Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Sela-hammahlekoth. that is, the rock of divisions. Because, says the Targum, `the heart of the king was divided to go hither and thither.' Here Saul was obliged to separate himself from David, in order to go and oppose the invading Philistines; which deliverance of David was of such a nature as made the Divine interposition fully visible.
