Ahinoam (David's queen consort)

From Monarchists.Wiki

Ahinoam (Hebrew: אחינועם) was a queen consort of King David of Israel and the mother of David's first-born son Amnon. She was from Jezreel.

While David and his wives Ahinoam and Abigail were living outside of Israel in order to escape Saul's reach, David re-entered the services of Achish, the Philistine King of Gath and was granted the city of Ziklag. Although Achish trusted David, his commanders did not, so Achish had David retire from his services.

David returned to Ziklag to find that it had been sacked by the Amalekites. The Amalekites had taken the women and children of the city, including Ahinoam and Abigail, captive. David and his men cried out and wept.

David asked God for guidance, and God commanded David to pursue them and assured David that they would overtake the raiders in time and rescue the captives. David found the raiders with the aid of an Egyptian slave that the Amalekites had abandoned and left for dead. David attacked and defeated the raiders and recovered Abigail and Ahinoam, along with the other captives and loot.
