This study says David married Abigal after he married Michal and Jezreel, I don’t agree with that; I have not found in the Word where it says David was married to Jezreel, but that this was a place, a plain in a valley, the Plain of Armageddon. Maybe this is in Jewish history, not sure. For me until I learn different, she was his second wife.

10). How would you describe David’s relationship with women?

His desire for women was a weakness; his son Solomon had this same problem too. But God forgave them and still used them; which is where we find God’s heart “looked beyond their fault and saw their need.” Everything about God has a reason! He chooses the weak thing of this world to confound the things which are mighty; (I Corinthians 1:27)

The answer to why David was considered a man after God’s own heart is found right in the verse: David did whatever God wanted him to do.
