Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 25:14-18

_ _ 1 Samuel 25:14-35. Abigail pacifies him.

_ _ Then Abigail made haste — The prudence and address of Nabal’s wife were the means of saving him and family from utter destruction. She acknowledged the demand of her formidable neighbors; but justly considering, that to atone for the insolence of her husband, a greater degree of liberality had become necessary, she collected a large amount of food, accompanying it with the most valued products of the country.

_ _ bottles — goatskins, capable of holding a great quantity.

_ _ parched corn — It was customary to eat parched corn when it was fully grown, but not ripe.
