Study Oct 17 – Michal and Paltiel

When Michal, David’s wife, rescued him from Saul, David fled, leaving her behind (1 Sam 19:12).   Saul gave her as wife to Paltiel (1 Sam 25:44).   After the death of Saul, David demanded his wife back.  When they took Michal from Paltiel, “her  husband went with her, weeping as he went.”  (2 Sam 3:13-16).  Such a poignant story.  We wonder if David ever loved anyone.
