Your name is ointment poured forth.

Song of Solomon 1:3

Morning

Your name is ointment poured forth.

Christ … has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. § Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious. § God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow. § In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

If you love Me, keep My commandments. § The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. § The house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. § They realized that they had been with Jesus.

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, who have set Your glory above the heavens! § Immanuel … God with us. § His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. § The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Evening

We who are in this tent groan, being burdened.

Lord, all my desire is before You; and my sighing is not hidden from You. My iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. § O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

The whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. § In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials.

Shortly I must put off my tent. § For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
