"David had eight wives, including Maacah, the daughter of a king who ruled over the tiny nation of Geshur (2 Samuel 3:3).

In the Psalms, we read about David’s struggles with God as his son was pursuing him, trying to kill him to steal his throne. But how did Maacah feel about this? Was she hostile toward David for being such a poor father to Absalom? (he was). Who was she cheering for? The Scriptures do not tell us. But Abasalom was killed, and she experienced motherhood gone sour." Pastor Ed Vasicek
