Abishag could not have been a young woman.

    Abishag was the "young woman" who was given to King David to keep him warm. I don't know but when I was a young woman, I had to dress in heavy layers to get warm. Hubby and I would go to bed in the winter - him in boxers and a t-shirt and me in sweats or flannel PJs with a t-shirt under the top and wool socks on. Now? Let's just say our roles have reversed. Even my feet are about 100 degrees normally. I WISH I could be cold - it would be helpful.

    So I say that maybe Abishag was a "young woman", with "young" being relative. More than likely, she was a peri-menopausal woman in her 40s. I'm sure of that.
