1 Samuel 25:38

And it came to pass about ten days later, that the LORD struck Nabal, that he died.

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
It is better, however, that in correcting these people we shun them when their anger is actually seething; for when they are aroused, they do not perceive what is being said to them. But when they have been restored to their senses, they the more willingly accept words of counsel, as they blush for having been peacefully borne with. For to the mind that is intoxicated with frenzy, everything said that is right appears to be wrong. Wherefore, Abigail laudably did not speak to Nabal about his sin when he was intoxicated, and as laudably told him of it when he became sober. For it was precisely because he did not hear of his fault when drunk that he was able to recognize it. - "Pastoral Care 3.16"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
