we hurt them not
1 Samuel 25:7
25:7 we hurt them not. Nabal lived in Maon, near where David and his men had been for some time while fleeing from Saul (see I Samuel 23:24). While there, they had been careful not to do anything hurtful to the extensive holdings of Nabal. In fact, his men had protected Nabal’s sheep and his servants (I Samuel 25:l5-16).
