 Abner was furious. “Am I some Judean dog to be kicked
around like this?” he shouted. “After all I have done for
your father, Saul, and his family and friends by not handing
you over to David, is this my reward—that you find fault
with me about this woman? May God strike me and even
kill me if I don’t do everything I can to help David get
what the Lord has promised him! I’m going to take Saul’s
kingdom and give it to David. I will establish the throne
of David over Israel as well as Judah, all the way from Dan
in the north to Beersheba in the south.” Ishbosheth didn’t
dare say another word because he was afraid of what Abner
might do. Then Abner sent messengers to David, saying,
“Doesn’t the entire land belong to you? Make a solemn
pact with me, and I will help turn over all of Israel to you.”

2 Samuel 3:8-12

Abner was a powerful leader for Saul. Once Saul died, Abner continued to lead Saul's loyal people. That is until Saul's son accused Abner of something evil. Abner became upset and decided that he was going to partner with David and help him conquer Saul's people. While Abner didn't fully agree with David, they had one common goal. That common goal was more important than what they disagreed on.
