Targum on Song of Songs

Targum of Canticles is found in the work Exposition of the Book of Solomon’s Song by J. Gill (2nd Edition 1751) Unfortunately I cannot find an early enough edition on the internet, Gill’s later editions of this commentary took it out.

Later edition can be Found Here, it still references the Targums a lot.
