poor Palti, son of Laish. David did in fact win Michal's hand in marriage, but he had plenty of wives and concubines. Palti clearly loved Michal... you can tell by the fact that he follows her down the road, weeping, as she is taken from him and given back to David.
who knows how they ended up together? who knows if Palti was a good man or a bad one? but what we do know, and i love how the Bible gives us such human stories to read and marvel at, is that Palti loved Michal.
they told him to go home. and he did. but you can still, thousands of years later, see the look on poor Palti's face as he walked sadly home, heartbroken.
thank You, God, for giving us these little stories of human lives... as it reminds us that our lives matter to You... even us little people.
