Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 15:29

_ _ Michal ... saw ... David dancing and playing — His movements would be slow and solemn, suitable to the grave and solemn character of the music. Though his royal robes were laid aside, he was attired like the other officials, showing a becoming humility in the immediate presence of God. The feelings manifested by Michal were only an ebullition of spleen from a proud and passionate woman.
