"David’s kingdom was not always peaceful. There were those who hated any authority at all. There were those who openly rebelled against him. One such a rebel was Sheba, a Benjamite, from the tribe of the former King Saul. Sheba was bold to demonstrate his rebellion publicly against King David by blowing a trumpet, usually used for military signals, and shouting: “We have no share in David, nor do we have inheritance in the
sons of Jesse; every man to his tents, O Israel!” ( 2 SAM. 20:1). It was Joab and his brother Abishai who confronted this rebellion and pursued after Sheba. Joab cornered Sheba in Abel of Beth Maachah where Joab and all the people with him surrounded the city and battered the wall to throw it down. It was through the actions of a wise woman in that
city that helped resolve the problem of Sheba’s rebellion.
