Michal Despises David


Michal Despises David
James Tissot 1836 – 1902
watercolour — c. 1898
Samuel 6:16 - And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.
David's wife Michal and some other women watch the entry of the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem. David leads the group, singing and dancing, only wearing his undergown. Michal, daughter of king Saul's, thinks that such behaviour is not appropriate for such an important event. Deep in her heart she despises David for it.

She addresses David about his behaviour. He says that he wants to make music in front of God. To him, the matter is closed. Michal would not have any children.
