2 Samuel 3-4. Fall of the House of Saul. David grows in power as King of Judah. Israel, the northern kingdom grows weaker. Abner is the the one holding the northern government together. Abner is the power behind the throne, with all its subtle implications. Upon being insulted by Mephiboshet, Abner resolves to surrender the northern kingdom into David's hands. He does just this. David makes peace with Abner. David make peace, but not Joav. Joav deceives Abner into meeting with him, and then assassinates him. Abner is responsible for uniting all the tribes of Israel under one king, and his reward is to to be murdered. Comparison made between the fate of Abner and the later American President Abraham Lincoln. Joav is mourned but not punished further, even David has limits to his power before his own “man behind the throne.”
