    25:1 And Samuel 8050 died 4191 8799; and all the Israelites 3478 were gathered together 6908 8735, and lamented 5594 8799 him, and buried 6912 8799 him in his house 1004 at Ramah 7414. And David 1732 arose 6965 8799, and went down 3381 8799 to the wilderness 4057 of Paran 6290.

    25:2 And [there was] a man 376 in Maon 4584, whose possessions 4639 [were] in Carmel 3760; and the man 376 [was] very 3966 great 1419, and he had three 7969 thousand 505 sheep 6629, and a thousand 505 goats 5795: and he was shearing 1494 8800 his sheep 6629 in Carmel 3760.(possessions: or, business)

    25:3 Now the name 8034 of the man 376 [was] Nabal 5037; and the name 8034 of his wife 802 Abigail 26: and [she was] a woman 802 of good 2896 understanding 7922, and of a beautiful 3303 countenance 8389: but the man 376 [was] churlish 7186 and evil 7451 in his doings 4611; and he [was] of the house of Caleb 3614.

    25:4 And David 1732 heard 8085 8799 in the wilderness 4057 that Nabal 5037 did shear 1494 8802 his sheep 6629.

    25:5 And David 1732 sent out 7971 8799 ten 6235 young men 5288, and David 1732 said 559 8799 unto the young men 5288, Get you up 5927 8798 to Carmel 3760, and go 935 8804 to Nabal 5037, and greet 7592 8804 7965 him in my name 8034:(greet…: Heb. ask him in my name of peace)

    25:6 And thus shall ye say 559 8804 to him that liveth 2416 [in prosperity], Peace 7965 [be] both to thee, and peace 7965 [be] to thine house 1004, and peace 7965 [be] unto all that thou hast.

    25:7 And now I have heard 8085 8804 that thou hast shearers 1494 8802: now thy shepherds 7462 8802 which were with us, we hurt 3637 8689 them not, neither was there ought 3972 missing 6485 8738 unto them, all the while 3117 they were in Carmel 3760.(hurt: Heb. shamed)

    25:8 Ask 7592 8798 thy young men 5288, and they will shew 5046 8686 thee. Wherefore let the young men 5288 find 4672 8799 favour 2580 in thine eyes 5869: for we come 935 8804 in a good 2896 day 3117: give 5414 8798, I pray thee, whatsoever cometh 4672 8799 to thine hand 3027 unto thy servants 5650, and to thy son 1121 David 1732.

    25:9 And when David's 1732 young men 5288 came 935 8799, they spake 1696 8762 to Nabal 5037 according to all those words 1697 in the name 8034 of David 1732, and ceased 5117 8799.(ceased: Heb. rested)

    25:10 And Nabal 5037 answered 6030 8799 David's 1732 servants 5650, and said 559 8799, Who [is] David 1732? and who [is] the son 1121 of Jesse 3448? there be many 7231 8804 servants 5650 now a days 3117 that break away 6555 8693 every man 376 from 6440 his master 113.

    25:11 Shall I then take 3947 8804 my bread 3899, and my water 4325, and my flesh 2878 that I have killed 2873 8804 for my shearers 1494 8802, and give 5414 8804 [it] unto men 582, whom I know 3045 8804 not whence they [be]?(flesh: Heb. slaughter)

    25:12 So David's 1732 young men 5288 turned 2015 8799 their way 1870, and went again 7725 8799, and came 935 8799 and told 5046 8686 him all those sayings 1697.

    25:13 And David 1732 said 559 8799 unto his men 582, Gird ye on 2296 8798 every man 376 his sword 2719. And they girded on 2296 8799 every man 376 his sword 2719; and David 1732 also girded on 2296 8799 his sword 2719: and there went up 5927 8799 after 310 David 1732 about four 702 hundred 3967 men 376; and two hundred 3967 abode 3427 8804 by the stuff 3627.

    25:14 But one 259 of the young men 5288 told 5046 8689 Abigail 26, Nabal's 5037 wife 802, saying 559 8800, Behold, David 1732 sent 7971 8804 messengers 4397 out of the wilderness 4057 to salute 1288 8763 our master 113; and he railed 5860 8799 on them.(railed…: Heb. flew upon them)

    25:15 But the men 582 [were] very 3966 good 2896 unto us, and we were not hurt 3637 8717, neither missed 6485 8804 we any thing 3972, as long as 3117 we were conversant 1980 8694 with them, when we were in the fields 7704:(hurt: Heb. shamed)

    25:16 They were a wall 2346 unto us both by night 3915 and day 3119, all the while 3117 we were with them keeping 7462 8802 the sheep 6629.

    25:17 Now therefore know 3045 8798 and consider 7200 8798 what thou wilt do 6213 8799; for evil 7451 is determined 3615 8804 against our master 113, and against all his household 1004: for he [is such] a son 1121 of Belial 1100, that [a man] cannot speak 1696 8763 to him.

    25:18 Then Abigail 26 made haste 4116 8762, and took 3947 8799 two hundred 3967 loaves 3899, and two 8147 bottles 5035 of wine 3196, and five 2568 sheep 6629 ready dressed 6213 8803, and five 2568 measures 5429 of parched 7039 [corn], and an hundred 3967 clusters of raisins 6778, and two hundred 3967 cakes 1690 of figs, and laid 7760 8799 [them] on asses 2543.(clusters: or, lumps)

    25:19 And she said 559 8799 unto her servants 5288, Go on 5674 8798 before 6440 me; behold, I come 935 8802 after 310 you. But she told 5046 8689 not her husband 376 Nabal 5037.

    25:20 And it was [so, as] she rode 7392 8802 on the ass 2543, that she came down 3381 8802 by the covert 5643 of the hill 2022, and, behold, David 1732 and his men 582 came down 3381 8802 against 7125 8800 her; and she met 6298 8799 them.

    25:21 Now David 1732 had said 559 8804, Surely in vain 8267 have I kept 8104 8804 all that this 2088 [fellow] hath in the wilderness 4057, so that nothing 3972 was missed 6485 8738 of all that [pertained] unto him: and he hath requited 7725 8686 me evil 7451 for good 2896.

    25:22 So 3541 and more 3254 8686 also do 6213 8799 God 430 unto the enemies 341 8802 of David 1732, if I leave 7604 8686 of all that [pertain] to him by 5704 the morning 1242 light 216 any that pisseth 8366 8688 against the wall 7023.

    25:23 And when Abigail 26 saw 7200 8799 David 1732, she hasted 4116 8762, and lighted off 3381 8799 the ass 2543, and fell 5307 8799 before 639 David 1732 on her face 6440, and bowed 7812 8691 herself to the ground 776,

    25:24 And fell 5307 8799 at his feet 7272, and said 559 8799, Upon me, my lord 113, [upon] me [let this] iniquity 5771 [be]: and let thine handmaid 519, I pray thee, speak 1696 8762 in thine audience 241, and hear 8085 8798 the words 1697 of thine handmaid 589.(audience: Heb. ears)

    25:25 Let 7760 8799 not my lord 113, I pray thee, regard 3820 this man 376 of Belial 1100, [even] Nabal 5037: for as his name 8034 [is], so [is] he; Nabal 5037 [is] his name 8034, and folly 5039 [is] with him: but I thine handmaid 519 saw 7200 8804 not the young men 5288 of my lord 113, whom thou didst send 7971 8804.(regard: Heb. lay it to his heart)(Nabal: that is, Fool)

    25:26 Now therefore, my lord 113, [as] the LORD 3068 liveth 2416, and [as] thy soul 5315 liveth 2416, seeing the LORD 3068 hath withholden 4513 8804 thee from coming 935 8800 to [shed] blood 1818, and from avenging 3467 8687 thyself with thine own hand 3027, now let thine enemies 341 8802, and they that seek 1245 8764 evil 7451 to my lord 113, be as Nabal 5037.(avenging…: Heb. saving thyself)

    25:27 And now this blessing 1293 which thine handmaid 8198 hath brought 935 8689 unto my lord 113, let it even be given 5414 8738 unto the young men 5288 that follow 1980 8693 7272 my lord 113.(blessing: or, present)(follow…: Heb. walk at the feet of, etc)

    25:28 I pray thee, forgive 5375 8798 the trespass 6588 of thine handmaid 519: for the LORD 3068 will certainly 6213 8800 make 6213 8799 my lord 113 a sure 539 8737 house 1004; because my lord 113 fighteth 3898 8737 the battles 4421 of the LORD 3068, and evil 7451 hath not been found 4672 8735 in thee [all] thy days 3117.

    25:29 Yet a man 120 is risen 6965 8799 to pursue 7291 8800 thee, and to seek 1245 8763 thy soul 5315: but the soul 5315 of my lord 113 shall be bound 6887 8803 in the bundle 6872 of life 2416 with the LORD 3068 thy God 430; and the souls 5315 of thine enemies 341 8802, them shall he sling out 7049 8762, [as out] of the middle 8432 3709 of a sling 7050.(as out…: Heb. in the midst of the bought of a sling)

    25:30 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD 3068 shall have done 6213 8799 to my lord 113 according to all the good 2896 that he hath spoken 1696 8765 concerning thee, and shall have appointed 6680 8765 thee ruler 5057 over Israel 3478;

    25:31 That this shall be no grief 6330 unto thee, nor offence 4383 of heart 3820 unto my lord 113, either that thou hast shed 8210 8800 blood 1818 causeless 2600, or that my lord 113 hath avenged 3467 8687 himself: but when the LORD 3068 shall have dealt well 3190 8689 with my lord 113, then remember 2142 8804 thine handmaid 519.(no grief: Heb. no staggering, or, stumbling)

    25:32 And David 1732 said 559 8799 to Abigail 26, Blessed 1288 8803 [be] the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, which sent 7971 8804 thee this day 3117 to meet 7125 8800 me:

    25:33 And blessed 1288 8803 [be] thy advice 2940, and blessed 1288 8803 [be] thou, which hast kept 3607 8804 me this day 3117 from coming 935 8800 to [shed] blood 1818, and from avenging 3467 8687 myself with mine own hand 3027.

    25:34 For in very deed 199, [as] the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478 liveth 2416, which hath kept me back 4513 8804 from hurting 7489 8687 thee, except 3884 thou hadst hasted 4116 8765 and come 935 8799 to meet 7125 8800 me, surely there had not been left 3498 8738 unto Nabal 5037 by the morning 1242 light 216 any that pisseth 8366 8688 against the wall 7023.

    25:35 So David 1732 received 3947 8799 of her hand 3027 [that] which she had brought 935 8689 him, and said 559 8804 unto her, Go up 5927 8798 in peace 7965 to thine house 1004; see 7200 8798, I have hearkened 8085 8804 to thy voice 6963, and have accepted 5375 8799 thy person 6440.

    25:36 And Abigail 26 came 935 8799 to Nabal 5037; and, behold, he held a feast 4960 in his house 1004, like the feast 4960 of a king 4428; and Nabal's 5037 heart 3820 [was] merry 2896 within him, for he [was] very 3966 drunken 7910: wherefore she told 5046 8689 him nothing 1697, less 6996 or more 1419, until the morning 1242 light 216.

    25:37 But it came to pass in the morning 1242, when the wine 3196 was gone out 3318 8800 of Nabal 5037, and his wife 802 had told 5046 8686 him these things 1697, that his heart 3820 died 4191 8799 within 7130 him, and he became [as] a stone 68.

    25:38 And it came to pass about ten 6235 days 3117 [after], that the LORD 3068 smote 5062 8799 Nabal 5037, that he died 4191 8799.

    25:39 And when David 1732 heard 8085 8799 that Nabal 5037 was dead 4191 8804, he said 559 8799, Blessed 1288 8803 [be] the LORD 3068, that hath pleaded 7378 8804 the cause 7379 of my reproach 2781 from the hand 3027 of Nabal 5037, and hath kept 2820 8804 his servant 5650 from evil 7451: for the LORD 3068 hath returned 7725 8689 the wickedness 7451 of Nabal 5037 upon his own head 7218. And David 1732 sent 7971 8799 and communed 1696 8762 with Abigail 26, to take 3947 8800 her to him to wife 802.

    25:40 And when the servants 5650 of David 1732 were come 935 8799 to Abigail 26 to Carmel 3760, they spake 1696 8762 unto her, saying 559 8800, David 1732 sent 7971 8804 us unto thee, to take 3947 8800 thee to him to wife 802.

    25:41 And she arose 6965 8799, and bowed 7812 8691 herself on [her] face 639 to the earth 776, and said 559 8799, Behold, [let] thine handmaid 519 [be] a servant 8198 to wash 7364 8800 the feet 7272 of the servants 5650 of my lord 113.

    25:42 And Abigail 26 hasted 4116 8762, and arose 6965 8799, and rode 7392 8799 upon an ass 2543, with five 2568 damsels 5291 of hers that went 1980 8802 after 7272 her; and she went 3212 8799 after 310 the messengers 4397 of David 1732, and became his wife 802.(after her: Heb. at her feet)

    25:43 David 1732 also took 3947 8804 Ahinoam 293 of Jezreel 3157; and they were also both 8147 of them his wives 802.

    25:44 But Saul 7586 had given 5414 8804 Michal 4324 his daughter 1323, David's 1732 wife 802, to Phalti 6406 the son 1121 of Laish 3919, which [was] of Gallim 1554.
