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.

1 Samuel 30:4 In-Context

2 They had carried off the women and children and everyone else but without killing anyone.
3 When David and his men saw the ruins and realized what had happened to their families,
4 they wept until they could weep no more.
5 David’s two wives, Ahinoam from Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal from Carmel, were among those captured.
6 David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the LORD his God.
