I Samuel 22

Chapter 22

 

v. 6:  I wonder if the phrase, “spear in hand,” is inserted here to allude to the occasions in which Saul has hurled his spear at people thought to be in his close confidence (i.e., David and Jonathan).  I think the author uses it to demonstrate the nervous tension present in Saul’s court, tension that stemmed from the very real possibility that Saul might hurl his spear at any time at any person stranding around him.

 

v. 19:  It is tragically ironic that here Saul carries out the complete annihilation of the city (by means of Doeg).  Compare this with his behavior in 15:9.
