The Two Commentaries of Tanchum Yerushalmi- Text and translation
On my bed at night I looked for the one my soul loves, I looked for him but could not find him.
[The expression]: On my bed during the nights (Song 3:1) [designates] the sleep of the soul in the body, paralleled to the night because of its thickness, darkness and the absence of light or transparency. [The expression]: I looked for him but could not find him (Song 3:1) [means that] as long as she is incapable of relinquishing the body and what is related to it, its desires and the disparity in its needs the soul will not be able to see the intellect. Indeed, [body and intellect] are two opposite realities that cannot meet.
