1 Samuel 25:37-39 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
37 But in the morning, when the effects of the wine had worn off, his wife told him what had happened. Nabal’s heart failed, and he could not move. [a] 38 About ten days later the Lord made him even more sick, and Nabal died.
39 When David heard Nabal was dead, he said, “Blessed be the Lord, who defended me against the insults of Nabal and kept me from doing wrong. The Lord has turned Nabal’s own wickedness back on him.”
Then David sent men on his behalf to propose marriage to Abigail.
