40 David's servants went to Abigail at Carmel with the message, "David sent us to bring you to marry him."

1 Samuel 25:40 In-Context

38 About ten days later God finished him off and he died.
39 When David heard that Nabal was dead he said, "Blessed be God who has stood up for me against Nabal's insults, kept me from an evil act, and let Nabal's evil boomerang back on him."
40 David's servants went to Abigail at Carmel with the message, "David sent us to bring you to marry him."
41 She got up, and then bowed down, face to the ground, saying, "I'm your servant, ready to do anything you want. I'll even wash the feet of my master's servants!"
42 Abigail didn't linger. She got on her donkey and, with her five maids in attendance, went with the messengers to David and became his wife.
