1 Samuel 25:37-39 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
37 In the morning he was not drunk. Then his wife told him everything. His heart failed him, and he became like a stone. 38 About ten days later the Lord struck Nabal and caused him to die.
39 When David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, “Praise the Lord! Nabal insulted me, but the Lord has supported me! He has kept me from doing wrong. And the Lord caused Nabal to die because he did wrong.”
Then David sent a message to Abigail. He asked her to become his wife.
