Dear Rabbi,

I would like to know the name of King David's mother. Where is this written in the Torah? I believe that his father's name was Jesse (Yishai).


Dear Marilyn Rubin,

David's mother's was Nitzevet daughter of Adael. This is not written in the Torah, but rather is recorded in the Talmud, Tractate Bava Batra 91a. The Talmud there also gives the name of Avraham's mother, and of Haman's mother!
