Which is observed as one cause of his particular distress, and another follows in ( 1 Samuel 30:6 ) :

Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite:
that is, who had been his wife; for he was now dead, ( 1 Samuel 25:39 ) , and was so before she was married to David; both these came with him to Gath, and were left at Ziklag when he went with Achish, and here they were taken; see ( 1 Samuel 25:42 1 Samuel 25:43 ) ( 27:3 ) .
