‘And now…as surely as the LORD your God lives…
since the LORD has kept you from…avenging yourself…’
David said to Abigail, ‘Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who has sent you today to meet me.’
1 Samuel 25:26-32
Abigail mentioned the name of the LORD five times. She appealed to David’s reverence for the LORD and his law. She reminded him that the LORD was fighting his battles. She implored him to let the LORD mete out justice rather than take the law into his own hands. Wise words.
