What kind of look is "Saul-among-the-prophets look"? I came across this expression in a novel.
Then a year ago turned up her brother Martin, penniless and broken, with paralysis upon him. He was a harum-scarum ne’er-do-well. Don’t stare at me with that Saul-among-the-prophets look; he never drank; he would have been a better man if he had.
I checked several dictionaries and found that "Saul among the prophets" means someone who shows an unexpected talent, but this definition does not seem to apply to the above passage. In I Samuel 10:11, people were surprised to find that Saul prophesed with a band of prophets, and cried out "Is Saul also among the prophets?" So I guess that the hearer was surprised to hear a vulgar expression "harum-scarum ne' er-do-well" and showed his suprise on the face, and the speaker, who was an organist in a minster, mockingly called the other's expression "Saul-among-the-prophets look". Does my interpretation sound OK?
