A long, long time ago, in the time of ancient prophets, there lived a foolish man called Nabal.
Nabal's name, as it happened, meant "fool". And he was indeed a fool. He was brutish, and mean. He had a bad temper that could match any woman on her period.
Nabal was a farmer.
Nabal's wife was a clever and beautiful woman, called Abigail. She was quick witted and intelligent, and probably helped her husband become a rich man.
