44 But Saul had given his daughter Michal, David's wife, to Paltiel[1] son of Laish, who was from Gallim.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Samuel 25:44

Commentary on 1 Samuel 25:39-44

(Read 1 Samuel 25:39-44)

Abigail believed that David would be king over Israel, and greatly esteemed his pious and excellent character. She deemed his proposal of marriage honourable, and advantageous to her, notwithstanding his present difficulties. With great humility, and doubtless agreeably to the customs of those times, she consented, being willing to share his trails. Thus those who join themselves to Christ, must be willing now to suffer with him, believing that hereafter they shall reign with him.
