וְלֹא יִחַם לוֹ. אָמְרוּ רַבּוֹתֵינוּ: כָּל הַמְבַזֶּה בְּגָדִים, אֵינוֹ נֶהֶנָה מֵהֶם לַסוֹף, לְפִי שֶׁקָּרַע אֶת כְּנַף הַמְּעִיל לְשָׁאוּל. וּמִדְרַשׁ אַגָּדָה: אָמַר רַב שְׁמוּאֵל בַּר נַחֲמָנִי: כְּשֶׁרָאָה דָוִד אֶת הַמַּלְאָךְ עוֹמֵד בִּירוּשָׁלַיִם וְחַרְבּוֹ בְּיָדוֹ, נִצְטַנֵּן דָּמוֹ מִיִּרְאָתוֹ.
But he was not warmed. Our Rabbis said, “He who disgraces clothing will ultimately be deprived of their pleasures.”1Maseches Berachos 62b. [Dovid’s clothing did not warm him] because he tore off the corner of Shaul’s robe.2See I Shmuel 24:5. The Midrash [Aggadah states], Rabbi Shmuel son of Nachmeni said, that as Dovid saw the angel standing in Yerusholayim with his sword drawn in his hand, his blood became cold from fear.3That terror of that experience remained with Dovid, and from then on he could never again find warmth.
