So David received of her hand [that] which she had brought
Her present, ( 1 Samuel 25:18 ) ; and which he kindly took for his own use, as well as for his men; for it was a present for a prince: and said to her, go up in peace to thine house;
in peace of mind, having her request granted, and nothing to fear from David and his men, and so might return home with the greatest safety in her own person, with those that were with her, and be under no apprehensions of danger and destruction to Nabal and his family: see, I have hearkened to thy voice;
to her arguments and reasonings, which were powerful; to her petitions, which were granted; and to her good counsel and advice, which he took: and have accepted thy person:
done as she desired, forgave the offence, and so lifted her up, as the word signifies, and made her countenance cheerful; received her present kindly, and took well all she said and did; and promised to grant her, for the future, anything that lay in his power, whenever she should apply to him, see ( Job 42:8 Job 42:9 ) .
