Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 19:24

_ _ 1 Samuel 19:24. Saul prophecies.

_ _ lay down naked — that is, divested of his armor and outer robes — in a state of trance. Thus God, in making the wrath of man to praise Him, preserved the lives of all the prophets, frustrated all the purposes of Saul, and preserved the life of His servant.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 19:18-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 19:24

Lay down — Heb. fell, down upon the earth; for his mind being in an extasy, he had not the use of his senses. God so ordering it, that David might have an opportunity to escape. Naked — That is, stript of his upper garments, as the word naked is often used; and it is here repeated to signify how long he lay in that posture. Day and night — So God kept him as it were in chains, 'till David was got out of his reach. Is Saul — The same proverb which was used before, is here revived, as an evidence of God's wonderful care over David; he made Saul in some sort a prophet, that he mightst make David a king.
