heady intoxication, a spiritual one, and far sweeter than the effects on the body from drinking wine. Ephesians 5:18 says, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”

Like a bride and groom celebrating their union at the wedding reception, the Lord calls His bride to the banqueting house, where the Groom, Jesus Christ, rescues and gathers His beloved bride—the church—into His waiting arms.


Revelation 19:9 (NASB) says, “Then he *said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he *said to me, “These are true words of God.” 

The Lord’s House is filled with His Spirit and when we are there in His Presence, we are intoxicated by it. He brought me to the banqueting house. He is faithful to lead us there as we are faithful to follow Him.
