Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

1 Samuel 25:23 is connected with 1 Samuel 25:20. When Abigail saw David, she descended hastily from the ass, fell upon her face before him, bowed to the ground, and fell at his feet, saying, "Upon me, me, my lord, be the guilt; allow thy handmaid to reveal the thing to thee." She takes the guilt upon herself, because she hopes that David will not avenge it upon her.
