June 5, 2022 – 1 Samuel 25 – David and Abigail

When David’s messengers to Nabal, a wealthy but foolish local herder, are rebuffed, he prepares to avenge his honor with an attack. But Nabal’s wife, Abigail, intercedes, cooling David’s anger and attracting his eye with her beauty and diplomacy. Nabal is struck dumb and immobilized when she explains the situation to him, and he dies 10 days later. David then takes Abigail as his wife.
