Did Abigail inherit Nabal’s property?

Thank you for contacting BibleAsk.

About Abigail and Nabal, the Bible records, “Now Abigail went to Nabal, and there he was, holding a feast in his house, like the feast of a king. And Nabal’s heart was merry within him, for he was very drunk; therefore she told him nothing, little or much, until morning light. So it was, in the morning, when the wine had gone from Nabal, and his wife had told him these things, that his heart died within him, and he became like a stone. Then it happened, after about ten days, that the LORD struck Nabal, and he died” (1 Samuel 25:36-38).

In the above passage, the Bible doesn’t specifically mention that Abigail inherited Nabal’s property. But it is assumed that when a husband passes away, his wife becomes the legal inheritor of his estate.
