Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”

Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: David & Ahinoam (1 Samuel 25:42-44).

Abigail got up hurriedly and rode away on a donkey; her five maids attended her. She went after the messengers of David and became his wife.

David also married Ahinoam of Jezreel; both of them became his wives. Saul had given his daughter Michal, David’s wife, to Palti son of Laish, who was from Gallim.

What's the deal with this 'Sunday WTF'?
Taking too much too lightly
Duck Dynasty's loveless ethics and why reaver jokes aren't funny

  • Brian of Nazareth

    Pfft. Property deals.

  • Vulpis Contra

    Truly, a blow to David/Michal shippers everywhere.

  • EllieMurasaki

    Yeah, isn’t it bad enough NBC canceled Kings?

  • Amaryllis

    Spoiler: they get back together. But David wasn’t much of a one for a One True Pairing.

    Or, Dryden might have put it hadst he been living in this hour, it’s good to be king:

    In pious times, ere priest-craft did begin,
    Before polygamy was made a sin;
    When man, on many, multipli’d his kind,
    Ere one to one was cursedly confin’d:
    When Nature prompted, and no Law deni’d
    Promiscuous use of concubine and bride;
    Then, Israel’s monarch, after Heaven’s own heart,
    His vigorous warmth did variously impart
    To wives and slaves: and, wide as his command,
    Scatter’d his Maker’s image through the land.
    Michal, of royal blood, the crown did wear;
    A soil ungrateful to the tiller’s care:
    Not so the rest; for several mothers bore
    To god-like David, several sons before.

    (from “Absalom and Achitophel.” And we know what happened to them.)

     David wasn’t much of a one for a One True Pairing.

    Well, apart from Jonathan.
