Bible: 2 Sam 3:12-16

3:12 Then Abner sent messengers 1  to David saying, “To whom does the land belong? Make an agreement 2  with me, and I will do whatever I can 3  to cause all Israel to turn to you.” 3:13 So David said, “Good! I will make an agreement with you. I ask only one thing from you. You will not see my face unless you bring Saul’s daughter Michal when you come to visit me.” 4 

3:14 David sent messengers to Ish-bosheth son of Saul with this demand: 5  “Give me my wife Michal whom I acquired 6  for a hundred Philistine foreskins.” 3:15 So Ish-bosheth took her 7  from her husband Paltiel 8  son of Laish. 3:16 Her husband went along behind her, weeping all the way to Bahurim. Finally Abner said to him, “Go back!” 9  So he returned home.
