Everything said so far indicates the beauty of the human bride. But literally this parable signifies the beauty of the spiritual bride during the time of the New Testament. (Nicholas of Lyra) These are words from the Lord who gives a spiritual description of the Church from both Jews and Gentiles after the conversion of the Jews who had been faithless. (St. Bede)

Lips. Septuagint, "sufficient for my lips and teeth. "(Haydock) The wine in that country was very thick, when kept a long time. It here denotes charity, or the gospel truths, Luke v. 37., and Acts ii. 13. Hebrew, "causing the lips of them who sleep to speak "(Calmet) as the apostles did, in transports of zeal. (Theodoret) Yet the reading of the Septuagint, Aquila, seems preferable. (Calmet)
