1 Samuel 25:24; 1 Samuel 25:32–33; Proverbs 25:15

24 She fell at his feet and said, wOn me alone, my lord, be the guilt. Please let your servant speak in your ears, and hear the words of your servant.

32 And David said to Abigail, fBlessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who sent you this day to meet me! 33 Blessed be your discretion, and blessed be you, ywho have kept me this day from bloodguilt zand from working salvation with my own hand!

15  With epatience a ruler may be persuaded,

and a soft tongue will break a bone.
