    Definitions for 1 Samuel 25:28

    And evil hath not been found in thee - Thou hast not committed any act of this kind hitherto.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Samuel 25:28

    For the Lord will make ... a sure house - Compare 1 Samuel 2:35, and 2 Samuel 7:16; 1 Kings 11:38. Abigail's firm persuasion of David's kingdom stands upon the same footing as Rahab's conviction of God's gift of Canaan to the Israelites Joshua 2:9-13. Both testified to God's revelation and their own faith. This is doubtless the reason why Abigail's speech is recorded.
