She has mixed her wine This mixing sometimes means to add water, the picture of our Lord on the Cross, when His blood was mixed with water at the piercing of His side, John 19:34.
She has set her table Always something planned or organized. Cf. Gen 22:9; Lev 1:7f, 12; 1 Kings 18:33 = Refs. to the completed work of Christ and the power of the Cross, the Bride Price.
The picture of flesh, wine and a table set reminds us of the communion table where we partake of the body and blood of our Lord, based on His strenuous activity accomplished upon the Cross..
in the payment of the penalty of our sins. And by our partaking of the cup we are reconfirming our belief in Him; our acceptance of the marriage contract He has presented to us, His bride!
