25:1 And Samuel [H8050] died [H4191] ; and all the Israelites [H3478] were gathered together [H6908] , and lamented [H5594] him, and buried [H6912] him in his house [H1004] at Ramah [H7414] . And David [H1732] arose [H6965] , and went down [H3381] to the wilderness [H4057] of Paran [H6290] .

25:2 And [there was] a man [H376] in Maon [H4584] , whose possessions [H4639] [were] in Carmel [H3760] ; and the man [H376] [was] very [H3966] great [H1419] , and he had three [H7969] thousand [H505] sheep [H6629] , and a thousand [H505] goats [H5795] : and he was shearing [H1494] his sheep [H6629] in Carmel [H3760] .(possessions: or, business)

25:3 Now the name [H8034] of the man [H376] [was] Nabal [H5037] ; and the name [H8034] of his wife [H802] Abigail [H26] : and [she was] a woman [H802] of good [H2896] understanding [H7922] , and of a beautiful [H3303] countenance [H8389] : but the man [H376] [was] churlish [H7186] and evil [H7451] in his doings [H4611] ; and he [was] of the house of Caleb [H3614] .

25:4 And David [H1732] heard [H8085] in the wilderness [H4057] that Nabal [H5037] did shear [H1494] his sheep [H6629] .

25:5 And David [H1732] sent out [H7971] ten [H6235] young men [H5288] , and David [H1732] said [H559] unto the young men [H5288] , Get you up [H5927] to Carmel [H3760] , and go [H935] to Nabal [H5037] , and greet [H7592] [H7965] him in my name [H8034] :(greet: Heb. ask him in my name of peace)

25:6 And thus shall ye say [H559] to him that liveth [H2416] [in prosperity], Peace [H7965] [be] both to thee, and peace [H7965] [be] to thine house [H1004] , and peace [H7965] [be] unto all that thou hast.

25:7 And now I have heard [H8085] that thou hast shearers [H1494] : now thy shepherds [H7462] which were with us, we hurt [H3637] them not, neither was there ought [H3972] missing [H6485] unto them, all the while [H3117] they were in Carmel [H3760] .(hurt: Heb. shamed)

25:8 Ask [H7592] thy young men [H5288] , and they will shew [H5046] thee. Wherefore let the young men [H5288] find [H4672] favour [H2580] in thine eyes [H5869] : for we come [H935] in a good [H2896] day [H3117] : give [H5414] , I pray thee, whatsoever cometh [H4672] to thine hand [H3027] unto thy servants [H5650] , and to thy son [H1121] David [H1732] .

25:9 And when David's [H1732] young men [H5288] came [H935] , they spake [H1696] to Nabal [H5037] according to all those words [H1697] in the name [H8034] of David [H1732] , and ceased [H5117] .(ceased: Heb. rested)

25:10 And Nabal [H5037] answered [H6030] David's [H1732] servants [H5650] , and said [H559] , Who [is] David [H1732] ? and who [is] the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] ? there be many [H7231] servants [H5650] now a days [H3117] that break away [H6555] every man [H376] from [H6440] his master [H113] .

25:11 Shall I then take [H3947] my bread [H3899] , and my water [H4325] , and my flesh [H2878] that I have killed [H2873] for my shearers [H1494] , and give [H5414] [it] unto men [H582] , whom I know [H3045] not whence they [be]?(flesh: Heb. slaughter)

25:12 So David's [H1732] young men [H5288] turned [H2015] their way [H1870] , and went again [H7725] , and came [H935] and told [H5046] him all those sayings [H1697] .

25:13 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto his men [H582] , Gird ye on [H2296] every man [H376] his sword [H2719] . And they girded on [H2296] every man [H376] his sword [H2719] ; and David [H1732] also girded on [H2296] his sword [H2719] : and there went up [H5927] after [H310] David [H1732] about four [H702] hundred [H3967] men [H376] ; and two hundred [H3967] abode [H3427] by the stuff [H3627] .

25:14 But one [H259] of the young men [H5288] told [H5046] Abigail [H26] , Nabal's [H5037] wife [H802] , saying [H559] , Behold, David [H1732] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] out of the wilderness [H4057] to salute [H1288] our master [H113] ; and he railed [H5860] on them.(railed: Heb. flew upon them)

25:15 But the men [H582] [were] very [H3966] good [H2896] unto us, and we were not hurt [H3637] , neither missed [H6485] we any thing [H3972] , as long as [H3117] we were conversant [H1980] with them, when we were in the fields [H7704] :(hurt: Heb. shamed)

25:16 They were a wall [H2346] unto us both by night [H3915] and day [H3119] , all the while [H3117] we were with them keeping [H7462] the sheep [H6629] .

25:17 Now therefore know [H3045] and consider [H7200] what thou wilt do [H6213] ; for evil [H7451] is determined [H3615] against our master [H113] , and against all his household [H1004] : for he [is such] a son [H1121] of Belial [H1100] , that [a man] cannot speak [H1696] to him.

25:18 Then Abigail [H26] made haste [H4116] , and took [H3947] two hundred [H3967] loaves [H3899] , and two [H8147] bottles [H5035] of wine [H3196] , and five [H2568] sheep [H6629] ready dressed [H6213] , and five [H2568] measures [H5429] of parched [H7039] [corn], and an hundred [H3967] clusters of raisins [H6778] , and two hundred [H3967] cakes [H1690] of figs, and laid [H7760] [them] on asses [H2543] .(clusters: or, lumps)

25:19 And she said [H559] unto her servants [H5288] , Go on [H5674] before [H6440] me; behold, I come [H935] after [H310] you. But she told [H5046] not her husband [H376] Nabal [H5037] .

25:20 And it was [so, as] she rode [H7392] on the ass [H2543] , that she came down [H3381] by the covert [H5643] of the hill [H2022] , and, behold, David [H1732] and his men [H582] came down [H3381] against [H7125] her; and she met [H6298] them.

25:21 Now David [H1732] had said [H559] , Surely in vain [H8267] have I kept [H8104] all that this [H2088] [fellow] hath in the wilderness [H4057] , so that nothing [H3972] was missed [H6485] of all that [pertained] unto him: and he hath requited [H7725] me evil [H7451] for good [H2896] .

25:22 So [H3541] and more [H3254] also do [H6213] God [H430] unto the enemies [H341] of David [H1732] , if I leave [H7604] of all that [pertain] to him by [H5704] the morning [H1242] light [H216] any that pisseth [H8366] against the wall [H7023] .

25:23 And when Abigail [H26] saw [H7200] David [H1732] , she hasted [H4116] , and lighted off [H3381] the ass [H2543] , and fell [H5307] before [H639] David [H1732] on her face [H6440] , and bowed [H7812] herself to the ground [H776] ,

25:24 And fell [H5307] at his feet [H7272] , and said [H559] , Upon me, my lord [H113] , [upon] me [let this] iniquity [H5771] [be]: and let thine handmaid [H519] , I pray thee, speak [H1696] in thine audience [H241] , and hear [H8085] the words [H1697] of thine handmaid [H589] .(audience: Heb. ears)

25:25 Let [H7760] not my lord [H113] , I pray thee, regard [H3820] this man [H376] of Belial [H1100] , [even] Nabal [H5037] : for as his name [H8034] [is], so [is] he; Nabal [H5037] [is] his name [H8034] , and folly [H5039] [is] with him: but I thine handmaid [H519] saw [H7200] not the young men [H5288] of my lord [H113] , whom thou didst send [H7971] .(regard: Heb. lay it to his heart)(Nabal: that is, Fool)

25:26 Now therefore, my lord [H113] , [as] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , and [as] thy soul [H5315] liveth [H2416] , seeing the LORD [H3068] hath withholden [H4513] thee from coming [H935] to [shed] blood [H1818] , and from avenging [H3467] thyself with thine own hand [H3027] , now let thine enemies [H341] , and they that seek [H1245] evil [H7451] to my lord [H113] , be as Nabal [H5037] .(avenging: Heb. saving thyself)

25:27 And now this blessing [H1293] which thine handmaid [H8198] hath brought [H935] unto my lord [H113] , let it even be given [H5414] unto the young men [H5288] that follow [H1980] [H7272] my lord [H113] .(blessing: or, present)(follow: Heb. walk at the feet of, etc)

25:28 I pray thee, forgive [H5375] the trespass [H6588] of thine handmaid [H519] : for the LORD [H3068] will certainly [H6213] make [H6213] my lord [H113] a sure [H539] house [H1004] ; because my lord [H113] fighteth [H3898] the battles [H4421] of the LORD [H3068] , and evil [H7451] hath not been found [H4672] in thee [all] thy days [H3117] .

25:29 Yet a man [H120] is risen [H6965] to pursue [H7291] thee, and to seek [H1245] thy soul [H5315] : but the soul [H5315] of my lord [H113] shall be bound [H6887] in the bundle [H6872] of life [H2416] with the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] ; and the souls [H5315] of thine enemies [H341] , them shall he sling out [H7049] , [as out] of the middle [H8432] [H3709] of a sling [H7050] .(as out: Heb. in the midst of the bought of a sling)

25:30 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD [H3068] shall have done [H6213] to my lord [H113] according to all the good [H2896] that he hath spoken [H1696] concerning thee, and shall have appointed [H6680] thee ruler [H5057] over Israel [H3478] ;

25:31 That this shall be no grief [H6330] unto thee, nor offence [H4383] of heart [H3820] unto my lord [H113] , either that thou hast shed [H8210] blood [H1818] causeless [H2600] , or that my lord [H113] hath avenged [H3467] himself: but when the LORD [H3068] shall have dealt well [H3190] with my lord [H113] , then remember [H2142] thine handmaid [H519] .(no grief: Heb. no staggering, or, stumbling)

25:32 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Abigail [H26] , Blessed [H1288] [be] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , which sent [H7971] thee this day [H3117] to meet [H7125] me:

25:33 And blessed [H1288] [be] thy advice [H2940] , and blessed [H1288] [be] thou, which hast kept [H3607] me this day [H3117] from coming [H935] to [shed] blood [H1818] , and from avenging [H3467] myself with mine own hand [H3027] .

25:34 For in very deed [H199] , [as] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] liveth [H2416] , which hath kept me back [H4513] from hurting [H7489] thee, except [H3884] thou hadst hasted [H4116] and come [H935] to meet [H7125] me, surely there had not been left [H3498] unto Nabal [H5037] by the morning [H1242] light [H216] any that pisseth [H8366] against the wall [H7023] .

25:35 So David [H1732] received [H3947] of her hand [H3027] [that] which she had brought [H935] him, and said [H559] unto her, Go up [H5927] in peace [H7965] to thine house [H1004] ; see [H7200] , I have hearkened [H8085] to thy voice [H6963] , and have accepted [H5375] thy person [H6440] .

25:36 And Abigail [H26] came [H935] to Nabal [H5037] ; and, behold, he held a feast [H4960] in his house [H1004] , like the feast [H4960] of a king [H4428] ; and Nabal's [H5037] heart [H3820] [was] merry [H2896] within him, for he [was] very [H3966] drunken [H7910] : wherefore she told [H5046] him nothing [H1697] , less [H6996] or more [H1419] , until the morning [H1242] light [H216] .

25:37 But it came to pass in the morning [H1242] , when the wine [H3196] was gone out [H3318] of Nabal [H5037] , and his wife [H802] had told [H5046] him these things [H1697] , that his heart [H3820] died [H4191] within [H7130] him, and he became [as] a stone [H68] .

25:38 And it came to pass about ten [H6235] days [H3117] [after], that the LORD [H3068] smote [H5062] Nabal [H5037] , that he died [H4191] .

25:39 And when David [H1732] heard [H8085] that Nabal [H5037] was dead [H4191] , he said [H559] , Blessed [H1288] [be] the LORD [H3068] , that hath pleaded [H7378] the cause [H7379] of my reproach [H2781] from the hand [H3027] of Nabal [H5037] , and hath kept [H2820] his servant [H5650] from evil [H7451] : for the LORD [H3068] hath returned [H7725] the wickedness [H7451] of Nabal [H5037] upon his own head [H7218] . And David [H1732] sent [H7971] and communed [H1696] with Abigail [H26] , to take [H3947] her to him to wife [H802] .

25:40 And when the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] were come [H935] to Abigail [H26] to Carmel [H3760] , they spake [H1696] unto her, saying [H559] , David [H1732] sent [H7971] us unto thee, to take [H3947] thee to him to wife [H802] .

25:41 And she arose [H6965] , and bowed [H7812] herself on [her] face [H639] to the earth [H776] , and said [H559] , Behold, [let] thine handmaid [H519] [be] a servant [H8198] to wash [H7364] the feet [H7272] of the servants [H5650] of my lord [H113] .

25:42 And Abigail [H26] hasted [H4116] , and arose [H6965] , and rode [H7392] upon an ass [H2543] , with five [H2568] damsels [H5291] of hers that went [H1980] after [H7272] her; and she went [H3212] after [H310] the messengers [H4397] of David [H1732] , and became his wife [H802] .(after her: Heb. at her feet)

25:43 David [H1732] also took [H3947] Ahinoam [H293] of Jezreel [H3157] ; and they were also both [H8147] of them his wives [H802] .

25:44 But Saul [H7586] had given [H5414] Michal [H4324] his daughter [H1323] , David's [H1732] wife [H802] , to Phalti [H6406] the son [H1121] of Laish [H3919] , which [was] of Gallim [H1554] .
