The church is compared by our Lord to various things in nature beautiful and lovely, and her several features Jesus draws a resemblance between them and the most engaging objects around. Among the rest he saith, "her nose is as the tower of Lebanon, which looketh towards Damascus." (Song of Song of Solomon 7:4) It is a beautiful metaphor, intimating the quickness of discernment by smell of all that is fragrant in Jesus, and his redemption in mount Lebanon, his gospel church. And not only the discoveries, by the smell of his garments, of righteousness, like the myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, but the looking towards Damascus, implying the extent of that longing for Christ which, like the tower, or an high mountain, may be seen from afar off; so the church is always on the look-out for Jesus, when coming over the mountains of spices and hills of frankincense.
