Easton's Bible Dictionary

Madness:

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

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Madness:

In Scripture "madness" is recognized as a derangement proceeding either from weakness and misdirection of intellect or from ungovernable violence of passion. In one passage alone (John 10:20) is madness expressly connected with demoniacal possession by the Jews in their cavil against our Lord; in none is it referred to any physical causes.
