Abner ben Ner: (d. circa 872 BCE) General of Saul's army. After Saul's death he proclaimed Ish Bosheth king. Later, realizing that Ish Bosheth's rule could not last, he negotiated a peace agreement with Ish Bosheth's rival, David—but was treacherously killed by Joab. David repudiated the murder and ordered all of Israel to mourn Abner's death.
For an informed reading of Kings 2:1–12
There were a number of things that David wanted to see happen, but which could be carried out only after his death.
