Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 19: Saul's Murderous Pursuit of David



Saul purposeth to kill David; Jonathan discloseth it; speaketh in his behalf to Saul, who sweareth not to kill him; he returneth to court, 1-7. By reason of his success in a new war, Saul again seeketh to kill him; Michal acquainteth him with it; he flieth; she deceiveth her father, 8-17. David cometh to Samuel at Ramah; Saul sendeth messengers twice to apprehend him; they both prophesy, 18-21. He goeth himself thither, and prophesieth likewise, 22-24.

Matthew Henry: 'Immediately after David's marriage, which one would have hoped would secure him Saul's affection, we find his troubles coming upon him faster than ever and Saul's enmity to him the cause of all. His death was vowed, and four fair escapes of his from the hurtful sword of Saul we have an account of in this chapter: the first by the prudent mediation of Jonathan (verses 1-7), the second by his own quickness (verses 8-10), the third by Michal's fidelity (verses 11-17), the fourth by Samuel's protection, and a change, for the present, wrought upon Saul, verses 18-24. Thus God has many ways of preserving his people. Providence is never at a loss.'
