New Defender's Study Bible Notes

6:14 girded. Michal’s sarcastic charge that David had “uncovered himself” (II Samuel 6:20) while bringing the ark into Jerusalem was an exaggeration intended to show her displeasure at David’s display of religious emotion. David had evidently divested himself only of his royal vestments to show humility before the Lord, and Michal resented this. Her judgment of childlessness (II Samuel 6:23) was appropriate in this context.
