SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:25 No ponga ahora mi señor su corazón a aquel hijo de Belial, a Nabal; porque conforme a su nombre, así es. El se llama Nabal (loco ), y la locura está con él; mas yo tu sierva no vi los criados de mi señor, los cuales tú enviaste.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 25. Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial , [even] Nabal , etc.] He is a worthless man, it must be owned, a weak foolish man, rather to be despised than regarded by him; what either he says or does is unworthy of the notice of any, and much less of so great a person as David was: for as his name [is], so [is] he ; his natural disposition, genius, and conduct, agree with his name; when anyone knows his name, he may judge what is to be expected from him: Nabal [is] his name : which signifies a fool: and folly , in Hebrew, “Nebalah”, [is] with him ; attends all, his words and actions. This character of her husband, though no doubt a just one, yet it would not have been right in her to have given it, whose folly she should rather have concealed, but that it was his well known character; and she observes it not to reproach him with it, but to excuse his sin, his rudeness and ingratitude and preserve his life; and suggests that what he had done was not to be imputed to malice in his heart, but to his stupidity and folly, and so not to be regarded, and was not a peculiar single action of his, but what he was daily more or less guilty of; his folly was with him wherever he went and appeared in everything he said or did, and therefore to be overlooked and despised: but I thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send : as she had taken the blame upon herself, now she answers for herself, and pleads ignorance of his messengers, and their message; she had not so much as seen them with her eyes, and much less heard their message when reported; had she, she would have taken care, she intimates, that it should have been attended to; having so much interest in her husband, that she could have prevailed on him to have used them with civility, and granted their request.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 18-31 - By a present Abigail atoned for Nabal's denial of David's request. He behaviour was very submissive. Yielding pacifies great offences. Sh puts herself in the place of a penitent, and of a petitioner. She coul not excuse her husband's conduct. She depends not upon her ow reasonings, but on God's grace, to soften David, and expects that grac would work powerfully. She says that it was below him to take vengeanc on so weak and despicable an enemy as Nabal, who, as he would do him n kindness, so he could do him no hurt. She foretells the glorious end of David's present troubles. God will preserve thy life; therefore it becomes not thee unjustly and unnecessarily to take away the lives of any, especially of the people of thy God and Saviour. Abigail keep this argument for the last, as very powerful with so good a man; tha the less he indulged his passion, the more he consulted his peace an the repose of his own conscience. Many have done that in a heat, whic they have a thousand times wished undone again. The sweetness of revenge is soon turned into bitterness. When tempted to sin, we shoul consider how it will appear when we think upon it afterwards.
