abigail - Wife of Nabal, a rich boor who refused food to David when he was in the wilderness of Paran. She persuaded David not to punish her husband, and so gained his affection that he married her after the death of Nabal (1 Sam. 25). She proved a faithful and devoted wife, and was the mother of Chileab (2 Sam. 3), or Daniel (1 Chron. 3). Abigail as a name for a waiting-maid is derived from Abigail's description of herself as David's handmaid. Another Abigail was David's sister and mother of Amasa (2 Sam. 17 and 1 Chron. 2).
