1 Samuel 30:4 Meaning and Commentary

1 Samuel 30:4

Then David and the people that [were] with him lifted up their
voice
In doleful shrieks, and loud lamentations:

and wept, until they had no more power to weep;
till nature was quite exhausted, and no moisture left; so the Vulgate Latin version, "till tears failed in them"; they could shed no more.
