30 ¶ And it came to pass when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day that the Amalekites had invaded the Negev and Ziklag and had smitten Ziklag and burned it with fire.
2 And they had taken the women captives that were therein, from the youngest to the oldest; they did not kill any but carried them away and went on their way.
3 So David and his men came to the city, and, behold, it was burned with fire, and their wives and their sons and their daughters were taken captives.

5 And David’s two wives were taken captives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess and Abigail, who had been the wife of Nabal of Carmel.
6 And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him because the soul of all the people was bitter, each one for his sons and for his daughters; but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.
