The young beautiful girl for the old cold King David (1 Kings 1:1-1:4)

“King David was old and advanced in years. Although they covered him with clothes, he could not get warm. So his servants said to him. ‘Let a young virgin be sought for my lord the king. Let her wait upon the king and be his attendant. Let her lie in your bosom, so that my lord the king may be warm.’ So they searched for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel. They found Abishag the Shunammite. They brought her to the king. The girl was very beautiful. She became the king’s attendant. She served him. But the king did not know her sexually.”

King David was getting old. It does not say how old he was. Anyway, he is cold all the time. His servants wanted to get a young beautiful girl to warm him up. They finally found Abishag the Shunammite, who was from the territory of Issachar. She was to be his attendant. However, the text clearly says that she was not sexually intimate with her. King David had many wives and concubines so that was never a problem for him. It is odd why this young girl comes on the scene, since there were so many people and women who might have warmed David up. However, we shall see what happens.
