DOEG . An Edomite, and chief of the herdmen [or better, ‘runners,’ reading hâ-râtsîm for hâ-rô‘îm ] of king Saul. When David fled to Nob to Ahimelech (or Ahijah) the priest, Doeg was there ‘detained before the Lord.’ Upon his report Saul ordered Ahimelech and his companions to be slain. The order was carried out by Doeg, when the rest of the king’s guard shrank from obeying it ( 1 Samuel 21:7 ; 1 Samuel 22:9-19 ). Doeg is mentioned in the title of Psalms 52:1-9 .
