6:10ו׳:י׳
1 א

מִי זֹאת הַנִּשְׁקָפָה. עָלֵינוּ? מִמָּקוֹם הַגָּבֹהַּ לַנָּמוּךְ קְרוּיָה הַשְׁקָפָה. כָּךְ בֵּית הַמִּקְדָּשׁ גָּבֹהַּ מִכָּל אֲרָצוֹת:

Who is this that gazes down. Upon us, [looking] from a high place to a low place is called “הַשְׁקָפָה.” So is the Beis Hamikdosh higher than all lands.21See Maseches Kiddushin 69a.

2 ב

כְּמוֹ שָׁחַר. הוֹלֵךְ וּמֵאִיר מְעַט מְעַט, כָּךְ הָיוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּבַיִת שֵׁנִי. בַּתְּחִלָּה זְרֻבָּבֶל פַּחַת יְהוּדָה וְלֹא מֶלֶךְ, וְהָיוּ מְשֻׁעְבָּדִים לְפָרַס וּלְיָוָן, וְאַחַר כָּךְ נִצְּחוּם בֵּית חַשְׁמוֹנַאי וְנַעֲשׂוּ מְלָכִים:

Like the [breaking] dawn. Which gradually illuminates little by little; so were the [Bnei] Yisroel during the second Beis Hamikdosh. In the beginning, Zerubavel was the governor of Yehudah, but not a king, and they were subjugated to Persia and to Greece, but afterwards, the house of Chashmonai defeated them and they became kings.

3 ג

אֲיֻמָּה כַּנִּדְגָּלוֹת. אֲיֻמָּה בְגִבּוֹרֶיהָ כְּנִדְגָּלוֹת שֶׁל מְלָכִים. כָּל זֶה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מְקַלֵּס אֶת כְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל. "יָפָה אַתְּ רַעְיָתִי כְּתִרְצָה", וְכָל הָעִנְיָן עַד כַּאן:

Awesome as the hosts [of angels]. Awesome with her mighty men like the bannered legions of kings. All this the Holy One, Blessed Is He, praises the congregation of Yisroel, [beginning with] “You are beautiful, my beloved, as Tirtzah,”22Above, verse 4. and the entire section until here.
