Perhaps he even had another meaning hidden in the name: he wanted the boy to remember always to be loyal to his father, and never do anything to embarrass or diminish the rightful king of Israel. " And when Abigail offered an opinion, David listened intently.  King Achish believed David had cut all ties with Israel, and now lived as an independent king under the vassalage of the Philistines.  Many people thought of them as Israelites, including King Achish.  Everybody knew—except King Achish.  A boy, much to David's delight.

The story Shammah told in such minute detail—he had been there, he claimed—described how the youngster David, with no armor, nothing more than his shepherd's slingshot, went out to face the giant.  She said as much to Shammah. " This brought a loud and sputtering rebuttal from Shammah, as Hezro lapsed into his usual silence.  One evening she asked Shammah about it. " The city of the Sea Peoples—whom Shammah called the Philistines—lay far to the southwest, at the edge of the desert.  Perhaps he had not expected such a shrewd political insight from a woman.

If Jehallelel failed to object, the wedding was valid.  Now—if he did not object—it was legal. "You already have a wife," he muttered.  She had not known this.  Nevertheless, he held his fury inside him.  Some of David's men had already drawn their swords.  The only response he could make—and live. " For several seconds more, Jehallelel glared at David.  At a muffled order, the servants picked up the palanquin and marched out. ''You have made a powerful enemy, David," growled Joab.  And suddenly the solemn mood was broken by laughter from the men around them, as their natural good humor returned.
