SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:24 Y él también se desnudó sus vestidos, y profetizó también delante de Samuel, y cayó desnudo todo aquel día y toda aquella noche. De aquí se dijo: Â¿También Saúl entre los profetas?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 19:24 Verse 24. He stripped off his clothes] Threw off his royal robes or military dress, retaining only his tunic; and continued so all that day and all that night, uniting with the sons of the prophets in prayers, singing praises, and other religious exercises, which were unusual to kings and warriors; and this gave rise to the saying, Is Saul also among the prophets? By bringing both him and his men thus under a Divine influence, God prevented them from injuring the person of David. See the notes on chap. x. 6, &c.; and see my sermon on The Christian Prophet and his Work.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 24. And he stripped off his clothes also , etc.] Not all his clothes, but his upper garments, as men in such circumstances used to do, as the prophets sometimes did, and as it seems his messengers had done; according to Jarchi, R. Isaiah, and others f404 , he stripped himself of his royal robes, and put on the habit of the scholars, the disciples, and sons of the prophets: and prophesied before Samuel in like manner , as the messengers had done, singing such like songs, or foretelling such like things as they did; he and they speaking not of themselves, but as they were moved by the Holy Spirit of prophecy; for such gifts have sometimes been bestowed on men that were destitute of the grace of God, as Balaam, Caiaphas, and others; and lay down : or “fell down” f405 , as persons in an ecstasy or trance: and lay naked all that day, and all that night ; not entirely naked, both without his upper garment or royal robes, or else his armour; so an unarmed man is said to be naked, though otherwise he has his clothes on: thus Gelon having conquered the Carthaginians, and made himself master of all Sicily, went into the forum “naked” (i.e. unarmed), and declared he would restore the government to the citizens, wherefore a naked statue for him was erected in the temple of Juno f406 ; so Quinctius Cincinnatus was found ploughing naked f407 , who cannot be supposed to be without any clothes on him. Jarchi, from Menachem, reports, that he had heard from an Arabian, that the word the Targum makes use of for “naked”, signifies, in the Arabic language, one that is furious or mad, as persons in an ecstasy, or under a prophetic spirit, sometimes seemed to be; now Saul was kept and held in such circumstances a whole day and night, that David might have an opportunity of making his escape, and getting at such a distance from him that he could not overtake him: wherefore they say, [is] Saul also among the prophets ? this became a common saying, a proverbial expression, at least was now revived and observed with admiration; that Saul, who had behaved himself in so ill a manner, as an enemy to so good a man, should be found among the prophets of the Lord, and prophesying as they did.
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 __________________________________________________________________
