Abigail is the one that prevented any kind of a disaster from happening. The story can be found in 1 Samuel 25. Nabal is described as “churlish” man in the King James translation of the Bible. This is a good description to fit a man that refuses to help people he doesn’t know. Nabal had shearers of sheep, and David wanted to congratulate him on his prosperity and ask for some in return to spread among those that were less fortunate.
However, Nabal didn’t recognize his name. So, all of David’s servants but one go back; the one that stayed behind talked to Abigail, who is Nabal’s wife. She recognizes the name and gets bread, water, and other foods ready for David’s men.
In biblical times, there were many disaster that occurred including locusts, droughts, famine, severe war, atrocities against individual people for no reason and many other things as well. However, there were times that these disasters were prevented. Abigail was a woman in the Bible. She is mentioned in the book of First Samuel. She was the wife of Nabal. She would also become King David’s wife after her current husband died.
Abigail tried to stop the future king from doing something he would regret. She stopped him from taking revenge on Nabal. She feeds him and talks to him. This ends up preventing a disaster from occurring. This took place in regards to David’s third wife and Saul’s daughter Michal.
