Michal

Additional Links

Michal (mî'kal). The second daughter of Saul, 1 Samuel 14:49, and the wife of David. During David's exile she was married to another, Phalti, or Palti, 1 Samuel 25:44; 2 Samuel 3:15, with whom she lived for ten years. After the accession of David to the throne she was restored to him, 2 Samuel 3:13-14; but an estrangement soon took place between them, and on the occasion of one of the greatest triumphs of David's life—the bringing up of the ark to Jerusalem—it came to an open rupture between them, after which her name does not again occur. 2 Samuel 6:23.
