"This shall be no grief unto thee, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that thou hast shed blood causeless, or that 
my lord hath avenged himself: but when the LORD shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember thine handmaid."
1 Samuel 25, King James Version [Abigail to David].

"David the seventh: Whose sisters were Zeruiah, and Abigail."
1 Chronicles 2:15-16 King James Version [merely half-sister].

[Fricka:— Mir schaudert das Herz, es schwindelt mein Hirn: bräutlich umfing die Schwester der Bruder!
Wann ward es erlebt, daß leiblich Geschwister sich liebten?]
Richard Wagner, The Valkyrie, Act II, Scene 1 [Wotan:— Listen honest advice of Wisdom. Bless thou with laughter of Love.]
