This word is used in its proper sense in Deuteronomy 28:34 , John 10:20,1 Corinthians 14:23 . It also denotes a reckless state of mind arising from various causes, as over-study (Ecclesiastes 1:17; 2:12 ), blind rage (Luke 6:11 ), or a depraved temper (Ecclesiastes 7:25; 9:3; 2 Peter 2:16 ). David feigned madness (1 Samuel 21:13 ) at Gath because he "was sore afraid of Achish."
