Note: I thought once that perhaps this servant could have been prophetically the Lord Jesus, but did He not say "forgive them Father for they know not what they do"? Neither can I recall a time that David would have contemplated this not even with Saul or Absalom. I am most puzzled by this character if not ficticious representation of a devout man unjustly outcast/poor and needy.
