In his churlish fashion, Nabal bluntly refused to give David a crumb for his hungry men, and dismissed David as a marauding hireling.Angered, David threatened to plunder Nabal’s possession and kill Nabal and all those who emulated his contempt.Nabal is described as “the man churlish and evil in his doings” (1 Samuel 25:3), and his record proves him to be all that.Churlish means, a bear of man, harsh, rude and brutal.She also revealed her wisdom in that she fell at the feet of David, as an inferior before a superior, and acquiesced with him in his condemnation of her brutal, foolish husband.As a Hebrew woman was restricted by the customs of her time to give counsel only in an emergency and in the hour of greatest need, Abigail, who had risked the displeasure of her husband whose life was threatened, did not act impulsively in going to David to plead for mercy.

The sacred historian tells us how these three persons were brought together in a tragic way.Nabal was also a drunken wretch, as well as being unmanageable and stubborn and ill-tempered.Doubtless he was often “very drunken.” This wretch of a man was likewise an unbeliever, “a son of Belial,” who bowed his knee to the god of this world and not to the God of his fathers.Gathering together a quantity of food and wine, sufficient she thought for David’s immediate need, Abigail rode out on an ass and at a covert of a hill met David and his men—and what a momentous meeting it turned out to be.With discreet tact Abigail averted David’s just anger over Nabal’s insult to his messengers, by placing at David’s feet food for his hungry men.
