1 Samuel 25:32  (King James Version)
And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me:

David overlooks the rich and seasonable present of Abigail, though pressed with hunger and wearied with travel; but her advice, which disarmed his rage, and calmed his revenge, draws forth these high and affectionate gratulations. These were his joyful and glorious trophies; not over his enemies, but over himself.
