1 Samuel 16:20 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

David's Introduction to the Court of Saul. - 1 Samuel 16:14. With the rejection of Saul on the part of God, the Spirit of Jehovah had departed from him, and an evil spirit from Jehovah had come upon him, who filled him with fear and anguish. The "evil spirit from Jehovah" which came into Saul in the place of the Spirit of Jehovah, was not merely an inward feeling of depression at the rejection announced to him, which grew into melancholy, and occasionally broke out in passing fits of insanity, but a higher evil power, which took possession of him, and not only deprived him of his peace of mind, but stirred up the feelings, ideas, imagination, and thoughts of his soul to such an extent that at times it drove him even into madness. This demon is called "an evil spirit (coming) from Jehovah," because Jehovah had sent it as a punishment, or "an evil spirit of God" (Elohim: 1 Samuel 16:15), or briefly "a spirit of God" (Elohim), or "the evil spirit" (1 Samuel 16:23, compare 1 Samuel 18:10), as being a supernatural, spiritual, evil power; but never "the Spirit of Jehovah," because this is the Spirit proceeding from the holy God, which works upon men as the spirit of strength, wisdom, and knowledge, and generates and fosters the spiritual or divine life. The expression רעה יהוה רוּח (1 Samuel 19:9) is an abbreviated form for יהוה מאת רעה רוּח, and is to be interpreted according.
