:2-5 David had children during this time.
:6-13 Abner made himself strong in Saul's house during this time. Abner wants to meet with David. David says only if he brings Michal to him. Remember Saul gave her to someone else even though she was David's wife. Abner went into Saul's concubine.
:14-15 David tells Saul's son he wants her back and he gets her from her husband.
:16 Her husband follows and Abner sends him home.
:17-21 Abner tells the tribes following Saul to make David king. That the Lord already has.
:22-23 Joab returns from a fight and they tell him Abner was there.
:24-27 Joab asks why he sent him away in peace. Joab sends for Abner without David knowing and kills him for killing his brother.
:28-30 David hears about it and says it is all on Joab. He had no part in it.
:31-34 David has everyone mourn Abner.
:35-36 The people wanted David to eat but he says not till the sun goes down. It pleases the people.
:37-39 David says these people are hard to rule over and that the Lord will reward the evil doer according to his wickedness.
