Sample text

Perhaps he even had another meaning hidden in the name: he wanted the boy to remember always to be loyal to his father, and never do anything to embarrass or diminish the rightful king of Israel. " And when Abigail offered an opinion, David listened intently.  King Achish believed David had cut all ties with Israel, and now lived as an independent king under the vassalage of the Philistines.  Many people thought of them as Israelites, including King Achish.  Everybody knew—except King Achish.  A boy, much to David's delight.

No humans, no matter how qualified by birth and training, could impose their will on the will of the Almighty.  The questions were far beyond her ability to understand.  When Abigail asked him where Hezro went, he shrugged.  But she quickly forgot that, as she hurried with the rophe into the bed chamber where Kenaz lay unconscious.  He prayed, chanting ancient psalms, but nothing helped. Before sunset, the rophe rose to leave.  She gave the Levite several raisin cakes and a silver coin, then sent him back to Carmel.

He would see her as the obvious choice for first wife.  Just because he asked her. But the thought occurred to her again—how would Ahinoam accept this?  She marveled that Ahinoam showed no resentment toward Abigail for those nights.  If the father were indeed a favorite of Yahweh, then this was a part of God's plan for Israel.  She would gladly trade being the mother of the heir to the throne for those blissful nights of love with her husband.  That could hold only grief in the years ahead. But what would the years ahead hold for her as the first wife in a king's household?
