The Metzudat David, a classical commentator on the Books of the Prophets, explains that the prophetess Abigail is warning David that he should only kill people while fighting God’s wars against the Philistines, and not kill in order to take vengeance against his enemies among the Israelites. This is one of the foundations of Jewish military ethics. The People of Israel are required to fight wars to defend themselves and to strengthen the Promised Land. Other wars are not permitted. The State of Israel follows this Biblical mandate. This is shown even in the name of the army- the Israeli Defense Forces, the most moral army in the world.
