1Samuel 25
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
25And SamuelH8050 diedH4191; and all the IsraelitesH3478 were gathered togetherH6908, and lamentedH5594 him, and buriedH6912 him in his houseH1004 at RamahH7414. And DavidH1732 aroseH6965, and went downH3381 to the wildernessH4057 of ParanH6290. 2And there was a manH376 in MaonH4584, whose possessionsH4639 were in CarmelH3760; and the manH376 was veryH3966 greatH1419, and he had threeH7969 thousandH505 sheepH6629, and a thousandH505 goatsH5795: and he was shearingH1494 his sheepH6629 in CarmelH3760. 3Now the nameH8034 of the manH376 was NabalH5037; and the nameH8034 of his wifeH802 AbigailH26: and she was a womanH802 of goodH2896 understandingH7922, and of a beautifulH3303 countenanceH8389: but the manH376 was churlishH7186 and evilH7451 in his doingsH4611; and he was of the house of CalebH3614. 4And DavidH1732 heardH8085 in the wildernessH4057 that NabalH5037 did shearH1494 his sheepH6629. 5And DavidH1732 sent outH7971 tenH6235 young menH5288, and DavidH1732 saidH559 unto the young menH5288, Get you upH5927 to CarmelH3760, and goH935 to NabalH5037, and greetH7592H7965 him in my nameH8034: 6And thus shall ye sayH559 to him that livethH2416 in prosperity, PeaceH7965 be both to thee, and peaceH7965 be to thine houseH1004, and peaceH7965 be unto all that thou hast. 7And now I have heardH8085 that thou hast shearersH1494: now thy shepherdsH7462 which were with us, we hurtH3637 them not, neither was there oughtH3972 missingH6485 unto them, all the whileH3117 they were in CarmelH3760. 8AskH7592 thy young menH5288, and they will shewH5046 thee. Wherefore let the young menH5288 findH4672 favourH2580 in thine eyesH5869: for we comeH935 in a goodH2896 dayH3117: giveH5414, I pray thee, whatsoever comethH4672 to thine handH3027 unto thy servantsH5650, and to thy sonH1121 DavidH1732. 9And when David'sH1732 young menH5288 cameH935, they spakeH1696 to NabalH5037 according to all those wordsH1697 in the nameH8034 of DavidH1732, and ceasedH5117. 10And NabalH5037 answeredH6030 David'sH1732 servantsH5650, and saidH559, Who is DavidH1732? and who is the sonH1121 of JesseH3448? there be manyH7231 servantsH5650 now a daysH3117 that break awayH6555 every manH376 fromH6440 his masterH113. 11Shall I then takeH3947 my breadH3899, and my waterH4325, and my fleshH2878 that I have killedH2873 for my shearersH1494, and giveH5414 it unto menH582, whom I knowH3045 not whence they be? 12So David'sH1732 young menH5288 turnedH2015 their wayH1870, and went againH7725, and cameH935 and toldH5046 him all those sayingsH1697. 13And DavidH1732 saidH559 unto his menH582, Gird ye onH2296 every manH376 his swordH2719. And they girded onH2296 every manH376 his swordH2719; and DavidH1732 also girded onH2296 his swordH2719: and there went upH5927 afterH310 DavidH1732 about fourH702 hundredH3967 menH376; and two hundredH3967 abodeH3427 by the stuffH3627. 14But oneH259 of the young menH5288 toldH5046 AbigailH26, Nabal'sH5037 wifeH802, sayingH559, Behold, DavidH1732 sentH7971 messengersH4397 out of the wildernessH4057 to saluteH1288 our masterH113; and he railedH5860 on them. 15But the menH582 were veryH3966 goodH2896 unto us, and we were not hurtH3637, neither missedH6485 we any thingH3972, as long asH3117 we were conversantH1980 with them, when we were in the fieldsH7704: 16They were a wallH2346 unto us both by nightH3915 and dayH3119, all the whileH3117 we were with them keepingH7462 the sheepH6629. 17Now therefore knowH3045 and considerH7200 what thou wilt doH6213; for evilH7451 is determinedH3615 against our masterH113, and against all his householdH1004: for he is such a sonH1121 of BelialH1100, that a man cannot speakH1696 to him. 18Then AbigailH26 made hasteH4116, and tookH3947 two hundredH3967 loavesH3899, and twoH8147 bottlesH5035 of wineH3196, and fiveH2568 sheepH6629 ready dressedH6213, and fiveH2568 measuresH5429 of parchedH7039 corn, and an hundredH3967 clusters of raisinsH6778, and two hundredH3967 cakesH1690 of figs, and laidH7760 them on assesH2543. 19And she saidH559 unto her servantsH5288, Go onH5674 beforeH6440 me; behold, I comeH935 afterH310 you. But she toldH5046 not her husbandH376 NabalH5037. 20And it was so, as she rodeH7392 on the assH2543, that she came downH3381 by the covertH5643 of the hillH2022, and, behold, DavidH1732 and his menH582 came downH3381 againstH7125 her; and she metH6298 them. 21Now DavidH1732 had saidH559, Surely in vainH8267 have I keptH8104 all that thisH2088 fellow hath in the wildernessH4057, so that nothingH3972 was missedH6485 of all that pertained unto him: and he hath requitedH7725 me evilH7451 for goodH2896. 22SoH3541 and moreH3254 also doH6213 GodH430 unto the enemiesH341 of DavidH1732, if I leaveH7604 of all that pertain to him byH5704 the morningH1242 lightH216 any that pissethH8366 against the wallH7023. 23And when AbigailH26 sawH7200 DavidH1732, she hastedH4116, and lighted offH3381 the assH2543, and fellH5307 beforeH639 DavidH1732 on her faceH6440, and bowedH7812 herself to the groundH776, 24And fellH5307 at his feetH7272, and saidH559, Upon me, my lordH113, upon me let this iniquityH5771 be: and let thine handmaidH519, I pray thee, speakH1696 in thine audienceH241, and hearH8085 the wordsH1697 of thine handmaidH589. 25LetH7760 not my lordH113, I pray thee, regardH3820 this manH376 of BelialH1100, even NabalH5037: for as his nameH8034 is, so is he; NabalH5037 is his nameH8034, and follyH5039 is with him: but I thine handmaidH519 sawH7200 not the young menH5288 of my lordH113, whom thou didst sendH7971. 26Now therefore, my lordH113, as the LORDH3068 livethH2416, and as thy soulH5315 livethH2416, seeing the LORDH3068 hath withholdenH4513 thee from comingH935 to shed bloodH1818, and from avengingH3467 thyself with thine own handH3027, now let thine enemiesH341, and they that seekH1245 evilH7451 to my lordH113, be as NabalH5037. 27And now this blessingH1293 which thine handmaidH8198 hath broughtH935 unto my lordH113, let it even be givenH5414 unto the young menH5288 that followH1980H7272 my lordH113. 28I pray thee, forgiveH5375 the trespassH6588 of thine handmaidH519: for the LORDH3068 will certainlyH6213 makeH6213 my lordH113 a sureH539 houseH1004; because my lordH113 fightethH3898 the battlesH4421 of the LORDH3068, and evilH7451 hath not been foundH4672 in thee all thy daysH3117. 29Yet a manH120 is risenH6965 to pursueH7291 thee, and to seekH1245 thy soulH5315: but the soulH5315 of my lordH113 shall be boundH6887 in the bundleH6872 of lifeH2416 with the LORDH3068 thy GodH430; and the soulsH5315 of thine enemiesH341, them shall he sling outH7049, as out of the middleH8432H3709 of a slingH7050. 30And it shall come to pass, when the LORDH3068 shall have doneH6213 to my lordH113 according to all the goodH2896 that he hath spokenH1696 concerning thee, and shall have appointedH6680 thee rulerH5057 over IsraelH3478; 31That this shall be no griefH6330 unto thee, nor offenceH4383 of heartH3820 unto my lordH113, either that thou hast shedH8210 bloodH1818 causelessH2600, or that my lordH113 hath avengedH3467 himself: but when the LORDH3068 shall have dealt wellH3190 with my lordH113, then rememberH2142 thine handmaidH519. 32And DavidH1732 saidH559 to AbigailH26, BlessedH1288 be the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, which sentH7971 thee this dayH3117 to meetH7125 me: 33And blessedH1288 be thy adviceH2940, and blessedH1288 be thou, which hast keptH3607 me this dayH3117 from comingH935 to shed bloodH1818, and from avengingH3467 myself with mine own handH3027. 34For in very deedH199, as the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 livethH2416, which hath kept me backH4513 from hurtingH7489 thee, exceptH3884 thou hadst hastedH4116 and comeH935 to meetH7125 me, surely there had not been leftH3498 unto NabalH5037 by the morningH1242 lightH216 any that pissethH8366 against the wallH7023. 35So DavidH1732 receivedH3947 of her handH3027 that which she had broughtH935 him, and saidH559 unto her, Go upH5927 in peaceH7965 to thine houseH1004; seeH7200, I have hearkenedH8085 to thy voiceH6963, and have acceptedH5375 thy personH6440. 36And AbigailH26 cameH935 to NabalH5037; and, behold, he held a feastH4960 in his houseH1004, like the feastH4960 of a kingH4428; and Nabal'sH5037 heartH3820 was merryH2896 within him, for he was veryH3966 drunkenH7910: wherefore she toldH5046 him nothingH1697, lessH6996 or moreH1419, until the morningH1242 lightH216. 37But it came to pass in the morningH1242, when the wineH3196 was gone outH3318 of NabalH5037, and his wifeH802 had toldH5046 him these thingsH1697, that his heartH3820 diedH4191 withinH7130 him, and he became as a stoneH68. 38And it came to pass about tenH6235 daysH3117 after, that the LORDH3068 smoteH5062 NabalH5037, that he diedH4191. 39And when DavidH1732 heardH8085 that NabalH5037 was deadH4191, he saidH559, BlessedH1288 be the LORDH3068, that hath pleadedH7378 the causeH7379 of my reproachH2781 from the handH3027 of NabalH5037, and hath keptH2820 his servantH5650 from evilH7451: for the LORDH3068 hath returnedH7725 the wickednessH7451 of NabalH5037 upon his own headH7218. And DavidH1732 sentH7971 and communedH1696 with AbigailH26, to takeH3947 her to him to wifeH802. 40And when the servantsH5650 of DavidH1732 were comeH935 to AbigailH26 to CarmelH3760, they spakeH1696 unto her, sayingH559, DavidH1732 sentH7971 us unto thee, to takeH3947 thee to him to wifeH802. 41And she aroseH6965, and bowedH7812 herself on her faceH639 to the earthH776, and saidH559, Behold, let thine handmaidH519 be a servantH8198 to washH7364 the feetH7272 of the servantsH5650 of my lordH113. 42And AbigailH26 hastedH4116, and aroseH6965, and rodeH7392 upon an assH2543, with fiveH2568 damselsH5291 of hers that wentH1980 afterH7272 her; and she wentH3212 afterH310 the messengersH4397 of DavidH1732, and became his wifeH802. 43DavidH1732 also tookH3947 AhinoamH293 of JezreelH3157; and they were also bothH8147 of them his wivesH802. 44But SaulH7586 had givenH5414 MichalH4324 his daughterH1323, David'sH1732 wifeH802, to PhaltiH6406 the sonH1121 of LaishH3919, which was of GallimH1554.
