39 When David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the Lord who has judged the case of Nabals insult to me, and has kept back his servant from evil; the Lord has returned the evildoing of Nabal upon his own head. Then David sent and wooed Abigail, to make her his wife. 40When Davids servants came to Abigail at Carmel, they said to her, David has sent us to you to take you to him as his wife. 41She rose and bowed down, with her face to the ground, and said, Your servant is a slave to wash the feet of the servants of my lord. 42Abigail got up hurriedly and rode away on a donkey; her five maids attended her. She went after the messengers of David and became his wife.
