Abstract

Mikal and David, Moral Integrity Versus Political Interest

David, who is a model of true repentance throughout the centuries, has a less than whole moral attitude towards Mikal, his wife and Saul’s daughter. The complexity of both these biblical characters reflect a true love of Mikal and a political interest  of David. Mikal loses something, her parental love, to gain something else, the love of a husband. David only manifests his political interest. The window appears in this context as an archetype of salvation and an image of moral integrity. It  illuminates and delivers. Mikal remains in biblical history as a model of sacrificial love for her husband and a moral landmark of integrity.
