SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:39 Y luego que David oyó que Nabal era muerto, dijo: Bendito sea el SEÑOR que juzgó la causa de mi afrenta recibida de la mano de Nabal, y detuvo del mal a su siervo; y el SEÑOR ha tornado la malicia de Nabal sobre su propia cabeza. Después envió David a hablar a Abigail, para tomarla por su mujer.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 25:39 Verse 39. To take her to him to wife.] It is likely that he had heard before this that Saul, to cut off all his pretensions to the throne, had married Michal to Phalti; and this justified David in taking Abigail or any other woman; and, according to the then custom, it was not unlawful for David to take several wives. By his marriage with Abigail, it is probable he became possessed of all Nabal's property in Carmel and Maon.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 39. And when David heard that Nabal was dead , etc.] As he soon might, Maon and Carmel not being far from the wilderness where David was: he said, blessed [be] the Lord, that hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal ; not that he rejoiced at the death of Nabal, simply considered, or from a private spirit of revenge; but because of the glory of divine justice, which he had shown to him in vindicating him from the reproach Nabal had cast upon him, and particularly was thankful for what follows; and hath kept his servant from evil ; from slaying Nabal with his own hand, and doing hurt to his family: for the Lord hath returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head ; and upon no other, none of his family suffered but himself, and which was another cause of thankfulness to David; had he been suffered to have done as he in his wrath determined, not only Nabal, but all the males in his house, had been cut off; but now, through the righteous judgment of God, only Nabal suffered, and not any of his family: and David sent and communed with Abigail ; by his messengers to her; or “concerning” her f510 , about marrying her: to take her to him to wife ; for being both a beautiful and wise woman, he thought her a proper person to be his wife; which she might lawfully become, Nabal being dead, and Michal, David’s wife, being taken from him, and given to another man, with whom she lived in adultery; or as divorced by David, as the Jews say, David by the law of God was free from her. These messengers were sent by David at a convenient time, at a proper distance from the death of Nabal; and he chose rather to send messengers than to go himself, lest being denied he should be put to shame, she being a rich widow, and he a poor persecuted man, and that her answer might be entirely free and unawed by him, and that it might appear that she was not taken to him by force; and besides, such a method has been always reckoned most honourable with great personages.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 39-44 - Abigail believed that David would be king over Israel, and greatl esteemed his pious and excellent character. She deemed his proposal of marriage honourable, and advantageous to her, notwithstanding his present difficulties. With great humility, and doubtless agreeably to the customs of those times, she consented, being willing to share his trails. Thus those who join themselves to Christ, must be willing no to suffer with him, believing that hereafter they shall reign with him __________________________________________________________________
