King David made a pact with the Philistines; Rizpah's two sons were massacred, and although against Hebrew law, their bodies lay exposed without burial. For months, night and day, Rizpah, publicly mourned and protected their bodies from predators. Her actions won over King David; he went to war against the Philistines and won. The men had a proper burial and ultimately the famine ended.
"The two sons of Rizpah whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the Lord: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death ... And Rizpah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and allowed neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night."
