This is another David story. David was living in the wilderness (see the thorns by the road?) and they were watching over the sheep of local "ranchers." At harvest time, they went to the party to ask for some consideration for their help... and the rancher shagged them off. That made David furious, and he gathered his men together to wipe out the whole group. The rancher's wife, Abigail, heard what had happened, and had the presence of mind to head David off at the pass with a generous gift, and kept David from making a big mistake. A couple of days later Abigail became a widow, and David married her, because he was so impressed by her wisdom.
A love story, and an adventure, all in one!
