David's other wife appeared at the gate and burst in on her. At first Abigail's resentment left her sullen and unresponsive to Ahinoam's expressions of concern. Nothing would please a loving marital companion more than to give him the one thing no amount of wealth or power could purchase. The Anointed One of Yahweh.

Their leader was Hezro's kinsman Shammah ben Agee. His wife, Miriam, now shared the house with Abigail and Shua. They spread themselves out over the estate, tending sheep, working the gardens, or just lounging in the courtyard talking idly. Abigail avoided them. At least it was something to do while waiting for David to send for her. Hezro, who had come to the house to visit Shua, to whom he was betrothed, rolled his eyes and grinned. He told his preposterous stories with a flair, held Abigail's attention, and even elicited some hearty laughs.
Ahinoam was meek, unable to assert her will on others. He would see her as the obvious choice for first wife. Just because he asked her. But the thought occurred to her again—how would Ahinoam accept this? She marveled that Ahinoam showed no resentment toward Abigail for those nights. If the father were indeed a favorite of Yahweh, then this was a part of God's plan for Israel. She would gladly trade being the mother of the heir to the throne for those blissful nights of love with her husband.
