SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:11 Â¶ Saúl envió luego mensajeros a casa de David para que lo guardasen, y lo matasen a la mañana. Mas Mical su mujer lo descubrió a David, diciendo: Si no salvares tu vida esta noche, mañana serás muerto.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 19:11 Verse 11. To slay him in the morning] When they might be able to distinguish between him and Michal his wife; for, had they attempted his life in the night season, there would have been some danger to Michal's life. Besides, Saul wished to represent him as a traitor; and consequently an attack upon him was justifiable at any time, even in the fullest daylight.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And Saul sent messengers unto David’s house , etc.] Supposing that he was gone thither; where this was is not said, very likely in Gibeah, where Saul lived: to watch him ; that he might not get out from thence in the night: and to slay him in the morning ; the reason why he did not order them to break into the house, and slay him at once, but wait till morning, seems to be, lest should he be alarmed by their breaking in, he might take the advantage of the night, and easily escape, or another person through mistake might be slain for him; and therefore, that they might be sure of him, they were to watch till it was broad daylight, when they could not well miss him. Josephus says, the orders to watch him until morning were, that he might be taken and brought to a court of judicature, and be condemned and put to death, which was usually held in a morning; but Saul’s orders to the messengers were to put him to death themselves, and he had no notion of dealing with him according to a formal process of judgment: and Michal, David’s wife, told him, saying, if thou save not thy life tonight, tomorrow thou shalt be slain ; meaning, if he did not take the benefit and advantage of the night to make his escape, he would not be able to do it in the morning; the house being so beset, as she perceived, by persons whom she might suspect were sent by Saul to destroy him, knowing the ill will her father bore to him, or a messenger at the same time might be dispatched to her, either from her brother Jonathan, or from one of her friends at court, acquainting her with the design against David, and the danger he was in. Upon this occasion David penned the fifty ninth psalm, (see Psalm 59:1-17).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 11-24 - Michal's stratagem to gain time till David got to a distance wa allowable, but her falsehood had not even the plea of necessity to excuse it, and manifests that she was not influenced by the same spiri of piety which had dictated Jonathan's language to Saul. In flying to Samuel, David made God his refuge. Samuel, as a prophet, was best able to advise him what to do in this day of distress. He met with littl rest or satisfaction in Saul's court, therefore went to seek it is Samuel's church. What little pleasure is to be had in this world, thos have who live a life of communion with God; to that David returned in the time of trouble. So impatient was Saul after David's blood, s restless against him, that although baffled by one providence afte another, he could not see that David was under the special protectio of God. And when God will take this way to protect David, even Sau prophesies. Many have great gifts, yet no grace; they may prophesy in Christ's name, yet are disowned by him. Let us daily seek for renewin grace, which shall be in us as a well of water springing up int everlasting life. Let us cleave to truth and holiness with full purpos of heart. In every danger and trouble, let us seek protection, comfort and direction in God's ordinances __________________________________________________________________
