And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, “Blessed is Yahweh who has upheld my cause against the insult that came from the hand of Nabal, and has kept back his servant from evil. Yahweh has returned the evildoing of Nabal on his own head.”

Then David sent and spoke with Abigail about taking her to himself as a wife. Bible other translations

“Yahweh has returned the evildoing of Nabal.” Nabal returned evil for David’s good (1 Sam. 25:21), and here Yahweh returns Nabal’s evil for evil.

“Then David sent and spoke with Abigail.” David speaks with Abigail through mediators, the men he sent.
