From then on David lived a very hard life in the wilderness He slept in the forest or in caves or in the. mountains hiding from King Saul Wherever he went Saul chased after him and who ever helped David was. in terrible trouble Soon people heard about David hiding from King Saul and four hundred men joined to help. him Although they were constantly on the run from King Saul and his army David and his men often had. battles with the Philistines who were constantly raiding Israel. While they were living in the Desert of Maon David s men helped the local shepherds They would protect. their flocks from tribes who often raided in the region In exchange for this protection the local people would. give David s men food It was a good deal for both the shepherds and for David s men. One man whose sheep they protected was Nabal Nabal was a very rich man in Israel He had 3 000 sheep. and 1 000 goats He had many shepherds who worked for him Nabal knew a lot about sheep but he was. rude and mean David s men had been very careful not to mistreat Nabal s workers nor to allow any animals. from Nabal s flocks to be stolen Now Nabal had a wife named Abigail She was an intelligent and beautiful. One day David heard that Nabal and his herdsmen were shearing sheep Shearing was a festive time of. thanksgiving when people usually shared what they had So David sent ten of his men to Nabal with a. message David s men kindly said Greetings to you Your shepherds were with us at Carmel We gave them. lots of favors and protected your sheep Since it is a festive time of sharing would you please give us some. food We are tired and hungry Whatever you desire would be good. Do you think Nabal was pleased to give them something to eat No Nabal said Who is this David Why. should I take my bread and meat that I have slaughtered for the feast and give it to men who have come from. who knows where Nabal said unkind things to David s men and was very selfish and cruel Nabal refused to. give David and his men any food Rather than show thanks for the good David s men had done toward him. Nabal made a bad choice He even pretended not to know who David was Nabal had no godly wisdom. When the messengers returned and told David what Nabal said David called his men to put on their swords. David was really mad He decided to pay back Nabal s unfriendliness by killing him and all his workers He. took 400 of his men and headed for Nabal s land, One of Nabal s servants knew that his master had done a very wicked thing so he quickly rode to tell Nabal s. wife Abigail about the problem He said David sent messengers from the desert to give our master a. greeting but he hurled insults at them All the time we had our flocks in the desert David and his men were. very good to us They protected our flocks from the raiders so that none of the sheep went missing Now your. husband Nabal is bringing disaster upon all of us He is such a wicked man that no one can talk to him. Abigail lost no time She knew that Nabal was a drunken unreasonable man and she could not talk to him. She did not want David in his anger to kill all the servants So she took two hundred loaves of bread two. skins of wine five dressed sheep five bushels of grain a hundred raisin cakes and two hundred pounds of. pressed figs and loaded them on donkeys Then she told one of her servants Go on ahead I ll follow you. Just as Abigail came riding her donkey over the mountain there was David and his men coming down the. valley toward her David had just said It has just been useless to protect his fellow s property in the desert. He has paid me evil for good May God punish David s enemies I am not going to leave one of his men alive. by morning, When Abigail saw David she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David She bowed down at. David s feet and said My lord I am Abigail the wife of Nabal Let any blame be on me Please let me speak. to you and hear what I say Don t pay any attention to my wicked husband Nabal He is just like his name He. is a fool Please know that I did not know that your servants had come to our land. So far you have not killed any of the servants Please let all your enemies be like my foolish husband Nabal. Take these gifts that I bring and give them to your men Forgive me for not knowing about your request You. are a great fighter for the Lord s battles Don t do any wrongdoing and cause God s judgment to fall on you. because you have taken revenge Let God pursue your enemies and you will have no guilt when you become. the King of Israel, OT9 5 David and Abigail Beverly Wilson 2019. David was amazed at Abigail s words and he instantly changed his mind about attacking Nabal and his men. He praised Abigail for her wisdom and took the wonderful gifts she had brought He told her May the Lord. bless you for your good judgment and for keeping me from taking revenge You can go home with a peaceful. mind I ll listen to your advice and do as you ask, When Abigail returned home from meeting with David her foolish husband Nabal was in the house holding a. banquet like that of a king He was very drunk So Abigail told him nothing until the next morning when he was. sober When Nabal heard about the great danger that his household had narrowly escaped his heart failed. within him He was paralyzed and ten days later Nabal died Abigail was right David did not need to take. revenge on Nabal God took care of him in His own way and in His own time. Later when David heard that Nabal had died he asked Abigail to be his wife Abigail gladly consented How. glad David was now that this wise gracious woman had not only protected her household but that she had. kept him from acting so foolishly in anger, Abigail kept David from killing a bunch of people and she saved her foolish husband from David s sword too. Abigail used God s wisdom She made a good choice and saved everyone from a terrible situation Nabal. was a rude mean selfish foolish man He did not use godly wisdom by refusing to share his food with David. and his men His life ended in a disaster because he did not choose to serve God We want to be like Abigail. and use good wisdom in solving our problems Abigail was rewarded for showing godly wisdom.
