Then in the morning, when Nabal was sober, his wife told him all these things, and his heart failed him and he became like a stone.138
About ten days later, the LORD struck2 Nabal and he died.
When David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, "Praise be to the LORD, who has upheld my cause against Nabal for treating me with contempt. He has kept his servant from doing wrong and has brought Nabal's wrongdoing down on his own head." Then David sent word to Abigail, asking her to become his wife.
His servants went to Carmel and said to Abigail, "David has sent us to you to take you to become his wife."
