Now think it over and see what you can do, because disaster is hanging over our master and his whole household. He is such a wicked man that no one can talk to him.”
1 Samuel 12:17
Run, Abigail, run quickly!
Gather all the supplies that you can. Do not think of the unfairness of it all, or let your thoughts linger on his arrogance too long.
If you let them linger, you’ll both die. And though it would have been his error,
It is you who will suffer greatly.
So run quickly, gather all the servants to work quickly. Pack all the goods your hands can find,
Every savoury dish, do not leave it behind.
The king’s anger has been kindled, and it burns hot and merciless. 
And when you arrive in his path, do not let your thoughts or emotions or your reasons speak for you. No. 
Fall on your knees and beg for mercy, that your life, you and your household may be spared.
And though it wasn’t you that has driven you to this desperate position, recognize that you are just as guilty. The king will not differentiate, for he only knows his wrath. Let your face be contrite, your heart even more, that your life may be spared and there’ll be hope for you. 
Be wise and move quickly, Abigail.
Time is running out.
