1 Samuel 25
Samuel dieth: David goeth to Paran. The characters of Nabal and Abigail. David sendeth a message to Nabal. Provoked by Nabal's churlish answer, he setteth forth to destroy him. Abigail is informed thereof: she meeteth David with a present, and entreateth his pardon. David blesseth God and her for so timely an interposition, and dismisseth her courteously. Nabal, stricken with her relation of the matter, dieth. David again blesseth God, and marrieth Abigail and Ahinoam. His wife Michal is given to Phalti.
