Michal despises King David (1 Chr 15:29-15:29)

“As the Ark of the Covenant of Yahweh came to the city of David, Michal daughter of King Saul looked out of the window. She saw King David leaping and dancing. She despised him in her heart.”

Again, this is almost word for word from 2 Samuel, chapter 6. Michal, King Saul’s daughter who was married to King David, saw him leaping and dancing. She despised him because he had broken her marriage to Paltiel. At one time she had actually helped him to escape from her father in 1 Samuel, chapter 19. This biblical author does not go into the dispute between Michal, his first wife and daughter of King Saul, because she scolded David for his vulgar dancing. She felt that her family, father and brothers, had lost the throne because of King David. He in turn did not have children with her.
